Saint-Gobain Vetrotec: ultimate security combined with fire resistance

According to the company, other than fire resistance, this glass also offers protection against forced entry, without sacrificing the clear vision of the glass solution.

Saint-Gobain Vetrotech new Contraflam® Ultimax is described as fire resistant safety glass with improved forced entry resistance for interior application.
New Contraflam® Ultimax combines the proven Contraflam fire-resistance with security glass, offering protection against forced entry, without sacrificing the clear vision of the glass solution. For a highly effective security performance, a polycarbonate-glass-laminate gets added to the make-up of Contraflam fire resistant glass, creating built-in forced entry protection that eliminates the need for an extra pane of glass or an easy-to-damage film.
Meeting the standards of today’s personal and property protection, Contraflam® Ultimax is surprisingly thin and light, starting at 23mm of nominal glass thickness, weighing only 44kg/m2.
