Today, fire-rated glazed partitions have become a standard in interior design. Architects incorporate them as an option of choice both in modern office spaces and in classical interior designs. The installation systems used in glazed partitioning have evolved immensely over the last few years, from solid frames and sections to almost invisible edge framing in tandem with silicone joints.
Satin glass is characterised by its delicate matte finish producing a translucent effect. Developing our new POLFLAM product, we have successfully implemented new solutions to overcome technological barriers. The satinated side of the glass panel faces the inside of the glazing unit and is in contact with the fire-resistant hydrogel interlayer. Therefore, it is not exposed to dirt or to potential scratching.
In June, specialists from POLFLAM took part in the conference “Modern Glass Partitions – Key to Building Comfort”, which had been organised by the editors of “Świat Szkła” (Glass World) monthly magazine.
The conference served as an exchange forum for expert knowledge of standardisation regulations regarding the use of internal glazing in buildings. One of the topics discussed was fire resistance testing and classification of glazed partition walls.
With the pandemic-related restrictions being lifted, we are gradually relaunching our training activities – in Poland and abroad. More and more dates are being fixed for events that had to be postponed.
Last autumn, the FIRE ACADEMY 2019 training sessions took place in Ghent, Brussels and Liège, organised by the Belgian branch of ALUPROF in cooperation with POLFLAM. At this event, specialists from these two companies and representatives from key Belgian building trade institutions – ISIB, AGORIA, WTCB and Fire Forum – discussed fire safety in the construction industry with a focus on fire-resistant glazing.

Important notice: The organizer has finally postponed the fair until next year for public health security reasons. We will notify you about the exact date once it is announced.
NORDBYGG is the largest Swedish construction and real estate fair. It takes place every two years, gathers almost 1000 exhibitors. We will present our products there, including the newest ones.
At the stand you will be able to get information about the entire range of POLFLAM products. We have also prepared a set of samples of glass in all the EI classes that we make: from 30 to 180. POLFLAM F glass for ceilings, with a load capacity of up to 5 kN/sq m, which enjoyed the greatest interest at the last BAU trade fair in Munich, will be shown in its real application – integrated into the architecture of our stand.
See you in Stockholm!

Wood is the noblest material used in the production of window and door joinery. It is currently experiencing a real renaissance. Thanks to modern technology, it can also be used in many parts where fire resistance is required.
POLFLAM® fire-resistant glass can be combined with wood in various ways.
Ceilings are undoubtedly one of the most difficult challenges which the manufacturer of fire resistant glass faces. This is due to the fact that glass used in ceilings has, in an incident of fire, to endure in extreme conditions, while bearing loads. At the same time, the market demand for this product is huge.
POLFLAM F glass has a load-bearing capacity of up to 5 kN / m2. It is available in three fire resistance classes: REI 30, 45 and 60. Therefore, in the event of fire, it ensures complete safety of evacuation within the time limit required by law – 30, 45 or 60 min.
Baltisse has completed the acquisition of POLFLAM, a Polish fire-resistant glass manufacturer rapidly expanding across Europe. The selling shareholders were the two founders, Maciej Szamborski and Wojciech Wilczak, and Syntaxis Capital, a private debt and growth capital investor.(more…)
