That size would suit 1 full and 1 half glass brick wide x 10 glass bricks high if they were laid in mortar. The ideal size is 310 wide x 2010 high but you can squeeze the joints down a little to make up 5mm. The steel reinforcing rods go in every 2nd course and you need to drill holes into the existing timber frame to accommodate them. Best to use either Solaris Wolke or Mulia Wave as the Vetro Arredo DO is almost impossible to replace if a glass brick gets damaged once laid. Good Luck!
