SCHOTT introduces the world's first specialty glass products to successfully withstand consecutive fire and ballistic attacks

SCHOTT introduces the world's first specialty glass products to successfully withstand consecutive fire and ballistic attacks at Counter Terror Expo. SCHOTT is to exhibit five glass panels of its PYRANOVA® secure laminates, showing varying degrees of attack, including bullet and fire separately and simultaneously.

The threat of wilful attack from both external forces and fire can be very real for a number of organisations, and therefore safeguarding employees, visitors and building contents of embassies, consulates and government buildings is paramount. "SCHOTT is leading the way in providing a glass laminate that can not only stop penetration by bullet, but then go on to also protect from fire directly afterwards or vice versa," explains Martin Brown, Sales Manager for SCHOTT UK.

To meet these unique demands, SCHOTT developed the highly effective, yet compact, multifunctional laminates. This type of complex structure is necessary in order to ensure that SCHOTT's new products are able to resist multiple simultaneous attacks, while offering a high level of transparency and thermal resistance.

To prove the effectiveness of its products, SCHOTT will display a series of five PYRANOVA® secure laminates. The 34 mm thick samples will be 1500 mm x 300 mm, weighing 78.5 kg/m². The glass laminates are bullet resistant according to EN1063: BR2NS and, even after having been shot at, can still fulfil the fire resistance category EI30. Both during and after a Molotov cocktail attack, SCHOTT's product is bullet resistant. Five scenarios are shown: original, shot at, burnt, shot at and burnt, burnt and shot at: "These demonstration laminates prove that the performance of our material fulfils several multi attack criteria and enables visitors to see the results close up," says Martin Brown.
