,The most versatile solution for applications demanding maximum Fire-Resistive protection in the largest possible dimensions.
CONTRAFLAM in Niigata is a single or multi-chamber fire-resistive glass made of two or more sheets of toughened safety glass. The cavity between the glass sheets is sealed to be completely moisture-resistant, is then filled with an environmentally friendly, transparent and UV-stable intumescent interlayer that reacts when exposed to fire. The level of fire resistance required determines the number of sheets of toughened safety glass and interlayers included.
In the event of fire, it offers full heat insulation for the compartmentalization of fire. This product satisfies the highest demands of fire protection while offering robust handling and UV stability, with numerous configurations available.
  • Available in single, double, or triple glazing (IGU) 
  • Rated for full fire-resistance from 45 to 120 minutes 
  • Symmetrical 1(B)1 impact resistance (EN 12600)
  • Extended exposure time of 5,000 hours UV stability versus standard 2,000 hours 
  • Large variety of low-E and solar control coatings  
  • Exceptional U values (double glazing ≥ 0.9 W/m²K, triple glazing ≥ 0.5 W/m²) 
  • Available in large dimensions 
  • Moisture- and pressure-resistant edge sealing for extended durability 
  • Excellent acoustic insulation properties 
  • Many design and comfort options 
  • Manufactured locally for fast delivery and reduced CO2 emissions
  • Can serve as laminated safety glass  
  • Easy, secure handling and installation 
,Butt-joint fire-resistant glazing system for interior & exterior applications (under specific conditions)

Fire-rated glass plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety and protection of buildings during fire incidents. Three renowned manufacturers - AGC, VETROTECH, and Saint-Gobain - have successfully implemented fire-rated glass solutions in various projects, showcasing the high level of safety and performance they offer, Niigata.
1. AGC
Project: "The Shard" in London, UK
AGC supplied their Pyrobel range of fire-rated glass for this iconic skyscraper. The Shard stands tall as one of the tallest buildings in Europe, and AGC's fire-rated glass played a pivotal role in meeting the stringent safety regulations while maintaining an aesthetic appeal.
Project: "Marina Bay Sands" in Singapore
VETROTECH provided their CONTRAFLAM in Niigata range of fire-resistant glass for the Marina Bay Sands project. This integrated resort required top-notch fire protection measures without compromising on the panoramic views offered by its design. VETROTECH's solution ensured both safety and aesthetics were met with excellence.
3. Saint-Gobain (PILKINGTON)
Project: "One World Trade Center" in New York City, USA
Saint-Gobain's PILKINGTON brand supplied their Fire-resistant Glass range for One World Trade Center. This iconic structure demanded uncompromising safety standards due to its high-profile nature and significance as a symbol of resilience. The fire-rated glass provided by Saint-Gobain ensured optimal protection against potential fire hazards without obstructing the building's impressive architectural features.
