PYROPANE / PYROBELITE/ PYROBEL
Kristian Neiko offers a range of thermally tempered Pyropane-coated products and a range of Pyrobelite and Pyrobel laminated glass to cover different levels of fire performance.
- Pyropane - it retains flames and gases for a short time, but it does not retain the radiated heat and it passes on the other side of the glass
- Pyrobel / Pyrobelite - retains flames and gases for a long time and prevents heat from flowing freely across the glass. This type of fire-resistant glass is known as laminated fire-resistant glass.
In case of fire, laminated fire-resistant glass consisting of transparent glass and transparent intermediate layers becomes a opaque barrier that holds fire and reduces or completely prevents heat waves from spreading.
Fire resistant glass provides various levels of protection, which are measured at intervals of 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120 and 180 minutes. The choice of glass depends on the level of protection required and the local legal requirements.
In the event of a fire, the laminated flame retardant glass consists of transparent inert intermediate layers that protect against flame and reduce or stop heat transmission.
Classes of fire-resistant glass
- "E" (30/60/90/120) - Provides a barrier against fire, hot gases and smoke.
- "EW" (30/60) - Provides a barrier against fire, hot gases, smoke and provides reduced passage of radiation energy from heat (heat transfer)
- "EI" (15/30/45/60/90/120) - Provides a barrier against fire, hot gases, smoke and completely limits the passage of radiation energy from the fire (heat transfer)
- "EXT or INT" - Classifies windows for interior or exterior use
