A glass floor is a transparent section of a floor, found most often in buildings (usually in the observation decks of towers), or in boats in order to facilitate viewing directly beneath where one is standing.
At 4000 feet (1219 m), the highest glass floor above ground is the novel outdoor application of the Grand Canyon Skywalk, operated by the Hualapai Indian tribe. The highest above ground level in a freestanding structure is in the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario at 1122 feet (342 m).
