SCHOTT products provide preventive protection for museums and art exhibitions

05.10.2015

Protective glass against many dangers: fire, ballistic and manual attack as well as UV rays

Mainz & Jena (Germany), October 1, 2015 - The product portfolio of the international technology group SCHOTT includes various safety glasses for comprehensive protection of museums, exhibition halls and all types of art work. The company has played a pioneering role in the development of glass laminates that withstand burglary attempts and shelling, yet offer fire resistance for higher building safety.

Furthermore, SCHOTT offers picture framing and safety glazing that not only protect works of art and paintings from vandalism. Representatives of SCHOTT will give presentations on “Transparent Security” at this year’s event series “Das grüne Museum” (The Green Museum) in Frankfurt/Main on October 8, in Berlin on October 14 and in Vienna on October 28.

Preventive conservation of art works already begins with optimal protection of the building in which they are displayed. Here, SCHOTT has developed highly efficient, yet compact glass laminates that withstand burglary attempts and ballistic attacks, while simultaneously offering protection and security in the event of a fire.

PYRANOVA® secure glazing can fend off multiple attacks at the same time. In addition, it is thin and thus saves weight. NOVOLAY® secure types of glass exhibit low specific density and unmatched transparency thanks to their special glass composition.

SCHOTT’s special glasses MIROGARD® Protect Ultra and AMIRAN® provide direct protection for works of art. The new picture glazing glass MIROGARD® Protect Ultra offers extremely high UV protection of 99.9 percent and very good splinter protection. Another big advantage is that it has a light weight of 6.5 kilograms per square meter, and thus can be installed very quickly and easily. Due to its minimal thickness of 2.95 mm, the new laminated glass fits into any standard frame solution.

SCHOTT also offers a reliable glazing solution for art that cannot be framed. AMIRAN® safety glazing reliably protects precious art against vandalism and eliminates virtually all distracting reflections. Due to its anti-reflective coating, the glass offers excellent transmittance: it allows up to 98 percent of the light to pass through unhindered without causing any reflections. This is particularly important for showcases because light differs considerably in front of and behind the glass.

Preventive conservation is the focus of this year’s event series “Das grüne Museum” in Frankfurt/Main, Berlin and Vienna. The SCHOTT representatives Ulrich Huber, Sales Manager for Architectural Glass, Claus-Peter Jacobi and Frank Thomas, both Sales Managers for Fire-Resistant and Safety Glass, as well as Oliver Kienast, Sales Manager for Fire-Resistant and Safety Glass in Austria, will speak on the topic of “Transparent Security.”

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
