Glass Blocks – Vetropieno
Description

The VetroPieno block is a 100% compact glass block which brings together the appeal of traditional blocks and the transparency and luminosity of glass.

Available in four versions: Neutral, Blue, Nordic and Siena, and provides a glass solution for decorating interiors and exteriors, focusing on the more artistic and expressive qualities of the material. The standard size and versatile shape allow it to be installed both horizontally and vertically for creating smooth surfaces, traditional designs or coloured light reflections.

The glass blocks are manufactured with clear sodium lime glass or coloured paste, are annealed and do not contain harmful substances. These structures are considered self-supporting and therefore do not play any structural role since they are only capable of safely sustaining their own weight together with the horizontal load generated by the wind and any perpendicular impact.

The technical, dimensional and aesthetic features meet the requirements of DIN 18175/77, EN 1051-1 and -2.

The glass blocks (in accordance with EN 1051-1) belong to Class 1, which is the highest quality level available.
