First-Class Glass

Learning centers have the immense responsibility of safeguarding tomorrow’s future. Thanks to advances in technology and manufacturing, fire-rated glass can be an essential part of the solution. The multifunctional material can defend against the spread of fire, resist impact from rambunctious students, transfer natural light into learning areas and help slow down intruders.

Designing for Fire Safety and Security in Schools

Glass is an essential element of safe school design. Many of today’s educational facilities rely on open floorplans with extensive glazing to create collaborative, light-filled interiors more conducive to learning. With recent innovations to fire-rated glazing, architects can choose fire and impact-safety-rated glass in a range of product make-ups and sizes, with an added security or safety glazing benefit included. When it comes to protecting the youngest and most vulnerable members of society, no longer is there a need to compromise aesthetics for fire safety and security.
