The most tested fire rated glass in todays market. Due to its high flatness and clear gel, it is hardly distinguished from ordinary laminated glass. The distribution through fixed processors, our stockists, provides unprecedented delivery times.

Pyropane remains transparent in all circumstances. This slim toughened glazing meets the criteria for 'integrity' (E30). By adding a coating, Pyropane can meet the criterion of 'integrity and limited radiation' (EW30 and EW60). The coated glass acts as a heat shield and reflects the radiation to the fire side.
Quote Architect: 'We needed for the st. Lucas College maximum transparency and wanted to emphasize the vertical lines in the building. Extra high Pyropane panes made this possible.'
