Overview: The IBP (Innovative Building Products) Glass Block Grid System sets real glass block in a precision engineered, custom-manufactured aluminum grid. IBP accents are easy to handle and install--usually in about the same time as their conventional glass-pane counterparts. IBP installations deliver not only light but many other benefits as well. The IBP Glass Block Grid System, unlike mortar installations, allows both for building movement and for expansion/contraction of glass block and surrounding materials. The result is a glass block installation that retains its beauty and integrity over time.
The exciting new Fast Track Stone masonry support system can transform a basic building into a structure of elegance and warmth, as well as economy. Unlike conventional stone-veneer finishes, Fast Track Stone does not require a concrete footing to support the weight of the masonry. This feature alone can yield considerable savings.
The system weighs as little as 14 pounds per square foot. It is easily designed into new projects using conventional construction techniques or attaches to most structures using existing wall studs.
Fast Track Stone can help builders achieve LEED objectives. Aluminum channels and clips have at least 25% post-consumer recycled content, and the entire system can be dismantled and re-purposed as the building's uses change over its life cycle.
Premium Masonry Panels
Lightweight cast-stone panels are available as well. Please ask your representative for a current list of masonry panels compatible with Fast Track Stone.
Standard nominal sizes for Fast Track Stone panels are 16" x 24" and 8" x 24". Custom sizes may be available by special order. Please ask your local representative for the most up-to-date selection.

Glass block adds drama to any shower enclosure. In adapting the grid system for shower enclosures, IBP's design team has developed a number of features that allow easy attachment to a standard shower curb using standard construction methods.
The patented IBP grid enhances the appearance of glass block windows and wall installations. It assures a proper, uniformly spaced glass block installation without using the time-consuming method of mortar and spacers.
The IBP Grids incorporated into canopy and awning structures enables designers to maximize daylight while providing protection against the elements. By utilizing IBP Grids in canopy or awning projects you can create dynamic, functional structures that harness natural light and at night allow artificial light to flow freely through, illuminating the pedestrian walk spaces below.
