Work procedure:

  • Before starting construction, should prepare the base: the floor area on which is mounted a partition, free from the old flooring, remove the remnants of building materials and dust,then moisten with water in order to provide a better grip.
  • Next to the floor and wall markings applied.This should be done with the help of a spirit level.For greater stability of the partition walls can be proshtrobit a few centimeters, but the bathroom is not necessary.
  • On the prepared substrate is applied to the grout, over which is laid the first row of bricks.Try to make this number as much as possible even as it is the final result will depend on it.
  • During installation the following rows need to constantly ensure that the partition is not bulged forward and did not go wave.To control the "curvature" partitions, pull a cord, which rises for each subsequent row.
  • Stack grout should be two-centimetric layer.During masonry fill, not only horizontal but also vertical joints between the bricks.
  • not get carried away!Only one and a half meter walls can be laid out in one day (in height), otherwise the solution is not to gain a foothold, and the wall "lead."

What you need for the bathroom, devoid of natural light.Furthermore, glass blocks provide excellent soundproofing, not pass water and do not corrode.

Laying glass bricks in the bathroom

There are two ways to create partitions of glass blocks:

  • «Wet» method involves the use of tile adhesive or special glue for glass.Masonry is made almost the same as the installation of brick walls, but not glass blocks stacked in a checkerboard pattern, and one on drugoy.Bloki aligned relative to each other with plastic crosses, and to the floor, walls and ceiling - with the help of mortgages inwhich act as a hammer a nail.In one day you can lay no more than 5-6 units of rows.After the partition is constructed, allow it to the day that the adhesive is dried out, then it is necessary to overwrite the seams.
  • «Clean" method , as the name implies, involves less dirty work, so you can dispense with the adhesive solution.For adhesion of glass blocks used special modules made of aluminum, plastic or wood.These modules are attached to the walls and to the floor with screws, but with each other and with the glass blocks are held together by means of slots.Using a "clean" way, you can build any form of partition in the bathroom: a step, with recesses, etc.
