Bespoke design, fabrication and supply or installation service for walk-on glass in properties, well covers and many other design features.Supplying the whole of the UK we can undertake a complete bespoke service or supply the product in kit form for your installer. Our work has been featured in stunning London residential properties and Channel 4’s ‘Amazing Spaces’ with George Clark. Made to any shape it is safe and extremely strong. You can walk, dance or drive over our system. It is a totally bespoke solution; each steel support frame and pane of glass is designed on computer then produced by our CNC machine for complete accuracy. We provide expert advice and supply technical drawings for approval and can liaise with ground workers and other trades on site. We can apply the world-leading Ritec hydrophobic coating to ensure your glass looks its best for longer.
DecorationsWe can apply a painted or sandblasted border on the glass and this obscures much of the frame from above, leaving a sleek and unobtrusive appearance.
High quality installationThe steel powder coated support frames feature a ready-fitted rubber gasket so that fitting the glass is by simply lowering into place. It then requires a low modulus silicone bead applying to the edge to prevent dirt, grit and water from sitting in the rebate. We supply the low modulus silicone as part of the steel support system this is because standard silicone will attack the laminate layer and cause the glass to split around the edges. Our site survey will determine the correct specification and provide a proof drawing for approval prior to advance payment. The technical drawing is useful to liaise with builders or tradesmen working on site to give them a representation of how the finished product will look and work as they make preparations for installation.
Well coversWhen supplying well covers we strongly recommend having a Ritec hydrophobic coating on the underneath of the glass which helps to combat condensation build up. We would usually have an etched or painted border around the edge of the glass which helps to obscure the steel support frame underneath and makes for a better finish.

Due to the incredibly high premium on building plots in north London this private residential property was constructed over the top of a drainage culvert. As emergency/maintenance access was needed at all times through the floor of the basement a false floor was constructed and covered with white decorative stones. We installed a walk-on glass system to create an architectural feature. The installation turned out to be a real talking point with a superb visual effect. We supplied the client with suction lifters and instructions so the floor could be removed safely if ever maintenance work was needed on the culvert
This installation was featured on Channel 4s ‘Amazing Spaces’.
We were approached by a couple who live in a converted railway station on the privately run Wensleydale Railway line in North Yorkshire. They were converting an old railway cart into a garden room/gin bar and were looking for some inspiration along with functional items. We created an area in front of the bar with an infinity drop walk-on-glass feature. The owner had some old rail tracks that we trimmed and fitted into the cavity to give the illusion of running off into the depths of the hole. We also supplied and fitted an etched mirror with the logo of the original railway company that built the original track. This was complimented with etched window glass and a painted glass hearth fitted behind the original train guard’s coal fire. This was a great project to be involved in and fantastic to see a piece of local history turned into an ‘Amazing Space’.
During extensive renovations to a period property in the Yorkshire Dales our client uncovered a well to the rear of the building. It had been filled in with hundreds of years of detritus and revealed some interesting finds. The property was called Well Cottage but the feature was hidden and it was fantastic to bring the feature back to prominance for our client. Rather than having the walk-on glass at floor level it was agreed the sides would built up to create a table platform on the yard for relaxing, dining or dancing! The end result is a stunning garden feature.
