Security, Invisibly Installed

In this ­regard the glazing not only protects against fire, it also protects against violent impacts, such as burglary, explosion, or ballistic threats. With Contraflam Mega large indoor and outdoor glass dimensions can be implemented that extend to sizes of 2300 × 4600 mm. For example the glass was used for the interior facade of the Forbury Place office buil­ding in Reading, west of London. In addition to numerous system solutions in the facade area, the Contraflam Structure product is another patented all-glass solution for interiors. These are flush-mounted fire-resistant glass walls without vertical frame profiles.
