Glass as a flooring option introduces new architectural opportunities allowing designers to play with color & light; defining space.
Bear Glass’s Anti-Slip Glass Floors & Treads are fully tested and engineered walking surfaces designed to instill confidence. Even in the most demanding traffic conditions Bear Glass flooring will exceed expectations; wet or dry.
Bear Glass is the premier distributor for Walker Glass. This alliance allows us to offer Walker`s entire line of products because since we buy in bulk from them we are able to save our clients time and money. In regards to traction glass, we carry Walker Textures™ Traction Glass.
Walker Textures™ Traction – the ultimate anti-slip glass flooring product. Multi-level acid-etching of the Traction surface provides an unprecedented design option by combining discretion and security without impeding the natural flow of light.
Traction is an all-glass flooring solution, using no coatings, paints or appliqués susceptible to chipping or flaking off. The slip resistant properties of Traction glass are entirely derived through acid etching, whereby portions of the glass surface are removed to varying depths by a controlled process. The result is attractive and durable anti-slip surfaces, characterised by striking designs. The unique combination of opacity and translucency provides for full privacy, while still allowing for maximum circulation of light between floors.
Walker Textures™ Traction offers many advantages, including:
- Superior slip resistance
- Obscures view while maintaining a high level of light transmittance
- Unique design
- Consistent acid-etched finish
- Conducive to high quality edgework
- More durable than applied coatings
- Superior resistance to surface contamination from dirt, oils, chemicals, liquids, food, etc.
- Free of iridescence
| Glass Pattern 406 Technical Data on Acid-etched Anti-slip glass
Traction glass provides a high slip resistant coefficient based on two recognized test methods. The following data has been tested and reported by the Tile Council of North America, an independent product testing facility:
ANSI/NFSI B101.1: ”Test Method for Measuring wet SCOF of common Hard-Surface Floor Materials”
Static Coefficient of Friction (SCOF) – Wet Conditions
Pattern 406: 0.68
ASTM C1028: “Standard Test Method for Determining the Static Coefficient of Friction of Ceramic Tile and Other Like Surfaces by the Horizontal Dynamometer Pull-Meter Method”
Static Coefficient of Friction
Dry: 0.76 Wet: 0.60
Dry: 0.74 Wet: 0.60
