Glass Block Technology works in close liaison with Architects & Designers offering every assistance with all aspects of specifying and incorporating glass blocks into any conceivable project.
We assist in selecting the most suitable installation method for internal, external, straight, curved & fire rated glass block walling, whether loose build or precast. After completing hundreds of projects & supplying over 4 million glass blocks, we also work along side structural engineers when investigating loadings, calculations to primary & secondary framing design.
Our services are aimed at offering support & technical advice from feasibility to design with architects to managing construction through to completion, with main contractor & installation specialist. We have a good relationship with NHBC & testing laboratories, like Warrington Fire Research, BRE & Windtech, therefore can communicate & liaise with private or public building control, with respect to all regulatory interpretations.
Data sheets are available for all glass block connection types detailing all restraint details to varying substrata, like: masonry, steel box section & u-channel, to rendered apertures.
They cover each installation type from Rods & Mortar, Precast Concrete Walls & Precast Concrete Floor Panels to Easifix & Precast Easifix. They can be printed as PDF’s for quick reference, but by registering your email address & logging in, each detail can be downloaded as a DWG file, for ease of importing & editing.
