Vetrotech Saint-Gobain acquires the fully-glazed fire-door company Lunax

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.

I am very proud to announce this acquisition as it opens up new business opportunities. We have noticed a strong trend to minimise framing elements and maximise transparency as evidenced by the high interest of architects and designers in this product. The uniqueness of the Lunax door will create value to our customers and partners, as it enables fire doors to be completely integrated into the design aesthetic.
Guillaume Le Gavrian CEO Vetrotech Saint-Gobain

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.
