UNDERSTANDING FIRE RESISTANT GLAZING

Fire rated glazing is a complicated subject, especially in mixed use projects.  Knowing when to specify fire protection rated glazing vs. fire resistant rated glazing is important to meeting building code requirements and Owner design criteria.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand that fire rated glazing must not only include the glass, but also the frame and what types of frames are available. 
  • Learn the various types and ratings of fire rated glass and when to use each. 
  • Learn how to blend fire resistance rated glass with ballistic resistance and blast resistance.
