Our Process

The challenge with this project was to create one continuous glass block wall with a unique and varied pattern while keeping steel angle supports hidden. The wall also needed to ensure school safety and maintain fire rating standards. We collaborated with the architect and the structural engineer to ensure that the all of the details conformed to the manufacturer’s specifications.

  • Fire rated sealant
  • More than 3,800 pieces of glass block


“When we started working with GBA they took our design, enhanced the features and provided a world class product. We are already working on another resort with GBA and we look forward to many more to come.”

“GBA Products has a great group of people that back the product. From the jump, it was easy to get the information needed especially dealing with the difficulties of a Zero Lot Line Community. Made my job easy when GBA put together a proposed materials needed list together for me to help. When the opportunity arises again, I know I will not hesitate to reach out to this great team.”

“As a specialized mason, GBA was more knowledgeable and more professional in that genre of masonry than anyone else. Their staff was very professional and provided all required information in a timely fashion. The quality of work exceeded our expectations! They coordinated well in the field with the General Contractor and our foreman.”
