PYRAN is far superior to the traditional types of glass used in fire resistant glass. The secret lies in the interaction between the material and the production process. Manufactured in a micro float facility, which is unique within the world, the fire resistant properties of the special float glass surpass those of soda lime glass by far. The unique combination of borosilicate glass and the float process result in the special glass types PYRAN S, PYRAN white and PYRAN G with outstanding properties. PYRAN Platinum is the worlds only floated glass ceramic. With its UL certification, PYRAN Platinum is able to fulfill even the highest standards for fire resistant glazing in ac - cordance with US norms. As a component in a wide variety of end products, it has a long record of proven performance in fire resistant glazing that meet the requirements of fire resistance classes E 30 to E 120 or EW 30 and EW 60 in a wide range of buildings. The well-known Swiss Federal Institute of Sports in Magglingen represents an impressive example of PYRAN s applica - tion. Here and in many other buildings, PYRAN guarantees safety, multifunctionality and aesthetics. Function Fire resistant glazing with PYRAN protects against the spread of fire, hot gases and smoke. Even under high thermal loads, the glazing stays transparent, ensuring that the burn - ing building can be safely evacuated.
