Eiffel Tower Installs Glass Floor for Incredible New View of Paris
Paris has long been known as the “City of Light” and just last month, the Eiffel Tower further enhanced the tourist experience by incorporating a feature that makes it even more breathtaking—a new glass floor on the first floor that highlights a different kind of view of the sparkling city. Visitors and Parisians alike can now enjoy the classic views that the Eiffel is known for and glance 187 feet below on the glass landing.
While the Eiffel Tower is just one of the latest worldwide attractions jumping on the glass flooring trend, this product isn’t limited to inspiring landmarks (SkyView at the Grand Canyon) and commercial buildings like the Willis Tower in Chicago. Many homeowners are wondering how to incorporate dramatic glass floor elements, like the ones available at Innovate Building Solutions.
Believe it or not, structural glass floors, ceilings, bridges, and pavers are popping up in buildings around the world, including inside residential homes. Whether they are used to highlight a stunning water feature, work together under a sky light to open up a space and fill it with natural light or are implemented to give stairs a sleek, modern edge, glass floors make a huge impact on the overall feel of a space.
The glass flooring system offered by Innovate Building Solutions is unique in that it includes the supporting aluminum framework as well, is easy to install, can be put into wood, tile, stone or concrete floors. Buyers can choose from a completely transparent look or go for a more private, acid-etched option that transmits light but is impossible to see through.
The team at Innovate can also provide structural details about installing this durable, lightweight system in any retail space, commercial office or home.
