Laminated glass panels: a game-changing innovation in safety glass
Chromatics developed its unique fire-resistant safety glass following extensive research and development. The result is a safety glass that is unique in the market and offers significant benefits over conventional toughened, tempered and laminated glass.
The glass was developed from a laminated mirror product, which comprised a thin glass veneer on a supporting board. Through testing and development, the product was adapted and refined to create Chromatics safety glass (Chromatics).
Unique laminated glass panels
Chromatics consists of a unique, durable and opaque colour coating that is applied to annealed glass and bonded to aluminium. The result is a laminate product that is the world’s first optically flat, shatterproof, thermally safe and impact-resistant safety glass that can be cut, edge-worked and drilled after processing. In 2018, Chromatics achieved the A2* fire certification – the highest rating possible for a laminate or composite product.
* Full rating: A2, s1, d0. This equates to little or no contribution to combustion or spread of flame (A); a laminate or composite material (2); little or no smoke production (s1); no burning or molten droplet formation (d0).
Proven performance – from fire-resistant cladding to curtain walling
In the 30 years since its development, Chromatics laminated glass panels have proved to be a safe and attractive material for a wide range of interior and external applications. These range from fire-resistant cladding, curtain walling and signage to balustrades, spandrels and rainscreen cladding.
Manufactured to perfection
Chromatics safety glass is produced on a modern, fully automated plant built by Klöpper Maschinentechnik of Dortmund, renowned manufacturers of glass manufacturing equipment for more than 80 years.
Ongoing innovation and development
The innovators at Chromatics continue to develop and refine the product. Its combination of colour, strength and resilience provides an attractive, safe and cost-effective solution for an ever-expanding range of applications.
