Fire Resistant Glazing Systems

by Lorient Polyproducts Ltd

Glazed panels are often required in fire resistant walls and doors to allow vision and natural light. In door assemblies, they allow people to see others approaching from the opposite direction; they also allow fire and smoke to be seen without opening the door - an important safety benefit. However, gaps, joints and interfaces between dissimilar materials invariably form points of weakness and provision needs to be made to seal these effectively. The solution is to fit fire resistant glass secured using one of Lorient's fire resistant glazing systems; which holds the glass firmly in place during normal use, but in the event of fire the intumescent material expands, securing and insulating the glass and protecting the surrounding timber.
