HIGHLIGHTS OF THE A’22 EXHIBITION PRODUCTS (South Building – Level 3 – Booth 2339)
Venetian glass brick
From interior walls to exterior facades, Venetian glass blocks are shaped by Italian artisans and provide a natural centerpiece in any architectural landscape. The collection has four finishes – natural, frosted, polished or satin.
Featuring a longer length than any brick made in North America, the Roman Maximus evokes feelings of sophistication, exclusivity and prestige inspired by the grand buildings of the Romans. The collection features earthy tones paired with European flair.
Molded brick and custom shapes
The design is in the details as Glen-Gery molded brick offers irregularly softened edges to create character and a sense of timelessness. Depending on the needs of the project, customizable shapes are available to provide additional specialization via outside corner, water table, crowning, rounded nose, radial and custom shape options. The collection reflects Glen-Gery’s commitment to new technologies that augment customizable design while honoring the artisanal brickmaking methods of the past.
No two handmade bricks are alike, which is why the Handmade collection remains one of the most premium and sought-after brick products available. Variation and character are the result of artisan craftsmanship and are fundamental to this collection.
Designed for architects, designers and ultimately builders, Glen-Gery’s wall system products help overcome space, time and budget limitations while making installation easier and more efficient. This collection includes the popular Terraçade™ facade system, a ceramic facade system designed and manufactured to appeal to both creative and practical applications while complementing a range of architectural styles. The entire Terracade collection is prefinished and colorfast, meaning it will look as vibrant 100 years from now as it did when it was installed.
