Can I use glass block as pavers?

You cannot use glass blocks as pavers, but there are glass “bricks” that can be used as pavers. The Vistabrik Glass Brick Pavers are a solid 1.5" glass block for commercial and residential use. These Vistabrik Pavers are solid glass bricks that can be used for paths, accents, and with a grid system, for floors.
