SCHOTT enables 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.
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.
