Glass fibre reinforced concrete: Its advantages and construction detail

Agnesa Iringová

SUMMARY

We live in a renaissance of glass blocks used in glass-covered external, roof and filling structures. The present structures are transparent with relatively high efficiency of diffused light transmission. Higher thermal insulation is considered to be the great advantage of the structures in comparison with so-called classic glass-covered structures. The striking advantage of them, however, is their fire resistance in contrast with common glass-covered structures.
