Mortar or Mortar-less Installation
You can choose either Mortar Installation or the new Pittsburgh Corning ProVantage™ Glass Block Installation System. The ProVantage™ Glass Block Installation System is a mortar-less method that incorporates a special spacer system and joint finish to make it easier than ever before to build beautiful glass block walls and showers. (Refer to this video on “how to install glass block“)
Glass Block Shower Kits are available in either the Decora® or IceScapes® Glass Block patterns. The bases of the shower kits are special because they are specially designed to accommodate glass block through molded channels that serve as guides for block placement. Also, they are constructed to support the extra weight of glass block walls.
The NAHB Research Center has certified the bases to meet Z124.2. Glass block installed with mortar is exempt from the safety glazing requirements of all model building codes. The bases are made of Lucite® XL cast acrylic. This high quality material resists chipping and peeling. In the rare event the material scratches, polishing will restore it back to the original shine. Color goes all the way through the material. This hard, non-porous surface prevents dirt from accumulating and resists stains better than other materials. With normal use, Lucite® cast acrylic will retain its beauty with only a minimal amount of care. Low maintenance is always a big plus for a bathroom shower.
