When tourists step over them, the glass panels on the floor turn from translucent to transparent. The raft base of the system and parts of Zabeel Park can be seen below as you step over the window.
The floor of the bridge is filled with a total of 116 square meters of switchable smart glass.

The making of the Dubai Frame!
The Dubai Frame concept was inspired by the winning entry of a contest by Dubai Municipality and German engineering giant ThyssenKrupp.
To minimize the wind effect on the building without decreasing the architectural view of the structure, architects made various design changes, including porous cladding and a building damper.
The Dubai Frame exterior concept was influenced by the Expo 2020 logo.
The Dubai Frame was designed using more than 2,900 square meters of laminated glass. More than 3,600 experts, including engineers, architects, technicians, and staff, have collaborated to make the dream of the Dubai Frame a reality.
Four giant hydraulic jacks, each capable of raising 300 tonnes, raised the viewing deck. Over two days, the whole process took place, raising 3.5mm per second. The raising of all the materials for the respective towers was the task of two giant cranes atop each tower. The cranes could lift 12 tonnes each.
Visitors are brought to the Sky Bridge by four elevators designed by ThyssenKrupp.
In Zabeel Park, the jaw-dropping structure has been identified as the most extensive photo frame on the earth. Visitors who came for the skyline’s panoramic views from a 93-meter-long observation bridge that features glass-floored walkways were thrown open in 2018. The distinct photo-frame architecture frames views of buildings across the Dubai skyline, such as the Burj Khalifa, for people across the region.
