Testing Fire Fixed Flat Rooflights
Here’s a brief guide to our fire testing process -
Glass and framing are installed into a test furnace and a flame is lit to imitate a real live fire. The temperature of the glass is then measured, and the integrity ratings are based on the amount of time the glass remains intact within the frame.
Once testing is complete the glazing will be given a fire rating between 30 to 60 minute integrity, this gives you an idea as to how long the glass will prevent the spread of smoke and fire.
If you’re looking to specify fire rated glazing such as fixed flat rooflights for a new building, we would recommend letting us know as soon as possible so we can factor this into the design.
Safety glass also doesn’t provide the level of protection fire rated glazing does, so we would strongly advise against using this as an alternative.
