Terrifying Glass floors you wouldn't walk on - and one you would

Here at ROOFWINDOWS4YOU, we are used to the high-life - with FAKRO DXW WALK-ON WINDOWS being a particular favourite of ours...


What’s not to like about a smooth flat piece of toughened glazing set into a beautifully designed roof window? They’d grace any stylish terrace and bring plenty of light into the room below.

Whether it's Summer or Winter, garden parties on your terrace with an unusual, yet affordable, glass masterpiece will surely make your companions FAKRO-green with envy.

The idea of walking across glass is quite surreal, but exciting – there’s a little daredevil in us all.

The RoofWindows4You Digital Team have been extensively researching glass floors and there are certainly a few jaw-droppers across the world. But even we would stop short at walking on some of these ultra-scary examples of extreme glass engineering.

So here’s the question, would you be brave enough to stride confidently across all of these perilous looking walkways? Or, like the RoofWindows4You Digital Team, would you retreat to the comfort of your own flat roof extension and enjoy the high life with a DXW flat roof window from FAKRO?
