Wonderful Glass Block Windows

Nov 3rd

Glass block windows are an architectural element used in homes and businesses. Blocks comprising 8 x 8 inch (20.32 x 20.32 cm) designed to fit within a typical masonry wall. They can be used both outside and inside a building, such as a window and a light source. Main function of these windows is to provide a light source and create a feeling of openness in a space while an element of privacy than traditional windows do not provide is maintained.

Glass block windows units typically come in 8 “by 8″ (20.32 x 20.32 inches) so that they can be established with traditional concrete blocks. These are hollow, but still surprisingly heavy. Modern units are made of acrylic and therefore are lighter. While traditional glass blocks are placed individually, like bricks, there are models available today that actually come pre-assembled form of window. These can be installed in same way as a traditional window, and require no specific masonry skill.
