Improved KeraShield Fire and Safety-Rated Glass
Better Color-Rendering, Lower Haze and Now Shipping from Two US Locations
Air Louvers now brings you KeraShield™ Select with a patent-pending surface polishing technology resulting in brilliant clarity. We are changing all of our standard KeraShield (KFRF) to this innovative glass ceramic. As a result of extensive research and development, this improved glazing combines a surface polishing technology with advanced composition to create the sharpest, most accurate color-viewing glass ceramic in its class. KeraShield Select boasts a color-rendering index of 97.1 (out of 100), the highest R96a value for glass ceramics. It also has the lowest haze value at 0.5% available and bears no cloudy appearance even in variable lighting conditions. Comparable to float glass in quality, the surface doesn’t have the “orange peel effect” common to standard fire-rated glass ceramics. The glass, which installs into standard fire-rated frames and doors, comes in 20-, 45-, 60-, 90- and 180-minute fire-ratings.
KeraShield KFRL laminate is now also manufactured with the new highly polished Select glass, giving you greater clarity with the safety film protected between the glass layers.
