The Glass Block Possibilities Using Seves Glass Blocks

With the closing of Pittsburgh Corning earlier this year, a lot of the glass block industry was changed. The ripple effects of their exit from the industry are still being felt, but it isn’t the end of glass blocks. Seves Glass Block, a division of The Seves Group, a well-known company that manufactures glass and composite insulators for electrical systems, as well as glass block, has been the go-to in the glass block industry all over Europe. The Seves Group is based out of Italy and their market reaches all the way to the Western hemisphere. Seves Glass Block offers many different colored glass blocks, 3-D glass blocks, trapezoidal glass blocks and more. Their glass block products have been used all across the world which can be seen in the videos on our YouTube channel.

Seves Glass Block offers many different types of glass blocks, not only in different styles but also different little tweaks among styles. For example, they offer what is called “satin” that can be on one or both faces of the blocks. Their selection of color blocks come in both a wavy style and a completely see-through style simply named Clearview. The different combinations of glass blocks that is offered by Seves is something that is unmatched. An international trade show for construction materials and building solutions called Construtec took place in Madrid, Spain in October 2016. Seves Glass Block had a beautiful exhibit that highlighted much of what they offer used in different ways. In the next video below you can see the video highlight 3-D glass blocks, their solid glass bricks called Vetropienos, trapezoidal glass blocks, the Clearview in both color and non-color, the wavy style in both color and non-color, color glass blocks with the satin finish, circular glass blocks and much more. It’s really a cool video with lots of glass block uses in just a few minutes and limited space!
