Pittsburgh Corning Is No Longer Making Glass Blocks?

Pittsburgh Corning has been the leading global glass block manufacturer for the past 79 years.  Unable to recover from the housing market crash in 2008 and feeling pressure from a growing insurgence of foreign imports, Pittsburgh Corning will no longer be making glass blocks.

However, the demand for glass block from consumers and architectures is on the rise!

What attributes to this popular demand?

The WOW factor!

It’s obvious to see that glass block adds beauty and luster that plain, traditional glass can’t. Whether used in a residence or an office building, glass block can change the ordinary to looking quite extraordinary!

Then why do so many home owners, property managers, and business owners call Glass Block Tinting!

Glass block technology allows transmission of sun light to enter rooms but it does so without the ability to decrease the sun’s heat, glare, and ultraviolet penetration.  Areas can become so uncomfortably hot and the glare can become so disruptive that until now,  options for relief were limited and not at all “glass block friendly”!

  • Thermal screens
  • Solar shades
  • Custom window treatments

We’ve even seen “tin foil” taped to blocks!

Except for the tin foil option, the other mentioned alternatives are  quite expensive.  And honestly? Your rooms would be dark and the awesome glass blocks that you love so much would be hidden.

Glass Block Tinting offers the most affordable, most effective solution without minimizing the beauty of your glass blocks!

 

With this glass block window in multiple areas of their home, the discomfort became intense. They picked out film with the highest degree of heat  and glare resistance.

 

 

Same window from an exterior view illustrates how the film compliments the glass blocks. With our specialty tint applied on all of their blocked areas, our customers were  totally overjoyed with  the comfort inside without having to cover up their windows.

 

The Perfect Solution!

Our exterior window tinting  is customized to fit any size glass blocks, eliminates 99% of UV rays with up to 83% solar heat rejection.  Without hiding your glass block architecture, our tinting application enhances  the glass block allure and adds energy efficiency and UV protection. 

For those not living within reasonable travel distance from our Florida based company, we offer a DIY kit that can be purchased directly from our website.  Our DIY  kits are shipped worldwide as the film is remarkably resilient in any climate.

One of our long distance customers sent us pictures of herself applying tint using our DIY installation kit.

Wella!

Her completed project! She is now able to fully enjoy the large entry foyer of her beautiful home!

If you have glass block in your home or office, or have plans to include glass block architecture in the future, we encourage you to visit Glass Block Tinting.  

And within the state of Florida, we’d love to hear from you!

Bask In The Benefits of Window Film While Basking in the Sun

Opening up buildings with natural light and views to the outside, windows have become a popular choice in today’s architecture. Unfortunately, the additional glass in homes and commercial buildings also opens up the window (pardon the pun) to higher than ever energy costs, heat build-up, excessive glare and a  greater chance of premature fading of interior furnishings.

Window film eliminates these problems and allows you to save money while basking in the sun-light, safely and comfortably!

Key Benefits:

  • Window film corrects temperature imbalances to give occupants a cooler environment throughout the building.
  • With up to 79% heat rejection, glass treated with window film can save up to 30% on energy costs.  So much for money going out the window!
  • No more annoying interruption watching TV and working on computer monitors with 95% of the sun’s glare blocked by the window film.
  • With a 99% reduction in UV rays, window film preserves the color of interior furnishings and helps to protect occupants from harmful UV radiation linked to pre-mature aging and cancers of the skin.
  • Costing approximately one-tenth of having new windows installed, window film is an effective, affordable alternative to window replacement.

We are the most highly recommended company for window tinting Tampa homes, commercial buildings, and yachts. Our wide selection of films includes ceramic based coatings which are free of dye or metal that provide neutral, non-reflective views while keeping out the sun’s negative elements from disrupting your home or business.

Call for a complimentary evaluation and one of our window film specialists will demonstrate how the films will look and perform on your glass.
