As one of the more expensive glass types on the market, fire-rated glazing has proven itself a worthwhile investment.
Commercial fires cost nearly $350 billion per year in the United States.
Fire losses are one of the most costly disasters. Most commercial fires aren't caused intentionally or carelessly, but due to malfunctioning equipment or electrical issues.
Once a fire starts, it spreads so fast that it can be difficult for firefighters to contain once they arrive on the scene.
Installing fire-rated glass helps prevent the rapid spread of fire, especially in more at-risk facilities. This is a fire protection system that’s always on.
Most commercial exterior doors feature glass. With the exception of the hardware, some are even made entirely of glass.
While often used in projects for functionality and appearance, glass is also a material that keeps your property and those inside safe.
