Glass Reinforced Plastic, or GRP, For Your Doors and Windows

Glass Reinforced Plastic, also known as the GRP is fireproofing material which is reinforced with glass, usually after it has been molded to form a sheet. It is so fireproof that when it is broken into small pieces, one would not be able to tell that the glass was present in the first place. The most common applications of fireproofing materials are for interior and exterior walls in the building, doors, windows, and skylights. Fireproofing is important especially if you have wooden or flammable materials such as wood and carpets in your house.


The first step you should take in fireproofing a door is to get the glass brick. Glassbrick can be formed into various shapes and sizes to fit any door or window openings. When shopping for glassbrick ensure that you get the one that best fits your requirement. One of the most popular fireproofing materials in use nowadays is the fireproof glass brick. It is very strong, durable, and glass-like in its appearance.


The next step you will take in fireproofing a door is to install glass bricks inside the door to create a barrier between the glass and whatever is outside the door. There is also a possibility that glass bricks might get dislodged during the fire and break, this would not be very much of a problem as long as you replace them immediately. This is what makes glass brick a popular option among fireproofing specialists because you do not need to worry about glass breaking. You also have the option of getting a hard-wearing glass brick, which is designed to withstand heat and pressure. The glass brick may not be quite as fire resistant as the glass or GRP but it will cut through fire as long as you have prepared for it.
