Gridlock™ Snap-In Glass Block System: A Lock on Ease of Maintenance and Durability

Our patented Gridlock System is specifically designed for interior, windscreen and partition use. This glass block wall is perfect for transit authorities. Not thermally-broken, this system combines virtually unbreakable 2" thick glass specially designed to "snap" into the aluminum frame. Easy to install and maintain, and extremely graffiti resistant, it is an ideal solution for partition, transit shelter or other outdoor applications. A simple pressure wash is all you need. Should a block break, you are not required to replace the entire wall. Simply remove the broken block and snap in another. It's that easy!
