The special-purpose PYRANOVA® fire-resistant glass was chosen in the expansion project of the the German National Library in Leipzig. The grand staircase and the museum’s reading room are now visually connected, while the public entrance is architecturally separated by a fire-retardant glass wall.

Background on the product:
SCHOTT PYRANOVA® specialty glass is a clear, laminated composite glass made of several thin panes of ?oat glass. In the event of a ?re, a transparent, ?re resistant layer is created between the panes. This means that PYRANOVA® specialty glass prevents the passage of ?re, smoke and heat radiation and ensures a safe escape route. This makes the material well-suited for use on escape routes and staircases.
