Fire glass is rated by its ability not to break under intense heat (integrity) and also by its ability to stop heat passing through it (Insulation).
Sligo Glass can cut Fire rated glass to any size you require & can specify the type of fire glass you need . The fire rating is achieved by laminating glass with an interlayer that turns to foam during a fire.
Fire rated glass is specified in many modern buildings, mostly as Vision Panels in Fire Doors & in Partition Screens. Fire rating is especially important in Public Buildings, Offices, Hospitals, Kitchens, Schools, Nursing homes & Hotels.
