Jojo is right. I don't necessarily want to do the job for you. It is too detailed, specialized and expensive. So it would be too time consuming for me and somewhat useless, so get yourself a Glass expert, it should be a percent of the job, that is if you want to do it and I'm sure you do, well. Otherwise you'll need a parachute.
Thanks for asking anyway.

It is laminated and usually depending on the size is 3 ply each 1/2" to 3/4" so it could be 1-1/2-2-/14" do not attempt to build without Glass engneering. It is bespoke for the application. Let me know if you need help.

Thank you for your very good question bepsf. Of course it is, and fun as Rebecca hints.. The first glass floor I stepped on was at Tower Records in London in 1985, 27 years ago. Old technology very safe. It has to be properly designed and engineered, as well as built to code as this one is. You can go to your nearest Apple store and most likely they will have a Glass staircase. Call first!
Let us know if you have other questions.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here’s a glass floor landing at the top of a staircase, looking down onto the library. Install a skylight above the glass floor to bring extra natural light into the room below. And check your fear of heights at the front door!
John Hill added this to Lighten Up With Glass Floors
Glass floors need not be limited to walkways or bridges. This square patch of glass floor helps bring light to the library below.
