Fire resistant glass for home or business provides protection & resistance from the fire. Fire rated glasses are not meant for interiors alone. They can be used in exteriors and combined gracefully with architect’s design. Their optical transmission is same as an ordinary float glass. The strength of a fire-resistant glass is 6 times as that of an ordinary float glass and 1.5 times as that of a tempered glass. The glass can effectively prevent the spread of flame and smoke, giving people enough time to evacuate the scene and carry out relief work.
Fire-resistant glass can be used as a substrate for other glass units, such as insulated glass, laminated glass etc to obtain better performances. It is widely used in movie theatres, banks, hospitals, shopping malls, large-scale casino and server rooms etc.
