Solution

The Glazing Vision walk on rooflight solution was used to comply with building regulations loading requirements. Due to the usage of a concrete upstand a 310mm screen printed border to obscure the below kerb was used. Also an EPDM waterproof membrane was used bonded between the frame and the concrete, this prevents any moisture ingress. For an anti slip frit a ceramic dot matrix pattern was chosen.
