Fireplaces and Heating

SCHOTT’s experience and expertise in glass and glass-ceramics helps us to combine customizability and attractive esthetics in modern fireplaces, boilers and heating systems.


SCHOTT offers highly effective and esthetically stunning features for fireplaces, with SCHOTT ROBAX® glass-ceramic the ideal material for maintaining safety while offering optimum visibility. With near-zero thermal expansion, SCHOTT ROBAX® fire viewing panels offer complete protection against flying sparks and smoke, providing exceptional safety for the home. A fireplace with a glass-ceramic panel also reaches much higher temperatures, allowing wood to burn in a more efficient and eco-friendly way.

Infrared Heaters

Advanced design options for infrared heaters include SCHOTT NEXTREMA®. The glass-ceramic is particularly suited for outdoor heaters due to its heat and temperature shock resistance, as well as its corrosion- and weather-resistant surface. NEXTREMA® also reduces the bright glare that can be an issue with conventional IR heaters. Different transmission profiles enable manufacturers to tailor their device to meet different designs and specifications.

Modern heating systems benefit from SCHOTT glass fronts for radiators and wall heaters

Heaters and Boilers

As a global leader in processed glass, SCHOTT’s expertise naturally lends itself to customized glass fronts for modern heating systems. Whether it’s boilers with glass panels that feature touch control, display elements, and customized printing, or heaters with their heating circuits printed directly onto the glass, we understand the need for reliability, durability, and the opportunity to add your own design and branding features.
