PYRAN® Platinum is a fire-rated glass-ceramic that prevents the spread of fire, hot gases and smoke, now also the largest.

PYRAN® Platinum – the most innovative fire-rated glass ceramic in the industry is now also the largest. At 51 x 99 inches, the new PYRAN® Platinum  sheet size enables to realize projects that were previously impossible.
PYRAN® Platinum is produced using SCHOTT´s unique Microfloat process. The hot molten glass ribbon is floated on an inert bed of liquid tin and is allowed to cool slowly without any mechanical contact that could blemish the smooth surface. The result is PYRAN® Platinum’s smooth, distortion-free mirror finish.
PYRAN® Platinum is clear and colourless, without the distracting amber tint associated with competitive fire-rated glass-ceramics. The neutral colour allows PYRAN® Platinum to blend in with the surrounding architecture of the building.
PYRAN® Platinum is a fire-rated glass-ceramic that prevents the spread of fire, hot gases and smoke. Even under high thermal loads, the glazing stays transparent, ensuring that the burning building can be safely evacuated.
PYRAN® Platinum fire-rated glass-ceramics are certified by Underwriters Laboratories for fire-protection ratings up to 90 minutes in windows and 180 minutes in doors. For safety-rated applications, filmed (PYRAN® Platinum F) and laminated (PYRAN® Platinum L) versions are available.
