GLASS&SEALEDUNITS Enabling UK glass processors to efficiently meet local demand »»SCHOTT PYRANOVA® INTEGRITY and insulation fire-resistant glass is being stocked for the first time at Schott UK in Stafford. With this step, Schott enables professional UK glass processors to quickly obtain quality products to meet their customers’ requirements. 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 wellsuited for use on escape routes and staircases. The special-purpose Pyranova® fire-resistant glass was chosen in the expansion project of 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. 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 is a leading international technology group in the areas of specialty glass and glassceramics.
