TOWER BRIDGE

Few views are as simultaneously awe-inspiring and disconcerting as watching the parade of traffic, pedestrians and even boats from the 42 metre high glass walkway in Tower Bridge

THE TASK

To mark its 120th anniversary this iconic landmark was given a facelift to make the most of the stunning Thames Views. The installation of a glass floor along the two 11.5 meter long high-level walkways was the perfect way to add another special dimension to the Tower for the half a million visitors who experience the attraction every year.


LET’S GET TECHNICAL

Glassolutions won the contract to design and manufacture the glass which was inserted into the walkways. The existing floors were removed and a steel frame was installed into which the new 80 mm thick one way glass floor panels. These comprise of seven layers of glass making the new structure able of withstanding the weight of six elephants!
