Fire Rated Glass


Fire Rated & Wire Glass creates a barrier to smoke & flames that ordinary glass can't. When heated beyond 250°F, normal glass will break and allow easy access for smoke and fire to spread. Fire-rated glass has been tested in conditions where the temperature may exceed 1,000°F. Fire-rated glass that has passed that kind of testing will remain intact and restrict the expansion of the fire.

Typically, fire-rated glass is used instead of ordinary window glass in corridors, lobbies, stairwells and other areas of a building that could serve as an escape route during a fire.

Wired Glass is a criss-cross wire pattern in the glass. The wire is embedded in the glass to hold it in place during a fire.
