ALUMINIUM FRAMES:

The use of aluminium frames is critical for glass brick installation as they allow for the glass bricks to expand and contract independently of the surrounding structure. Because glass bricks are non structural, they need to be isolated from the surrounding structure. Ezylay glass brick frames also allow for your glass brick panel to be properly sealed to the surrounding structure and properly flashed in the same manner as an aluminium window.

  • Standard 38mm frame
  • Slimline 24mm frame
