Today Vetrotech Saint-Gobain, specialists in high performance fire-resistant and protect glazing solutions, announces that it has acquired Lunax bvba, a Belgian company that’s specialist in frameless fully-glazed fire-doors. With the addition of these niche solutions, Vetrotech Saint-Gobain now enhances its range of systems to respond to the growing architectural trend of building transparency combined with design and safety solutions.
The Lunax door exclusively uses Vetrotech’s versatile and multifunctional CONTRAFLAM fire resistant safety glass. Since its introduction in 2012, a number of project have been completed throughout Europe and abroad over a growing network of authorised installers. In line with the Saint-Gobain strategy, this acquisition will allow Vetrotech Saint-Gobain to develop its portfolio of innovative systems and to expand into new segments and territories. Vetrotech Saint-Gobain is then looking forward to expanding the network of authorised installers and partners across Europe, and the world, as they widen the range of Lunax solutions and add more functions.
The innovative Lunax system is a double-acting fire-door, fire-resistant on either side, which consists of a maximised glazed surface with only four discreet door clamps. It contributes to creating a transparent, bright and contemporary interior with a strong sense of space. Thanks to the broad capabilities of the Saint-Gobain Group, the Lunax door can be customised on demand. It allows the architect to design fully-glazed partitions with minimum framing elements. Unlimited choice of handles, possibility of screen printing, coloured glass and many additional decorative options enable architects or building owners to express their creativity. The Lunax system meets E, EW and EI classifications for both 30 and 60 minutes fire-resistance.
