The safewall corner post offers a solution for connecting two glass block panels around a 90O corner, allowing all manner of glass block features to be created:
A corner post is 2700mm long and is cut to size to suit the floor-to-ceiling height on site. It is 3” x 3” (75mm x 75mm) square box profile extruded from aluminium. Available as standard in gloss white (Ral: 9010) or a metallic silver grey (Ral: 9006), the paint finish is powder coated which is extremely durable.
Stainless steel posts can be supplied to order but are more expensive by comparison.
How to fit a corner post
A corner post is secured in place with two specially fabricated boss sections, one screwed to the floor and other to the ceiling. The post then slides in and locates. They boss sections are available in either brushed satin or a high polished stainless steel finish.
The corner post must be positioned prior to constructing the glass block panels.
To use Rods & Mortar in conjunction with a corner post the horizontal reinforcement bars are drilled and inserted into the post (apply a dab of silicone to the hole). When using Easifix, it is advisable to secure the Easifix sleeve and timber to the end post to make building easier and to screw the anchor brackets to the timber. This is more straightforward than trying to screw fix the anchor bracket to the end post.
An alternative to using safewall corner post is the range of corner glass blocks.
Corner posts carry no fire rating so cannot be used as part of fire-resistant glass block wall.
An end posts can only be used in conjunction with 80m- thick glass blocks.
