Glass Floors and Stairs

For load-bearing safety glass floors and stairs, laminates made with DuPont™ SentryGlas® offer an extra level of deflection strength and structural integrity.

Clear, tough and as much as 100 times stiffer than PVB, DuPont™ SentryGlas® ionoplast helps structural engineers design laminated glass with a "wow" factor.

The following area features examples of SentryGlas® use in glass floors and stairs.  For more design examples, see the complete Design Gallery.
