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.

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.
