Beyond the Basics: Advances in Fire-Rated Glazing Enhance School Safety

The primary purpose of fire-rated glass in buildings, like schools for example, is for containment and to slow the spread of a fire so occupants can exit the building safely. Historically, building codes allowed fire-rated glazing to be installed in applications such as small lites in doors. Codes now allow for fire-rated glass in many places so understanding codes to avoid misapplications is critically important. Modern fire-rated glazing can be used in larger openings bringing more natural light into a school and can feature a variety of aesthetic and performance benefits including force-entry resistance making schools safer in the modern world. Read more about how fire-rated glass can enhance schools design.
