Robax – The World’s Leading Ceramic Glass for Transparency and Heat Resistance

As the focal point in many homes and industries throughout the world, fireplaces contribute to a significant and sizeable investment. Radiating ambience, leisure and wellbeing, the world has seen a wave of transformations sweep over the fireplace manufacturing industry. Fireplaces have certainly evolved over the years, with SCOTT glass transformations taking centre stage – making them safer, more effective and much less harmful to the environment. 

Founded over 125 years ago, SCHOTT, an international technology group that is now leading the innovation of 21st century glass technology, is developing and manufacturing high-quality Robax ceramic fireplace glass products at a number of production sites around the globe, including LIT Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Working in close communication with our customers throughout the southern hemisphere, we are proud to supply and deliver a broad range of innovate Robax ceramic fireplace glass, designed for a diverse spectrum of applications that range from the following:

SCHOTT has certainly redefined the fireplace and barbecue by introducing its futuristic, technologically advanced Robax ceramic fireplace glass. Robax does not only add aesthetic beauty and greater efficiency, but it also comes with a wide range of valuable benefits, such as the following:

  • Robax offers an anti-reflective coating that prevents reflections from the surrounding area, affording owners the best visuals. 
  • Robax is heat resistant, which means that it can withstand temperatures up to 1 400°F (760°C). Additionally, it allows for greater heat transmission, transferring the heat through the glass into the room. 
  • Robax is highly transparent with almost zero thermal expansion, which means that it can receive quick fluctuations in temperature. Unlike tempered glass, its strength allows it to go from fire to ice without ever cracking or shattering. 
  • Robax can be produced in an array of colours, sizes and shapes, meeting a variety of interior design and architectural design preferences. 

At LIT Africa, not only are we focussed on our customers’ requirements, but we also strive to push the boundaries of glass technology for South Africa urban living environments, and always find solutions to fit our valued customers’ needs. We carry glass products that range from radiation resistant glazing glass, non-reflective glass and tinted glass for instrument panels, fireplace glazing glass, UV protective glazing for artworks, iridescent glazing and fire resistant glazing, to fire insulating glazing.
