New York, New Jersey, Boston, Philadelphia
Real glass block has a wide variety of applications in your home. Don’t be fooled by alternative plastic/acrylic block. Only real glass block offers the large selection of patterns, sizes, and shapes. This flexibility in product choice allows the designer to achieve the specific goals for the project.
Glass block provides not just beauty, but also security and privacy. It is also environmentally friendly, as demonstrated by its contribution to LEED ratings and Daylighting.
Some great applications are;
Glass block windows need almost no maintenance while providing your home superior insulation, security, and lighting. Glass block can used for basement windows providing resistance to flooding and burglary break-ins. It can be used to increase the curb appeal of your home while allowing light to fill the inside spaces.
Showers represent the second highest use of Glass Block in homes, after windows. A glass block shower can make any bathroom appear larger. To eliminate the hassle of a custom design, glass block shower kits provide an easy way to create the shower of your dreams. These kits include glass block, base and door for most applications.
The clarity of glass block allows light to flow through, making the room appear larger and more open. Lights added behind the glass block in a kitchen island or bar adds an additional artistic flare.
Glass block makes a great first impression that lasts. Using glass block in a foyer allows light to open up the area and creates a statement of welcome. However, you are not sacrificing security for beauty. Glass block let’s light in but still provides a sturdy barrier against severe weather, as well as, individuals with ill intentions.
Walls and Partitions
Don’t think that a partition needs to block light or close in an area. Using glass block for walls and partitions opens up the area and makes it appear larger. You can make a wall a work of art. Whether you are looking for a sturdy, washable surface that can withstand the activities in a rec room or you want a room divider that makes a statement, glass block can fulfill your requirements.
