Exterior Design

Exterior heating adds comfort and atmosphere to an outdoor space, but it also raises safety and environmental concerns. SCHOTT NEXTREMA® is the ideal material for protective infrared heater covers, while ROBAX® has the durability and flexibility to create attractive windows for outdoor fireplaces.

Infrared Heaters

Optimized transmission in the infrared range, along with a range of design options make SCHOTT’s NEXTREMA® glass-ceramic ideal as infrared heater covers. Due to its non-porous surface and resistance to temperature changes, the glass-ceramic helps to warm those around it evenly and stylishly. NEXTREMA® also protects heating elements from impacts and contaminants in industrial applications such as drying and heating processes or food preparation.

Outdoor Fireplaces

In the past 40 years, over 100 million SCHOTT ROBAX® glass-ceramic fire viewing panels have been sold, making it one of the most popular protective glass-ceramics for outdoor fireplaces. The material offers clear visibility of the flames alongside exceptionally high thermal resistance of up to 760°C, with the fire-viewing panels available in flat, curved and angular bent shapes, incorporating specific designs on request.
