Connecting panels 3. Wall panels cannot be used for horizontal applications like roof lights. For example : • Glass blocks are not load bearing. See the full selection of glass block sizes. Interlocking panels 4.glassblocks.PREFABRICATED WALL PANELS La Rochere produce precast glass block wall panels that can be used internally and externally. The panels are manufactured in a white mortar under factory controlled conditions.uk/floorpanels La Rochere produce four types of precast wall panels : 1. these dimensions should always be a minimum of at least 10mm larger at each end of the panel to allow for the expansion fibre. see Section 8 : Floor Pavers or visit www. for example : EXAMPLE OF MINIMUM OPENING SIZE BASED ON A STANDARD PRECAST PANEL REF. colours and patterns available in Section 2 of the binder. 35 190mm glass block x 5 : 10mm joints x 4 : 40mm perimeter border x 2 : 10mm expansion joints x 2 : Minimum opening dimension (mm): 950 40 80 20 1090 2 . Standard size panels 2. the golden rules of glass block installation still apply. Glass Block Technology do have a range of precast floor pavers / roof lights. Precast wall panels offer many benefits : • Uniformity of joints • Modular dry fix panels • Ease and speed of installation • Standard size panels • The advantages of quality control Panels can only be produced incorporating glass blocks from the La Rochere range.co. Standard size panel Precast connecting panel NOTES RELATING TO ALL FOUR TYPES OF PRECAST WALL PANELS : Even though the glass block panels are precast concrete. Bespoke panels to suit individual projects. See precast wall panel data sheets • Glass block panels need to be weather proofed Precast interlocking panel CALCULATING OPENING SIZES AND EXPANSION JOINTS To calculate the minimum opening size. a lintel should be incorporated • Expansion fibre should be incorporated.

Glass Block Technology can provide Precast panel matching mortar. SPECIFICATION Connecting panels are produced with 190x190x80 glass blocks with 10mm joints and a 40mm perimeter border. Precast connecting panel Shown illustrated below are two examples of how connecting panels work : (Ref 34) (Ref 44) (Ref 34) 10mm joints to be executed on site Vertical joint based on three standard panels (Ref 34) minus one edge of the perimeter border and one standard panel (Ref 44) minus two edges of the perimeter border. WEIGHT The weight of each panel is the same as the standard panels detailed minus the weight of either one or two of the perimeter borders. Refer to datasheet GBT/0024 for installation systems. 4 .PREFABRICATED WALL PANELS CONNECTING PANELS Connecting panels are made to order with the elimination of either one or two borders as the photo opposite shows. the connecting joint should be 10mm. Horizontal joint based on two standard panels (Ref 45) When the panels are being installed on site. so all the horizontal and vertical joints modulate.
