Transparent glass ceramic for fireplaces and stoves.
SCHOTT is one of the leading manufacturers in the field of heat-resistant transparent materials. At Perth Art Glass we distribute SCHOTT ROBAX® whose name is a byword for innovative quality, and is practically synonymous with the sense of warmth and security only a real stove can provide. ROBAX® fireplace panels guarantee a genuine fireside experience. They make it possible to see the fire clearly and get up close to it, yet remain completely protected from flying sparks. SCHOTT ROBAX® gives you a feeling of warmth and safety every day.
ROBAX® glass is extremely heat resistant, robust and features and incredibly low coefficient of thermal expansion. These panes even stand up to incredibly high temperatures of up to 760°C for a short time, as well as considerable shifts in temperature and shocks. These exact characteristics, temperature stability, transparency, heat transmission and a long lifespan are advantages that enable ROBAX® to offer the best possible protection from the dangers of a fire especially compared to conventional flat glass.
