SEVES is Changing the Glass Block Industry
For decades, glass block has been considered a reliable and functional material used to create a stable, translucent surface that provides a durable barrier while admitting light. Manufactured with durability that incorporates the light admission qualities of glass windows, modern glass block walls offer optimal levels of both light and privacy for any interior or exterior application.
The world is taking notice of the beauty and practicality of today’s glass block products. According to a January 2018 article, Business Wire report, glass block sales are projected to grow at a 7% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) between 2018 and 2022.
