FIRE-PROTECTIVE GLASS

FIRE AND SMOKE CONTAINMENT

(NFPA 80, 252, 257; UL 9, 10b, 10c)

Did you know that most fatalities resulting from fires are caused by smoke inhalation? With fire-resistive glass, you make sure that openings due to early breakage or melting of the glass don’t risk people’s lives.

Vetrotech Saint-Gobain - Keralite Exterior Blue VDS

Keep people safe from toxic gas and smoke

Standard annealed, wired and non-fire-rated tempered glass offer little or no resistance in case of fire. Fire-protective glass, on the other hand, provides a physical barrier against passage of flames, smoke and hot, toxic gases. Its most important properties are resisting breakage due to thermal shock and melting-out caused by high temperatures. By ensuring the integrity of the glass you can help to keep unaffected areas safe.
