Glass blocks offer several installation options. Each of them is specific and offers various advantages, but also disadvantages. Below we have prepared a clear comparison of all available types of assembly for you.

If necessary, do not hesitate to contact us by email or phone.

Pros and cons:
  • suitable for all types of glass blocks
  • flexible space between the blocks (2-16mm)
  • good installation costs
  • good for exterior and interior
  • not recommended for amateurs
What you need:
  • mortar mixed with class 3.25 cement or our Vetromalta cement, made especially for glass blocks
  • iron roxors for better stability and mechanical resistance
  • spacers to create precise gaps between blocks
1. Good mortar base

We start the assembly by preparing a good mortar base on the assembly surface. After the applied mortar has dried, we go to step two.

2. Place the blocks

Place the blocks on the laid foundation and join them with mortar from below and from the sides. As you place the individual glass blocks, be sure to separate them with spacers.

3. Insert roxors

We can now insert roxors between the individual blocks for better building stability. Roxors should not be more than 50cm apart. If possible, insert roxors horizontally, mounted on the side wall.

4. Assembly completion

Continue installing new rows according to steps 2 and 3, until the assembly is completed.

5. Finish the last details

When the construction is finished, you can remove excessive mortar and, if necessary, additionally fill the joints. Finally, peel off the protective foils from blocks and thoroughly clean the wall.
