Commercial glass block windows have been used for many reasons – but a driving force in many projects is increasing security and reducing the chance of break-ins or vandalism. When Dean Strasser got the entrepreneurial bug and decided to open 45 Degree Cycles (a motorcycle sales and repair business) at 1748 E. Livingston Rd. in Columbus Ohio he knew he would need to transform the graffiti filled walls and boarded up windows with products that would not only be stylish and inviting to his customers – but also would be secure against intruders gaining entry to the building at off business hours. These objectives led him to use glass block windows.
