Glass Block Energy Efficiency Film Solution

What Makes Glass Block Different?
Versatility…that’s what.

Glass block is often chosen to replace traditional windows when an added touch of elegance or a unique design alternative is desired. Glass block also creates open spaces and brings architectural enhancement to glass areas in bathrooms, kitchens, stairways, office reception areas, and  hotel and large commercial lobbies. The versatility of glass block makes it an impressive choice of glass for any home or building’s decor.

How does our tint make your glass block better? Comfort and energy efficiency is added…that’s how!

Though glass block can provide visionary benefits that  traditional glass doesn’t, the inadequacies of block glass can often outweigh the benefits:

  • solar energy penetration
  • UV ray exposure
  • excessive sun glare

These three factors cause heat discomfort, fading of interior furnishings, and  increased danger of skin cancer from UV ray exposure.  In many instances, the glare streaming through glass block disrupts watching TVs and computer monitors.

Glass Block Tinting resolves these issues with our tint application that blocks up to 83% of the solar heat without hampering any of the natural light to pass through.
