The colors are unique and versatile, creating an architectural feel that will surely stand out on the block, available in Charter White, Pilot Gray and Jet Black colors.

A'22 EXHIBIT PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS (South Building - Level 3 - Booth 2339)
Venetian Glass Brick
From interior feature walls to exterior facades, Venetian glass bricks are shaped by Italian artisans and offer a natural centerpiece in any architectural landscape. The collection features four finishes - natural, frosted, polished or satin.
Featuring 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 features earthy tones coupled with European style.
Molded Brick and Custom Shapes
Design is in the details as Glen-Gery's molded 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 via the exterior corner, watertable, coping, bullnose, radial and custom shape options. The collection reflects Glen-Gery's commitment to new technology that increases customizable design while honoring artisanal brickmaking methods of the past.
No two handmade bricks look the same, which is why the Handmade Collection remains one of the most premium and sought-after brick products available. Variation and character are the result of handcrafted artisanship and are fundamental to this collection.
Designed with architects, designers and ultimately builders in mind, Glen-Gery's wall system products help to overcome limitations of space, time and budget while making installation easier and more efficient. Included within this collection is the popular Terraçade™ Façade System, a ceramic façade system designed and crafted to appeal to both creative and practical applications while complementing a range of architectural styles. The complete Terraçade collection is prefinished and colorfast, meaning it will look as vibrant in 100 years as it does upon installation.
