Fire-Resistive Glass (Fire-Resistance-Rated Glass) is made with two or more layers of safety glass with an intumescent interlayer or gel, providing insulating layer (s) to not only block smoke and flames but also provide a barrier to heat. The glass conforms to ASTM E-119, UL / ULC 263 and CAN 4 S-101. (Fire Tests of Building Construction Materials) non-load-bearing-wall test requirements and does not face area limitations due to its heat insulation characteristics.
Fire-Resistive Glass is employed to prevent the spread of fire through conduction, convection or radiation (heat transfer). This helps reduce the risk of burns and also impeded egress that can occur due to the sensation of heat experienced by building occupants.
