Lamilux glass skylights now prevent the spread of fire for 90 minutes

For three years now, Lamilux has included skylights from the “Fire Resistance” series in its portfolio, which defy fire and heat for a certain period of time in case of fire and prevent the spread of fire. Now the skylight manufacturer has succeeded in extending this protection even further: The new Lamilux Glass Skylight Fire Resistance REI 90 provides daylight and prevents flames from spreading to other fire compartments for at least 90 minutes.

Award-winning design of the Lamilux product innovation

With its reduced design on the inside and filigree cover strips on the outside, the skylight is also visually impressive. The Lamilux Glass Skylight Fire Resistance REI 90 has already been awarded the “Special Mention” of the German Design Awards in the category “Excellent Product Design — Building and Elements” for outstanding design 2023.

Furthermore, the medium-sized family business founded in 1909 is one of the world’s largest producers of carbon and glass fiber reinforced plastics. These composite materials provide stability, lightweight construction and impact resistance for instance in roof, wall and floor linings in commercial vehicles.
