Glass Block Transparency Guide


The type of finish and texture of the glass block you choose can affect the level of privacy offered by your glass block feature, an important consideration in many areas of the home.

If privacy is not an issue and you are looking for a glass block which can create an interesting light effect whilst retaining high visibility select one of the blocks with a high level of transparency such as (Clear or Wavy)

Where more privacy is required, for instance in the bathroom or shower, or for exterior walls, use a block that obscures visibility to a greater degree such as such as Sponge, Savona, Arctic, Paralline or Samba
