Fire Test for Fire-Rated Glass

Fire-Rated Product Testing

Play Video

To earn a fire rating, glass must pass rigorous tests conducted by an independent laboratory. Watch fire-rated glass being tested to these standards.

Hose Stream Test for Fire-Rated Glass

Immediately following the fire test, heated glass is sprayed with water from a fire hose at specified pressures. The cooling, impact and erosion created by the hose stream tests the integrity of the glass. TGP’s products with fire ratings greater than 20 minutes such as FireLite® and Pilkington Pyrostop® have all passed the hose stream test.
