2 sided support

Panel supported on two sides with an unsupported top and one vertical edge

This style of panel can be constructed with Rods & Mortar, Easifix should not be considered.

A panel supported at the base and restrained into just one vertical side (jamb) will probably be finished using end glass blocks** and a double-end glass block at the open corner to make the panel look aesthetically pleasing. 

To increase the panel strength, double stainless steel reinforcement bars, each course horizontally, must be incorporated.

The open unsupported edge if subjected to impact may vibrate ever so slightly, not a major area for concern, just a point that should be noted, when considering the location of this style of panel and relevance to its environment or application. For example it is highly advisable not to use this panel style in a nightclub, bar environment or in an area subjected to high levels of general public traffic like a shopping centre. However, a hair or beauty salon, office reception area or shower screen is fine. 

This style of panel should only be installed using Rods & Mortar, never Easifix! 

**End blocks are not available in every style & pattern!
