When fire breaks out in any area of the property, the first priority is to quickly and safely evacuate everyone from the building. Given that it is a time of emergency, having your doors and windows equipped with fire-rated glass gives people more time to exit safely. Depending on the rating, these glasses can create a barrier of resistance against the spread of fire and smoke and can stall the spread of fire for 20 minutes to 3 hours.
Prevent Damage and Injury The internal lining, which covers a large surface area inside the building, can produce a great amount of combustion heat when ablaze. This accelerates the spread of fire. Windows and doors having fire-rated glasses can withstand high temperatures without shattering, thereby preventing damage and injury.
Stop or Delay the Spread of Fire Fire-rated glass restricts the fire from getting out of control right away. At the same time, the glass material remains intact despite being exposed to high temperatures and water from the sprinkler system.
Protect the Nearby Buildings from the Impact of Fire The exterior walls of offices and commercial buildings must be able to contain the flames, thus reducing the chance of nearby buildings catching flames. However, if any windows on these walls don’t have fire-rated glass, know that they are unprotected and are in violation of the fire safety codes.
Make Evacuation Routes Safer The building architecture regulations require you to follow strict safety guidelines with respect to fire hazards. Hence, installing fire-rated windows along your emergency escape routes, like exit stairways, fire escapes, and other areas, will ensure safety and code compliance.
