In order to comply with fire regulations in certain circumstances glazing must be fire resistant. It’s aim is to stop the spread of fire and enable a safe evacuation of a building. It can function as physical protection against flames and smoke. It also acts as a control mechanism for heat transfer through conduction, radiation and convection.
Fire-resistant glass offers various levels of protection measured in terms of;
Integrity – the time the glass remains intact in a fire
Insulation – the amount the glass will limit the temperature rise on the non-fire side.
