Fire Resistant Glass

Fire Glass

There is a wide range of glass that can be used to give extended fire protection both in internal screens and external windows. Any type of glass that has passed a fire test and can resist the passage of smoke, flames and hot gases is considered fire resistant glass. The performance of fire rated glass products is measured in 30 minute periods for integrity (the ability of the glass to hold back flames and hot gases) and insulation (the ability of the glass surface to remain below prescribed limits). The products that protect against fire are tested either to British Standards or European Standards.

Internally the glass can be used in a single form to provide protection in specific areas or to provide an escape route through the building.

Fire rated glass can be single or double glazed and is used in a variety of framing systems from timber, steel and even specialist aluminium systems.

It is important to use materials that are compatible with each other and designed to give similar performance to ensure that the glazed system works as a whole.
