COLOURS, FINISHES

A wide variety of colours, patterns and sizes are available in smooth or satin finishes. Satin finish blocks come with peel off protective plastic film for easy handling during installation. Custom sandblasting is also available.

PRE-CAST PANEL SYSTEM

Pre-assembled glass block panels can be fabricated to reduce installation time and cost while providing superior quality finished appearance. Individual panels are custom made to fit the requirements of the specific job. Small enough to be managed on site by one or two people, they, nonetheless reduce the number of joints that need to be made on site. The result is a glass block structure that is easier to erect while allowing more than competitive cost with traditional techniques.

Pre-cast glass block panels need not be only straight.

We even pre-construct curved or serpentine walls in modular sections. Simply provide us with your design, and we will create a template that will be used to cast the panels. A copy of this template will be supplied to you for site location of curve and adjacent wall positions.

Pre-cast glass block panels can be supplied palletized and ready for shipping or picked up directly from our warehouse.

SERVICES

We can provide design assistance. We will create detailed drawings showing the correct positions for wall panel anchors, horizontal joint reinforcing, spacers and expansion material. Expert installation is available.
