SCHOTT PYRAN® Star

FIRE-RATED GLASS CERAMIC FROM THE WORLD LEADERS – NEED WE SAY MORE?

PYRAN® Star is a high quality floated glass-ceramic for fire-resistant glazing. As a UL-certified glass-ceramic PYRAN® Star meets the highest US standards for fire-resistance. This requires that the glass withstands thermal shock immediately following exposure to extremely high temperatures. In the test, the hot glass is blasted with cold water at very high pressures from a fire hose. PYRAN® Star offers fire protection up to 90 min in windows and 180 min in door systems. The composition of PYRAN® Star is stable and is not sensitive to exposure to UV light rays or heat. The glass-ceramic is also available as filmed (PYRAN® Star F) and laminated (PYRAN® Star L) to meet impact requirements.

UNIQUE SELLING POINTS

REMAINS TRANSPARENT IN FIRE CONDITIONS

This is extremely beneficial in critical fire-safety applications like doors, windows and partitions to facilitate human rescue from fire to non-fire side and also helps fire- rescue authorities judge the intensity of fire and plan rescue operations.

UP TO 180 MINUTE FIRE-PROTECTION

PYRAN® Star is tested for 180 minutes integrity, stability and protection against flames, hot gases and smoke as per BS476 Part 22.

UNLIMITED LIFE AND FIRE-PERFORMANCE WARRANTY

With no interlayers or coating, PYRAN® Star gets its fire-resistance from the unique borosilicate composition and lasts a lifetime. It never discolours or loses appearance over time and is unaffected by high ambient temperatures or UV rays, making it ideal for use in continuous high-temperature applications like furnace viewing and fireplaces.

ABILITY TO WITHSTAND HOSE STREAM TEST

PYRAN® Star glass-ceramic passes the hose stream test as per UL classification thanks to its superior strength and near-zero thermal expansion.

 

RESISTANCE TO CHEMICALS

Since PYRAN® Star is without any coating or interlayers, the resistance to chemicals like acids, alkalis and chlorine is extremely high. This is extremely critical in places with high chemical content in air like oil refineries, chemical factories and oil rigs.

MADE IN GERMANY. CUSTOMIZED IN INDIA.

PYRAN® Star is manufactured in Germany and shipped in customizable form to India for local processing. Giving you the best of both worlds: unbeatable quality with unbelievable service levels.

REUSABILITY

Under very minor fires that are extinguished within a few minutes, PYRAN® Star can potentially be reused; however, the glazing components might require change.

CAN BE LAMINATED FOR IMPACT RESISTANCE

PYRAN® Star glass-ceramic can be filmed (PYRAN® Star F) or laminated (PYRAN® Star L) for enhanced safety and impact resistance.
