FACADE

Facade

Glazing in the facade can present a unique set of challenges – in addition to the building envelope’s solar, thermal, acoustic or other design requirements. The most important, on the one hand, is the prevention of fire spread from floor to floor, to adjacent buildings or areas of refuge. On the other hand, it’s important to address the security challenge of intrusion, bullet or blast incidents – especially in combination with fire-resistance.

PARTITIONS

Partitions

Glass makes for high-quality partition walls and creates elegant open spaces. Glass partitions fulfil the acoustic and privacy requirements that allow for an undisturbed, focused collaboration in a stimulating work environment – a perfect design solution for buildings of all kinds. By using transparent and versatile fire-resistant glass you can enhance beautiful interior spaces with the protection level you require.

FLOORS

Floors

Glazed floors are a striking design element and create a strong visual impact. They open up a whole new dimension by allowing daylight to deeply penetrate into building interiors. Fire-resistant glass floors prevent the transfer of heat and maintain their load-bearing properties in the event of fire. With our flexible and multifunctional life-safety glass products your floor can be customized to suit your wishes.

OVERHEAD

Overhead

Skylights and sloped glazing are in popular demand where natural light is used to create spacious and open architecture. At the same time the performance of such solutions must cover fire-resistance or resilience to threats from outside or inside the building to prevent their spread.

DOORS

DOORS

Glazed fire doors provide the aesthetical openness of ordinary door systems while protecting against threats like fire, smoke or physical attacks. Fire doors with anti-panic requirements may be equipped with high-security glass to reach RC classifications.

WINDOWS

Windows

We offer a range of glasses for life-safety windows that are resistant to fire, attack, bullet and blast. Windows often need to be openable, which can pose a risk when it comes to fire or security protection. Together with our system partners we offer solutions to face this threat anytime and anyplace.

 

BUILDING SEGMENTS

Access to natural light and to exterior space has been shown to make people feel more energetic, productive and inspired. We have developed the expertise and products to help you design and execute your next project according to the most stringent fire and security requirements, always keeping the occupants’ safety and the buildings’ performance in mind.
