The 'Glass Whale' building in Bálna, Budapest, which features PYRAN® fire-resistant glazing


PYRAN® fire-resistant glazing is superior to conventional safety glass for a number of reasons. Made from borosilicate, it shows stronger resistance to a range of temperature differentials, which offers the potential for larger panes with longer fire resistance times and reduced fracturing.

Life-saving light transmission

PYRAN® glazing retains outstanding transparency in extreme temperatures. This can be vital in the event of a fire, when visibility is challenged, and can be a life-saver when evacuating a building. Meanwhile, high light transmission along with excellent color reproduction mean that security can still be combined with attractive aesthetics.
