Open Road BMW – We Like Their Cars, They Like Our Glass Blocks.

We have recently done a few previous articles on our glass blocks being used in commercial applications, we figure, why stop now? This car dealership down in Edison, NJ was undergoing some renovations and were looking for something “different” to make their dealership look one of a kind. Despite the supremely well-known name BMW, this dealership did in fact stand out as they wanted to. Why? Because they gave us a call.


The dealership inquired about having some glass blocks incorporated into their design layout and we were happy to help them figure out what worked best. BMW is a high end car company where looks is a primary factor driving their business; the same goes for our glass blocks. They had decided to use our product on the interior of the business directly behind the reception desk, smack-dab in the middle of the showroom floor. Other than the beautiful cars, it is the most noticeable thing in the place.


The people at Open Road BMW decided to go with IceScapes glass blocks. The location of the blocks required us to use 8×8 blocks with 4×8 and corner blocks. They had requested we use mortar instead of silicone when installing these because they liked the clean, traditional look of the white grid lines the mortar makes. It wasn’t a huge job nor was it difficult at all to complete, but it sure was nice to get to show our products off in a top end car dealership.

We went back to check them out and caught people in the showroom noticing the glass blocks we had installed. Being that there are some pretty nice works of art sitting around them, you could say we were thrilled to see people notice our work of art as well.
