We import Glass Blocks from Germany, we do not stock any of their products, there is a waiting period of 6-8 weeks.
GBW always recommend a frame as the frame allows for the contraction and expansion of glass blocks against the different building materials, guaranteeing that the glass blocks will not crack. It also allows for quicker and easier installation, security and aesthetically will match other windows in your home. Our frames can be Powder-coated to match design requirements. The Ezylay Silicone System cannot be installed without a frame.
If you are a competent handy person then you can absolutely install the glass blocks yourself. GBW can supply you with a complete DIY kit in either the Ezylay Silicone or Mortar Systems OR do the installation for you. The Installation guides can be found on this link Ezylay Silicone System Installation guide or Ezylay Mortar System Installation Guide. Just give us a call or email and we can guide you through the process
Glass Blocks are only fire rated compliant if they are installed correctly using the system and in accordance to the tests that were performed in Europe and to CSIRO opinions. It is therefore imperative that the installers have been trained specifically for fire rated glass block applications as the glass blocks, framing, reinforcing, joint sizing and fixing details different to normal installations.
