CPD details

CPD title: First in Fire Glass
CPD duration: 40 minutes

Specifying fire-resistant glazing and framing systems can be a complex process. Pyroguard’s seminar on fire-resistant glazing will provide you with an understanding of the different classifications of fire resistant glasses and their properties, in addition to key legislation and test standards.

Various applications and compositions will also be covered to demonstrate the safety, thermal, acoustic and design options that can be achieved when specifying fire glass, offering you a comprehensive introduction to the theme of fire-resistant glazing.

By the end of the seminar, you’ll understand the capabilities of integrity only, heat radiation control and fully insulated fire resistant glass, and understand:

  • How to specify fire resistant glass to meet with recognised EU and passive fire protection industry terminology
