CONTRAFLAM® provides fire safety assurance


A stunning glass atrium in an £85 million extension to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) has been created using CONTRAFLAM® fully insulating clear, fire-resistant safety glass manufactured by GLASSOLUTIONS Saint-Gobain.


The fire rated glass atrium provides protection from the first floor through to the roof level, and helps to create a light and spacious area.


Manufactured by GLASSOLUTIONS, in conjunction with sister-company Vetrotech, at their dedicated Coventry production facility, two formats of CONTRAFLAM were supplied: 1,500m2 of EI30 CONTRAFLAM (30 minute integrity and insulation) in screens within the main atrium and 250m2 of EI60 CONTRAFLAM (60 minutes integrity and insulation) in screens on the ground floor areas.


In addition to the CONTRAFLAM glazing, GLASSOLUTIONS also supplied designed, manufactured and installed five rooflights, one of which is used in the roof of the atrium, utilising SGG COOL-LITE® solar control glass.
