Advanced Cladding Systems
Designed with architects, designers and ultimately builders in mind, Glen-Gery’s Advanced Cladding Systems help to overcome limitations of space, time and budget while making installation easier and more efficient. Included within this collection are the Thin Tech Wall System, Tru-Brix Wall System and 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.
A brick face that glimmers, sparks immediate interest and which possesses great subtlety. Currently available in Platinum, Titanium and Cuprum colors. With its depth of color, the Metallix range reflects light on finished brickwork, creating a satin metallic sheen that will lend depth and sophistication to every project.
Venetian Glass is a range of brilliant, transparent, colored designer glass bricks inspired by the work of Venetian artisans. The collection features five colors – Arctic Crystal, Aqua Marine, Blue Sapphire, Golden Amber and Smokey Quartz – and four finishes – natural, frosted, polished and 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.
Thin brick is the pinnacle of form and function. With a striking appearance, its style is just as convincing as its strength. Whether for interior or exterior application, thin brick has the impact to stand as a centerpiece. The collection features over 100 color variations and is available in various sizes and thicknesses.
