This versatile product is also backed up by SCHOTT’s recently updated third party approved certification Certifire CF 862. With new drawings and new technical solutions included, SCHOTT is able to offer a broader scope, such as:

  • 120/120 glazing into steel screens
  • 90/90 IGUs into steel frames including IGUs
  • 90/90 glass to glass butt joints
  • Increased FD60 pane sizes
  • self-adhesive films can be applied to either glass side
  • plant on glazing beads to create Georgian type windows
  • hide frames below, behind or above finishes using angle/channel glazing
  • pin fixings in lieu of screws for 30/30 glazing beads

SCHOTT UK welcomes enquires from new and existing glass processing companies who have the equipment to handle and cut large glass sheets (2.1m x 3.1m). The stock thicknesses currently available are 11mm, 15mm and 23mm providing 60/0, 30/30 and 60/60 fire ratings.

The special-purpose PYRANOVA® fire-resistant glass was chosen in the expansion project of the the German National Library in Leipzig. The grand staircase and the museum’s reading room are now visually connected, while the public entrance is architecturally separated by a fire-retardant glass wall.

Background on the product:

SCHOTT PYRANOVA® specialty glass is a clear, laminated composite glass made of several thin panes of float glass. In the event of a fire, a transparent, fire resistant layer is created between the panes. This means that PYRANOVA® specialty glass prevents the passage of fire, smoke and heat radiation and ensures a safe escape route. This makes the material well-suited for use on escape routes and staircases.
