Ensure compliance with the minimum standards of fire safety laid down in UK building regulations
For new build or retro fit projects it is important you comply with the minimum standards of fire safety to ensure buildings provide adequate protection for life and property in the event of fire.
Developments in glass have resulted in the introduction of more sophisticated products with increasingly higher fire resistance performances, in both integrity (resistance to fire penetration) and insulation (resistance to the transfer of excessive heat).
We can provide fire rated glass for many different applications in both wired and clear forms.
There are two main features of fire-resistant glass,
This type of glass will not break under the stress of fire for either 30 mins or 60 mins depending on the specification.
This type of glass keeps heat from transferring through the glass (for example glass being used around a fire escape) so people can still pass without being exposed to heat.
We use glass that passes building regulations for the following requirements:
- 30min Integrity
- 30min Integrity & Insulation
- 60min Integrity
- 60min Integrity & Insulation
We stock a full range of intumescent sealant and tape including ceramic tape for fire glass installation. Without these specialist fitting materials your fire door will not pass building inspection.
