Glazing in the facade can present a unique set of challenges – in addition to the building envelope’s solar, thermal, acoustic or other design requirements. The most important, on the one hand, is the prevention of fire spread from floor to floor, to adjacent buildings or areas of refuge. On the other hand, it’s important to address the security challenge of intrusion, bullet or blast incidents – especially in combination with fire-resistance.
