Fire rated window and door glass is a term used to identify a certain thickness and duration of glass material used to protect a structure from fires. This type of safety glass has been recognized by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) as being one of the highest standards of fire-safety glass available. With the threat of fires in modern society and the need to use modern fire security equipment in order to prevent the loss of life, it is important that people use fire rated glass for all of their building and commercial projects. The cost of fire-rated glass is much less than other types of safety glass and the lives saved due to fire rated glass far outweigh the cost of fire-rated glass. When fireproof glass is used in an area where there are likely to be fired, this type of fireproofing can dramatically decrease the losses of lives and damage in a fire event.
Fire rated door and window glass comes with a ten-minute fire resistance, making these products superior to other types of safety glass. Fire-rated glass is also fireproof providing the safest possible environment for those who dwell in or work in an area that is at high risk of a fire outbreak. These products are made with a two-sided adhesive backing that allows them to be easily applied to all interior doors and windows of a structure. The adhesive backing of fire protective glass allows it to be safely and securely installed by professionals without causing any problems during or after installation. The fire protective coatings of the door and window trim make sure that the product remains in place and does not peel off on exposure to heat, sun, water or other sources of damage.
The benefits of fire-rated glass in applications requiring fire protection are especially significant when the door or window is used for emergency exit. These products provide the fastest way for people to leave a structure in an emergency situation. These types of emergency exit glazing also create an easy way for those in the building to evacuate their home or business. For example, emergency personnel can quickly see which individuals are attempting to escape using fire rated glass-ceramic tiles. The emergency personnel can then quickly respond to an emergency by allowing people to evacuate the building safely.
