Yes, as follows:
Glass Block and Doors - 5 year limited warranty

installed with mortar is exempt from the safety glazing requirements of all
model building codes.
Can the glass block in the kits be installed with the KWiK'N EZ® Rigid
No - mortar only
What are the bases made of?
They are made of Lucite® XL cast acrylic. This high quality material resists
chipping and peeling. In the rare event the material scratches, polishing
will restore it back to the original shine. Color goes all the way through
What is special about the bases?
They are specially designed to accommodate glass block through molded
channels that serve as guides for block placement. Also, they are constructed
to support the extra weight of glass block walls.
