The secret ingredient to fireplace efficiency and new design

Fireplaces and woodstoves keep many houses warm in the winter, but sometimes they get too hot. Surrounding furniture, carpeting, and curtains start to heat up and homeowners can quickly go from cozy to sweating.

The trick is to engineer a way to gain all the benefits of the fire – the warmth, the views of the flames, the centerpiece for a room – while containing the right amount of heat in the firebox. That not only keeps the temperature comfortable, but also ups the efficiency and opens new design possibilities for fireplaces and woodstoves.

And it all starts with glass-ceramic. Here’s how SCHOTT’s new ROBAX® IR Max glass-ceramic can keep fires cozy.
