Contraflam®an insulating, fire-resistant barrier
Contraflam® is a fire-resistant glass made from two or more sheets of toughened safety glass. The cavity between each is filled with a transparent gel – an intumescent interlayer – that reacts when exposed to fire. It forms an insulating barrier against the heat, absorbing the energy of the fire and acting as a heat shield.
Clear and UV-stable, Contraflam® can also be manufactured with optional bullet- and blast-resistance qualities, as well as solar, acoustic and privacy control options.
Contraflam® is suitable for frame, partition as well as internal or external door applications. A lighter version is also available – Contraflam® Lite – which is ideal for hull applications and internal or external partitions.
