AND BLOCK HEAT TRANSFER
Contraflam®, first introduced in North America in 1984, is a fire resistant glass with one or more chambers of tempered safety glass and sealed to be completely moisture resistant. The chambers are filled with an environmentally friendly and transparent chemical mixture based on UV stable alkali silicate which reacts in the event of fire. This intumescent middle layer expands as an opaque foam, limiting heat transmission and reducing panic by blocking the view of the affected areas.
- Impact safety rating (CPSC 16CFR 1201 Cat. II; EN 12600)
- Easy and safe handling and installation
- Excellent sound insulation properties
- UL listed up to 180 minutes and available for the following protections: 60, 90, 120 and 180 minutes.
