Why choose fire-resistant glass doors or windows
The first step against the spread of flames and smoke is an appropriate fireproof closing solution with extreme heat resistance. These specific doors must keep the environment insulated from the rest of the building and prevent temperature rise in the adjacent rooms.
To accomplish its objective, the door must be designed and manufactured properly. Indeed, the glass used in traditional windows and closing options is not enough to face fires. The stratified glasses are made with a special intumescent gel, which, in case of fire, mattes and creates an isolating shield against heat and smoke, as long as it is granted by its resistance class.
The fireproof glass doors and windows are made of steel profiles and glass, which gives transparency, exposure and visibility. A blend of top-quality materials that turns into a versatile solution for safeness and fire prevention.
Types of fireproof glass doors
The stratified glasses are used in windows as well as doors that open manually. The first is the perfect solution to light up a given environment without compromising on safety. Whereas the fire-resistant glass doors are used to close doorways, and their manual opening system is ideal not to limit the transition.
All the fireproof closing solutions are suitable to be applied in a variety of sectors and may be enriched with additional aesthetic elements.
Fire resistance of materials is measured through fire-resistance rating. Fire resistance rating is typically determined by measuring the ability of a passive fire protection material or assembly to withstand a standard fire resistance test. A rating of 30 equals to a fire resistance of 30 minutes, and so on.
While time ratings vary, standard ratings include 30- to 90-minute doors. Doors with 120 minutes fire resistance are more common in large and commercial buildings than in residential structures, considering potential mass evacuations.
Aluminium profiles with stratified glass suit both functional and aesthetic requirements. The refined design of the door makes it suitable also for elegant environments. Thus, without affecting the aesthetic and architectural aspect, it can perform the fire-retardant function.
