Designed to resist the damaging effects of heat and preventing flames and smoke from spreading. As a result, properly installed fire rated glass can give you a considerable boost to fire safety!
Providing 30 – 60 minutes resistance
When it comes to fire, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. For that reason you’ll want the maximum time to take action to protect yourself and loved ones. Fireproof glass from The Glass Warehouse could be the solution for saving lives at home or place of work. All the fire glass from The Glass Warehouse is able to hold its integrity when exposed to fire for much longer than conventional glass. Providing 30 – 60 minutes resistance before melting, creating a solid barrier to the flames and smoke.
In the event of a fire, your fire glass might make the difference between disaster and escaping. Providing vital time for people to evacuate, counter-measures to be deployed and the fire department to arrive. When faced with a fire, a pane of fire-rated glass, which can hold flames back for up to an hour, could be the solution.
Every business will have its own requirements for fire glass, so we stock a range of fire options. Including very thick glass, thin and light glass and tempered options, as well as a range of fire resistance capabilities.
Reduces noise pollution and saves on energy bills
Fire rated glass from The Glass Warehouse is tempered to prevent injury in the event of breakage. It also acts as a heat insulator, saving money on energy bill and helps to control noise. Therefore reducing noise pollution between rooms with safety in mind.
Fire rated glass should be treated the same way as fire extinguishers, smoke alarms and other safety precautions, as they all provide the ability to control, delay and stop a fire. However, fire rated glass also serves other purposes – providing strong, durable and long-lasting windows and glass doors, soundproofing and excellent insulation in any conditions.
