Designing for Fire Safety in Schools

As more students enter the school system each year, creating educational facilities with a balanced fire and life safety protection plan has never been more critical. Fire-rated glazing can be a key part of the solution. With proper specification, it can defend against the spread of fire, resist impact from rambunctious students and transfer natural light into learning areas, which can improve student performance.1 According to recent studies, daylight can help create environments in which students learn better over the course of an academic year. To select first-class glass solutions able to provide the necessary fire and life safety protection in schools and support student wellbeing, consider the following resources.
