Where is Fire Rated Glass used:

Fire Rated Glass is used particularly in compartmentation of a building. Doors and partitions are used to protect corridors and egress ways from flames and heat for fast and safe evacuation of a building or quick access to the source of a fire by emergency personnel. One of the key design benefits of using Fire Rated Glass is to bring natural light into the heart of a building to enhance the environment and distinctive design features while maximizing the safety of its inhabitants. This leads to the use of Fire Rated Glass in walls, floors, fa├žades, doors and roofing systems all designed to isolate and contain a fire.
