Fire Rated Glass in the event of the fire can provide an effective barrier to fire, smoke & hot gasses (integrity). Wired glass is produced by carefully embedding wire mesh or metal wires into glass.
On exposure to fire the glass fractures but is held in one piece by the wire mesh, thus maintaining integrity by preventing collapse, & the passage of smoke & flames. The use of these glasses can also act as a deterrent to would - be intruders.
In case of clear glass, it can result in fracture by minor accidents or malicious damage, thereby not acting as an effective fire barrier Fire rated wired Glass is used in buildings throughout the world when cost effective fire resistant glazing is required in windows, partitions & doors.
The strength of the wire mesh ensures that the glass breaks safely & does not allow the broken pieces to act as a sharp weapon.
The Best Choice Of Fire Resistance Rated Glazing Material
High quality glass with a flat and smooth surface.
Produced by a unique and efficient 'DUPLEX' process, this is the only one process all over the world.
World-wide most cost-effective glazing material for FIRE RESISTANCE
Exteriors and interiors of general construction
Doors and windows of buildings where fire protection is required
Locations where fallout protection is required
Classifications of Fire Rated Glass
Integrity only :
Prevents the passage of significant quantities of flames or hot gasses to the non - fire side.
Ex. Polished wired, Tempered type
Radiation control :
Controls radiated heat in front of the non-fire side, below a certain specified level. Ex. Laminated type
Unique manufacturing Process :
The central glass polished wired glass is produced by a unique manufacturing process ccalled "DUPLEX PROCESS", in which both surfaces of the glass are simultaneously ground & polished in one continuous operation. This process makes it possible to create a flat & smooth surface.
Advantage of Duplex Process
Both glass surfaces can be ground/polished at one time in one continuous operation.
As a result, glass have very flat and smooth surface with much stable quality
(compared with those of other manufacturers)
