Architectural Fire-rated Glazing: An Application Guide
Sponsored by: Vetrotech Saint-Gobain
Intro to fire-rated glazing: Health, safety, and welfare remain a fundamental aspect of building design practices. Incorporating fire-rated glass products provides creative design options while adhering to current model building codes. The new generation of fire-rated products is available in larger sizes that can withstand a fire for longer periods of time, and many fire-rated products can provide high impact safety rating, solar control, sound reduction, bullet resistance and hurricane impact safety, to name only a few multi -functional features. This course will define categories of fire rated glass products, as well as the related test standards and current building code requirements for specifying architectural fire-rated glazing.
