About the Topic: Pushing the Envelope With Fire Rated Glazing

Health, safety, and welfare remain a fundamental aspect of building design practices. Incorporating fire-rated glass products provides creative design options while adhering to current building codes. The new generation of fire-rated glazing systems are available for exterior curtainwall systems, interior glass fire separations, vestibules and doors incorporating larger sizes that can withstand a fire for longer periods of time. Many fire-rated products can provide high impact safety rating, solar control, thermal performance, sound reduction, bullet and security resistance, to name only a few multi-functional features. This presentation will define categories of fire-rated glass systems, as well as the related test standards and current building code requirements for specifying architectural fire-rated glazing.
