Traditionally glass has been the last material architects think of when specifying fire barriers. New technologies are turning this traditional thinking on its head.
Glass is now firmly established throughout the world as a fire protection material. Advances in glass and the manufacturing technology of glass mean that todays range of fire resistant glazing offers creative options for the designer/specifier. With our Promat SYSTEMGLASS® glazing systems we have developed a wide range of systems for fire resistant applications of up to 120 minutes ratings, including FD30 and FD60 doors, which provide both integrity and insulation when exposed to fire. Typical examples include glazed screens without vertical or horizontal framing and all-glass doors.
