IBP (Innovative Building Products) has developed a glass block canopy application for their patented Glass Block Grid System. The Grid System provides simple, mortar-free installation of glass block into canopy structures in a variety of residential and commercial applications. This new application of the IBP Grid enables designers to specify a transparent canopy at significant savings over structural glass.
The new IBP glass block canopy utilizes the proven IBP aluminum grid that has been used for over 15 years to create glass block shower, floor, and window installations nationwide. The Grid canopy provides more protection from weather than a traditional cloth canopy and delivers critical natural light into the interior. This infusion of sunlight reduces the demand for artificial lighting, provides accurate color impressions, and creates a more pleasing interior environment.
The IBP canopy creates attention at night because any light from the store’s interior highlights the glass block. The canopy can be highlight from below with neon lights that can reproduce a company logo or any other design element desired.
There are several standard aluminum grid finishes and a myriad of glass block patterns and colors providing great design flexibility. IBP also offers custom powder coated colors to match the color used in the customer’s framing/ support system.
Installation is fast and trouble-free because the Grid System is installed without mortar. IBP’s technical department will provide free assistance in designing IBP glass block grid panels into your next canopy project.
