GBA Architectural Products + Services was started by Jeff Boesch in Medina, Ohio back in 1985. His initial focus was on installing residential glass block window projects in Northeastern Ohio. He was joined soon after by his brothers Steve and Chuck.  Because the three were committed to establishing a business built on a reputation known for quality workmanship, on-time completion, and fair pricing, GBA grew from servicing their initial local area to a national presence.

As their reputation and market share grew, GBA successfully launched a national distribution network of wholesalers for their glass block materials and ready to install, residential window panels. Unwilling to rest on their laurels, GBA continued its pursuit of sustained growth through offering their expertise and services to some of the nation’s largest architectural design firms and construction companies to secure their spot as the nation’s largest installer of glass block.

With a firm commitment to be a trusted resource of light penetrating surfaces to the architectural design and construction communities, GBA has continued to forge long-term, relationships with several other niche’ manufacturing companies to round out their product offering. Circle Redmont’s walkable glass products and GBA’s recently completed acquisition of IBP’s GlassWalk product-line complements GBA’s existing business nicely. Likewise, Trespa’s HPL cladding products have been another welcomed addition.

Continuing with their 35-year legacy of successful projects, GBA has grown from its humble beginnings to a world class operation through honoring their commitment to treat every customer like it was their only customer.

"As a specialized contractor, GBA was more knowledgeable and more professional in the genre than anyone else. Their staff was very professional and provided all required information in a timely fashion. The quality of work exceeded our expectations! They coordinated well in the field with the General Contractor and our foreman."

GlassWalk™ Structural Glass Floors

GlassWalk™ structural glass floor systems are one of many walkable glass flooring options provided by GBA Architectural Products + Services.  They can be incorporated into interior and exterior designs where there is a desire to maximize the amount of natural light pouring into any space.  The glass can be 2-ply or 3-ply with traction control frit patterns on the top surface of the glass.  Aluminum framing support is made of lightweight material which does not interfere with the glass design.  Furthermore, LED lights can be added underneath to the perimeter of the glass to elevate any interior glass walkway idea.  

GlassWalk™ Stair Treads

Glass stair treads are a unique way to incorporate the use of structural glass flooring into a home or office.
