Where is fire-resistant glazing used?

Historically, fire-rated glazing applications were limited to narrow lites within fire-rated doors or in small portions of fire-rated walls. However, advances in fire-rated glass production have significantly expanded the sizes of these assemblies. They have also allowed rated glazing assemblies to be used in more areas of the built environment—from the floor to the ceiling.

Model codes like the International Building Code (IBC) or the National Fire Protection Association’s Life Safety Code (NFPA 101) enumerate what ratings an assembly needs in order to meet code requirements. That said, it is important to contact an Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to clarify a project’s requirements—including whether a glazing assembly needs to be fire-resistive or fire-protective, what areas constitute a corridor or path of egress, the square-footage threshold before a fire-rated barrier is needed for compartmentalization and codes that affect the building envelope.

To satisfy these requirements for curtain walls, storefronts, flooring systems, interior walls, door assemblies and much more, TGP’s fire-rated products are available in multiple fire rating classifications, framing styles (from narrow-profile steel to butt-glazed systems) and opacities. They are versatile enough to meet a wide range of fire-rated glazing applications.
