PYRAN® Platinum

At a glance

The new 51 x 99 inch PYRAN® Platinum sheet size lets you realize projects that were previously impossible. For years architects have appreciated the smooth surface, neutral color and proven technical performance of PYRAN® Platinum - the world's first and only floated glass-ceramic.
 

Largest sheet size

PYRAN® Platinum - The most innovative fire-rated glass-ceramic in the industry is now also the largest. At 51 x 99 inches, the new PYRAN® Platinum sheet size lets you realize projects that were previously impossible.
 

Smooth surface

PYRAN® Platinum is produced using SCHOTT´s unique Microfloat process. The hot molten glass ribbon is floated on an inert bed of liquid tin and is allowed to cool slowly without any mechanical contact that could blemish the smooth surface. The result is PYRAN® Platinum's smooth, distortion-free mirror finish.
 

Neutral color

PYRAN® Platinum is clear and colorless, without the distracting amber tint associated with competitive fire-rated glass-ceramics. The neutral color allows PYRAN® Platinum to blend in with the surrounding architecture of the building.

Products

PYRAN® Platinum is a fire-rated glass-ceramic that prevents the spread of fire, hot gases and smoke. Even under high thermal loads, the glazing stays transparent, ensuring that the burning building can be safely evacuated.
PYRAN® Platinum fire-rated glass-ceramics are certified by Underwriters Laboratories for fire-protection ratings up to 90 minutes in windows and 180 minutes in doors. For safety-rated applications, filmed and laminated versions are available.

Areas of application

Fire Door Lites

  • A Fire Door is the door component of a fire door assembly, that together with the frame, hardware and other accessories provide a specific degree of fire protection to the opening. Fire Doors are tested according to NFPA 252 or UL 10B or UL 10C and installed according to NFPA 80.
  • PYRAN® Platinum fire-rated glazing installed as vision panels in Fire Doors provides a clear view for occupants exiting the building in an emergency.
  • For Fire Door Lites installed in areas subject to human impact, PYRAN® Platinum F and PYRAN® Platinum L meet CPSC 16 CFR 1201 impact requirements.
  • PYRAN® Platinum in Fire Door Lites passes the required hose stream test and is fire-rated up to 180 minutes. It is permanently labeled D-H-90 or D-H-180.

Fire Window Glazing

  • Fire Windows are constructed and glazed to give protection against the passage of fire. Fire Windows are tested according to NFPA 257 or UL 9 and installed according to NFPA 80.
  • PYRAN® Platinum fire-rated glazing installed in Fire Windows remains clear during a fire and provides a clear view for occupants exiting the building in an emergency.
  • For Fire Windows installed in areas subject to human impact, PYRAN® Platinum F and PYRAN® Platinum L meet CPSC 16 CFR 1201 impact requirements.
  • PYRAN® Platinum in Fire Windows passes the required hose stream test and is fire-rated up to 90 minutes. It is permanently labeled OH-90.

Transoms, Sidelites and Borrowed Lites

  • Transoms and Sidelites are smaller glazed windows that may surround the Fire Door. Borrowed Lites are installed in interior walls to allow light from an adjacent room. Transoms, Sidelites and Borrowed Lites in Fire Rated walls are constructed and glazed to give protection against the passage of fire. These three special windows are tested as Fire Windows according to NFPA 257 or UL 9 and installed according to NFPA 80.
  • PYRAN® Platinum fire-rated glazing installed in Fire Windows remains clear during a fire and provides a clear view for occupants exiting the building in an emergency.
  • For Fire Windows installed in areas subject to human impact, PYRAN® Platinum F and PYRAN® Platinum L meet CPSC 16 CFR 1201 impact requirements.
  • PYRAN® Platinum in Fire Windows, including Transoms, Sidelites and Borrowed Lites passes the required hose stream test and is fire-rated up to 90 minutes. It is permanently labeled OH-90.

Environmentally Friendly

Material Toxicity & Recyclabilty

PYRAN® Platinum glass-ceramic is produced at SCHOTT Technical Glass Solutions GmbH (SCHOTT TGS) in Jena, Germany. SCHOTT TGS cares for the environment in manufacturing and distributing PYRAN® Platinum. Highlights of our commitment to the environment regarding materials, recyclability and social responsibility are as follows:

Raw Materials
  • All incoming raw materials must meet strict tolerances for contamination
  • The handling and processing of raw materials in the batch house are engineered such that worker exposure is extremely limited
  • PYRAN® Platinum glass-ceramic is manufactured without hazardous heavy metals antimony or arsenic, which are normally used as refining agents. We are not contributing to the mining, transportation and continued demand of these toxic heavy metals.
Recyclability
  • In our PYRAN® Platinum glass-ceramic production facility, SCHOTT TGS in Jena, Germany, we currently recycle all of our internal cut-off and scrap material as cullet in our glass melts. The melt tank uses 40 to 50 % cullet.
  • SCHOTT is committed to the conservation of natural resources and to reducing the amount of glass waste in landfills. Recycling glass-ceramic is not as simple as recycling consumer glass products due to the high heat input required for remelting. Therefore no public programs exist for local recycling of glass-ceramic in the United States. To minimize the amount of glass-ceramic in landfills in North America, SCHOTT launched a recycling program in summer 2010 to take back drops and unused material from our North American warehouse and from all PYRAN® glass-ceramic fabricators in North America to be re-used as cullet in the manufacturing process.
  • PYRAN® Platinum is permanently labeled and recyclable at the end of the product life.
