Fire Resistant Glazing Group (FRGG)
Membership of the FRGG represents a commitment to following the Fire Resistant Glazing Best Practice Guide, which, as the name suggests, contains the vital information that relates to the instalment and use of fire resistant glazed systems. The Guide is used as a reference within the Building Regulations for Fire Safety (England & Wales), and all FRGG members follow its principles and guidelines.
