RE: Weight of Glass Block

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Roger and Jen,

Thanks for the information.  I didn’t even know where to look, but then again I didn’t look very hard.  I’ve only got a proposal out at the moment for this project, but parts are in the back of my mind.  The info. I had told me 18psf for 4” thick but that was all.


Thanks again,

Joe Grill

Does anybody have information on the weight of glass block for use in walls?  In particular 4” thick and 6” thick.
