The new building complex of the Southmead hospital comprises large-sized atriums and interior spaces, which, according to fire safety regulations, required fire-rated glazing applications. In collaboration with system partner Schüco Jansen, Vetrotech supplied their very own Pyroswiss fire-resistant glass, which resists fire for up to 30 minutes, thus building a physical barrier against flames, hot smoke and toxic gases. The glasses were supplied in various colors, which bring a warm and creative touch to the facility while marking the different departments within the hospital.
