Fire Rated Glass Screens

Fire safety is a top priority for any workplace or building that is used by the public.

Stringent building regulations are in place to ensure the safety of employees, visitors and members of the general public.

If a fire should occur, the building fabric should offer the necessary protection (fire rating) to allow people sufficient time to safety exit the building.

 

Whether a specific wall should be fire rated – i.e. resist the progress of fire or heat – or not, is a Building Regulations issue.

Your local Building Control Officer will be able to advise what the legal requirements are and the level of performance required.

Glass Walls and Doors cannot provide advice on this, but we can provide a solution for fire rated screens once you know what you need.

Performance classification of fire ratings is detailed in the the European standard EN357 and consists of two main elements:

Fire Integrity – providing a physical barrier to restrict the progress of fire, hot toxic gasses and smoke from one side of the partition to the other, to help minimise building damage.

Fire Insulation – limiting the transfer of heat from one side of the partition to the other, which could otherwise cause ignition of materials on the non-fire side.

Partitions may be rated for Integrity only (E), or for Integrity and Insulation (EI), with numbers to denote the minutes of protection.

Examples:
E30 provides 30 minutes of integrity protection. The performance classification may also be expressed as 30/00
EI60 proves 60 minutes integrity and insulation protection. This is often shown as 60/60.

Both elements are designed to protect life as well as the building fabric, providing more time for the building to be safely evacuated. Fire rated partitions and fire screens are therefore most often required along escape routes, corridors or common areas. Advice should be sought from your local Building Control Officer. Once you know the level of performance (fire rating) that is required, please contact us for a quotation.
