Together, the companies offer multifunctional, laminated and insulation glass types that are EN (European) and UL (Underwriter Laboratories) certified and deliver barrier times of up to 120 minutes. The portfolio includes high-performance glass types from SCHOTT, like PYRAN® and PYRANOVA®, and is ideally suited for facades and roof glazing due to the products’ stability upon exposure to UV-radiation, fluctuations in temperature and direct sunlight.
