Glass Block Solar Wall Tubes

Seves Glass Block Solar Wall Tubes are an easy and aesthetically pleasing way to let light into a building that is built with multi-wythe masonry walls. The Solar Wall Tubes from Seves Glass Block Inc replace standard masonry units and allow light transmission. Daylighting is increasingly important in buildings today. The more daylight that enters a room, the less energy needed by the electrical systems in the building. Daylighting also has a positive effect on mood, atmosphere, and productivity.

Superior Thermal Performance

Solar Wall Tubes from Seves Glass Block Inc. are available in various sizes with your choice of privacy levels. They are thermally broken and thus provide improved thermal performance. They are easy to install and are self-supporting when installed in a running bond wall. Do not install in stack bond CMU walls unless a lintel or bond beam is provided.

Solar Wall Tubes are available in 8"and 16" modules in various depths to meet wall thickness requirements.

Maximum Daylighting

Solar Wall Tubes are perfect for commercial building walls where you want to bring in natural light without compromising the masonry look and feel of the building. Seves Glass Block Solar Wall Tubes mirror-like finish magnifies and reflects the light and solves many design issues related to single or double glass block installations in multi- wythe wall construction.
