How To Put A Maglock On A 100% Glass Door With Glass Windows

I was asked to put in a maglock onto a glass door that has glass windows around it. Im not sure how doable it is without breaking the door. The door installer says you cant safely drill into the door without breaking it.

A different idea I came up with is maybe putting in a floor mounting strike, which I am not sure is doable.

Here are the photos of the door: http://imgur.com/a/FqEG4

Any suggestions?

Thank you
