For example, a Fiberstone glass composite with 21 mm laminated glass can be used with a maximum spacing of approx. 750 mm between supporting structures. A 1500 x 1500 mm panel needs to be supported on a frame every 750 mm. Panels are fitted on a perfectly flat, horizontal metal framework. The technical design of the framework should be performed by the metalwork supplier in accordance with the characteristics of the marble-glass panels.
A neoprene should be used between the support frame and the glass gasket.
To join with another floor surface, the edges of the marble should be protected by an edge covering section (glued with silicone).
Non-greasy silicone sealant suitable for marble (e.g. Dow Corning DC 897) or PU sealant should be used.
Seals containing carbon must not be used.
Joints between panels minimum 2 mm:
or filled with non-staining flexible seal,
or stabilised with nylon glazier's shims.
In all cases the glass and marble must not be in direct contact with metal sections.
Expansion joints should be used at the edges of rooms, around pillars and where the panels meet other floor surfaces.
