Glass block is unique in that it lets in light, but obstructs the view of anyone looking in from the outside, thus providing privacy to those indoors.
Furthermore, glass block acts as a deterrent to burglars. Since these contract masonry units are bonded together with cement, you can’t open them from the interior or exterior without heavy-duty tools. In fact, when mortared together, glass blocks are almost as strong as a building’s foundation wall.
Glass block isn’t just for exterior walls and windows. You can use glass block to define entryways, separate office spaces, and much more. Since it provides privacy while still letting light through, glass block supplies the perfect solution to dividing interior spaces while maintaining an open atmosphere.
