Angular bent ROBAX® panelsWhether installed as a room divider or a focal point, the fireplace is a central element of interior design. Fireplaces with large angular bent viewing-panels and little or no frame are particularly popular right now since the maximum view of the flames can be experienced from several sides, like a campfire.
For manufacturers, creating a modern frameless fireplace with an angular bent fire-viewing panel is a complex challenge, since most panels come with a standard bending edge. This has a slight curvature at the outlets of the edge, which has to be considered when installing the panel in both framed and frameless designs.
The IDEAL solutionFor the challenge of the multi-sided fireplace, SCHOTT offers a solution in the form of ROBAX® angular bent fire-viewing panels. Manufactured using a special bending process, the glass-ceramic panels have reduced curvature in the bending edge, making the edge much stronger, as well as offering maximum visibility of the fire from all sides. This IDEAL Bending Edge also makes SCHOTT angular bent panels easier to install and offers increased stability and breaking resistance.
