BLOCK LOCK system
Block Lock is a simple and at the same time revolutionary system of glass block wall construction. This system uses PVC profiles that are placed around the perimeter and in the horizontal and vertical joints between the glass blocks. The glass blocks are glued to the profiles with a special adhesive (mastic). Thanks to the use of Block Lock we save time and money, even without previous experience in building a glass block wall – simply and quickly!
The advantages it offers are:
CE certification: it is the only glass block installation system that is CE certified. This way we overcome the lack of experience of installation crews and at the same time we avoid improvisations and “inventions” to which non-qualified crews resort.
Fire reaction certification: Bs-1, d0
Speed: We can fit 1m² in 30 minutes.
Cleanliness: This is a dry building system in which we do not use cement mortar, but a special mastic applied like silicone.
Convenience: No special knowledge is required and so the installation can be done by non-skilled craftsmen, by tile laying crews and even by private individuals in their spare time.
The special mastic sticks to almost any surface.
No perimeter frame is required.
No screwing to the wall is necessary.
No need for additional reinforcement reinforcement inside the joints.
Grouting is done with ordinary grout and not with silicone as in similar systems that existed in the past.
More light: The joints are only 5mm thick.
The joints are only a few millimetres thick: As the joint is only 5mm the glass block wall appears as a large single glass surface.
Also, the 5mm joint is quite prevalent in tiles and so the joint formed by BLOCK LOCK comes as a continuation of the tile joints, resulting in a continuity and uniformity in the whole space.
Better thermal insulation: the plastic profile offers better thermal insulation than the usual cement mortar
Elasticity: Glass block walls built with the BLOCK LOCK system have the ability to absorb vibrations and movements (e.g. from minor subsidence)
Prefabrication: In case we do not have access from the outside of the building we can prefabricate a glass block wall and install it ready-made in the opening.
Suitable for glass blocks of all factories that have CE certification
Possibility of fitting fittings in the joints: e.g. shower cubicle door, with direct screwing into the joint profiles.
WARRANTY: The special welding mastic is guaranteed for 35 years, is environmentally friendly and does not emit toxic odours unlike similar products from other companies. The special mounting profiles are frost resistant. Walls built with BLOCK LOCK are tested and certified in linear load, impact with non-rigid bodies and resistance to evenly distributed load.
