Acrylic block windows and shower walls in a bathroom

Introducing Glass’s Second Cousin, Acrylic

Acrylic block combines the beauty of glass block with a tough scratch-resistant acrylic plastic, making it considerably lighter than glass block. It is available in prefabricated window and door panels that are fully glazed. These acrylic block assemblies are held together by resilient polymer clips and encased in aluminum or vinyl frames. The window and door panels are easy to install with standard tools, and because acrylic block is installed without mortar, there’s no mess and fewer headaches. The blocks are available in three finishes: clear, patterned, and frosted. They come in standard 6-inch and 8-inch square sizes and 2- and 3-inch thicknesses. The block can be used for custom windows, door inserts, wall partitions, and curved shower enclosures.
