Exclusive renovation

A comprehensive project to refurbish an open plan, first-floor kitchen and dining space within a luxury Victorian residential property in Notting Hill has used the Promat Systemglas Celare fire resistant glazing system to balance outstanding aesthetics with assured passive fire protection.

A floor-to-ceiling glazing element with a butt-jointed corner, specified with a 30-minute (EI30) fire rating, was an integral part of the design in the renovation project, allowing for a high level of natural light to be introduced into a stairway and downstairs hallway via the kitchen.

With its fire resistant Promatect H framing set into the surrounding floor, walls and ceiling to give a frameless effect, Systemglas Celare enabled the architect to achieve the dual aesthetic and performance goals and deliver client peace of mind.

Systemglas Celare is designed, manufactured, and processed by Promat UK at its ISO 9001 (2015) and ISO 14001 (2015) registered factories and installed only by Promat-approved installers. This enables Promat UK to offer a certificate of compliance on completion to give architects and clients a ‘wheel of assurance’ in respect of the fire performance, with complete supply chain traceability.

Ian Cowley, regional director (UK and Scandinavia) at Promat, said: “This refurbishment project in Notting Hill is a fantastic development with a high-quality interior an open plan layout, due to a visionary approach by the architects and owner. We are delighted that Systemglas Celare has been selected, due to its virtually frameless appearance that complements the modern luxurious interior along with maximum assurance of fire protection with the Systemglas 360° Wheel of Assurance.”
