Location

Edmonton International Airport

The design team working on the new Edmonton International Airport terminal asked Jockimo to develop glass flooring panels that could safely handle the weight of an airport passenger vehicle. The glass was engineered by Jockimo to be a total of 5 layers of 1/2" Low Iron tempered glass - with the bottom two layers of glass being offset to accommodate the metal support system.

The panels are 2-1/2" (63.5mm) thick to meet weight requirements and ASTM E2751, Standard Practice for Design and Performance of Supported Glass Walkways. The glass flooring panels can carry a 3,800 lb. (1,724 kg.) load.
