Unique design and unrivalled fire protection with Lunax doors

Lunax, recently acquired by Vetrotech Saint-Gobain, is delighting architects throughout the UK. With the addition of this new solution, Vetrotech Saint-Gobain has enhanced its range of systems in line with the growing architectural trend of combining building transparency, design and high safety standards. Traditionally, form has followed function when it comes to fire protection – but Lunax has changed that. Incorporating versatile Contraflam safety glass and just four discreet clamps, its aesthetic appeal combines on-trend transparency with heightened fire safety. The development of Lunax has been driven by achieving not just fire protection, but beautiful aesthetics that maximise natural light, whilst integrating its four framing solutions. Doors can be customised with a large choice of handles, screen printing, coloured glass and many additional door accessories. Architects have the option to specify single, double or asymmetrical double doors - ideal for both new build and existing spaces. And as a building’s design affects the wellbeing of its occupants, architects are increasingly seeking to source products that address this. Crucially, Lunax doors are fire resistant on both sides.
