ThinkGlass has created modern that are a work of art in their own right. Their stair treads are “smooth and aesthetic edges that show no lamination lines” and “the many textures offered bring an organic touch and allow for a perfectly anti-skid surface.”
The glass is naturally hygienic since it is non-porous, and thus, does not harbor mold or bacteria. What’s more, it is an eco-friendly option since the designs are 100% fully recyclable, radon free, and do no impact air quality.
ThinkGlass shares on their website the many other reasons why people should consider Glass Treads:
Light: Glass allows light to flow through the stairs, creating a very airy and luxurious dwelling. As natural light permeates the space, it produces different moods and forms a seamless transition between rooms. Glass can also be used in landings and “see-throughs” from one floor to another to add even more visual interest and drama. Glass makes a dramatic entrance. A staircase is a natural architectural centerpiece and often makes the first impression as one enters a home or business. Don’t miss the opportunity to make it spectacular!
No Lamination: No more unsightful lamination lines, thanks to ThinkGlass and the cutting-edge innovation of their polished edge, glass treads can finally show the real beauty of pure glass.
Strong and Durable: Glass is strong and durable. In fact, glass treads of 1.5-inches thickness are up to three times stronger than granite or stone, and they can bear a load of 1800 lbs. at the center of a 36” wide tread. All ThinkGlass treads pass mandated strength requirement testing and are laminated on the underside with an invisible safety film for extra security.
Personalized: Endless design possibilities let you customize steps to suit any room. ThinkGlass offers seven organic textures and two edge treatments – along with crystal or aqua color choices – to allow you to create a unique and personalized tread. You even have the option of installing LED lighting for a soft, glowing effect.
Slip Resistant: Glass steps are slip resistant. An imbedded texture provides an anti-skid surface that is scratch- proof and easily hides any smudges or streaks. ThinkGlass stair treads exceed current standards for “coefficient of friction” requirements as specified by ASTM section c1028, Underwriters Laboratories UL-410, and ADA.
