COPERNICUS SCIENCE CENTER WARSAW
The new building, namely the Copernican Revolution Lab joined the building complex in 2022. It is an interdisciplinary research laboratory, a creative space, a place of cooperation, meetings, and debates.
The construction of the project began in August 2020. The large part of internal partitions is made of fire resistive EI30 glass: CONTRAFLAM STRUCTURE ELEGANCE.
The designer of the facility - Heinle, Wischer und Partner Architects, made a thorough analysis of the possibilities of glazing fire resistive partitions and chose the flush butt-joint glazing solution without vertical frame profiles CONTRAFLAM STRUCTURE ELEGANCE.
A very narrow seamless connection ensures maximum access of daylight to the rooms. This solution provides an uncompromised fire resistance for up to 30 minutes.
This achievement reflects Vetrotech Saint-Gobain's true expertise in providing the highest levels of fire protection glazing solutions, without compromising the design and comfort of building users.
