A’22 EXHIBITION PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS (South Building – Level 3 – Stand 2339)
Venetian Glass Brick
From interior walls to exterior facades, Venetian glass bricks are fashioned by Italian craftsmen and are a natural focal point in any architectural landscape. The collection has four finishes – natural, matte, polished or satin.
With a length longer than any brick made in North America, the Roman Maximus evokes feelings of sophistication, exclusivity and prestige, inspired by the grandiose buildings of the Romans. The collection contains earth tones in combination with a European style.
Cast Brick and Custom Shapes
Design is in the details, as Glen-Gery’s cast brick offers irregularly softened edges to build character and a sense of timelessness. Depending on the need of the project, customizable shapes are available to provide further specialization through the outside corner, water table, coping, bullnose, radial and custom shape options. The collection reflects Glen-Gery’s commitment to new technology that enhances adaptable design while honoring artisanal stone-making methods of the past.
No two handmade bricks look the same, which is why the Handmade Collection remains one of the most high-quality and sought-after brick products available. Variation and character are the result of handmade craftsmanship and are fundamental to this collection.
Designed with architects, designers and ultimately builders in mind, Glen-Gery’s wall system products help overcome the constraints of space, time and budget, while making installation easier and more efficient. This collection includes the popular Terraçade™ Façade System, a ceramic façade system designed and manufactured to appeal to both creative and practical applications, while complementing a range of architectural styles. The complete Terraçade collection is ready-to-use and colourfast, meaning it will look just as vibrant in 100 years as when installed.
