Our Vetrotech Saint-Gobain Range
Performance Glass Processing is an official stockist of Vetrotech Saint Gobain glass. We supply a variety of different types of glass including – Contraflam, Contraflam Lite, Contraflam Structure and Pyroswiss.
Pyroswiss is part of the fire resistant PROTECT range. It is a cost-effective tempered glass – made extra tough thanks to a process called heat soak testing.
It is thinner than other comparable products and is the first product of its kind to offer impact safety as well as supreme fire resistance.
Pyroswiss is a strong and effective barrier against flames, smoke and toxic gases. The glass also remains clear in the event of fire, enabling the emergency services to locate the source of the fire, or people trapped inside the building.
It has multiple applications: partitions, windows, escape routes, single and double doors, as well as creating an effective barrier against smoke. This is particularly valuable in areas where fire can cause panic, such as shopping centres and train stations.
We can supply Pyroswiss in various thicknesses depending on the requirements – ranging from 6mm to 15mm. We can supply the glass either single glazed or in a toughened laminate combination which is suitable as overhead glazing and floors.
Contraflam offers the most advanced safety glass features together with a high degree of flexibility.
Contraflam provides very effective radiant heat reduction for between 30 and 120 minutes, Contraflam® contains an interlayer that becomes opaque in the event of a fire and acts as a heat shield. This feature minimises panic by creating a physical visual barrier between people and the fire. It has a wide variety of uses and can be used for doors, partitioning, staircases, façades or skylights, and is available in many variants such as Contraflam Lite, and Contraflam Structure.
