    Does anyone know if or how to drill a hole in glass board flooring? I'm installing an automatic door and am not sure what kind of bit to use.

    In general, two types of drill bits can be successfully used on glass: tungsten carbide spear-tipped drill bits and diamond-tipped drill bits; there are also diamond-coated drill bits. Carbide-tipped drill bits are most commonly used for non-tempered glass, ceramics and tiles.

    I think the question was about glass board and not glass. Any drill bit for metal will work fine for glass board.
