Advantages of Glass Block
1. Wide range of design options (patterns, sizes, colors)
Straight, curved, and discontinuous curved walls are available through selection of glass block sizes. Patterns permit light control and use of transparent of non-transparent glass block. A colorful atmosphere can be created by choosing colored blocks.
The inside of each glass block is a near-vacuum with pressure of 0.3 atm. This provides the glass block with higher heat insulating value than double glazed glass, qualifying the glass block as an energy-saving building material.
The glass block creates an agreeable living environment by transmitting, refracting, of reflecting light. The transparent glass block permits a view of the surrounding landscape, thereby giving a more open feeling. Moreover, the glass block creates a quieter space by reducing noise.
Properly installed glass block wall is normally reliable. It is wind and earthquake-resistant, and also offers protection against crime.
5. Maintenance Free
The easy to clean and condensation-free glass block facilitates building maintenance. If cracked, a glass block readily replaceable.
