Glass Block Continues to be a “Hot” Trend

The glass block phenomena which began in the early 1900’s is more popular than ever. This glass architectural triumph adds stylish appearance along with the benefit of privacy.

It’s easy to see how glass block adds beauty and allows natural light to come in. All while providing just the right amount of blur for privacy.

So what could possibly be wrong with this picture?

 

A LOT…..

Along with the loveliness of light filling your residence, heat, glare, and UV rays have an open invitation as they too enter through glass block. Heat can be so severe that often glass blocked areas can not be occupied. Glass block in a family room or office results in the inability to see computers monitors and watch television. And UV rays are a major factor for causing skin damage and fading of interior furnishings.

Unfortunately,  the beauty of glass block can be tainted by such problems.
