Q&A: Can I use any type of glazing media with fire resistant glass?

No, this is a common misconception. Meeting regulatory standards involves more than just installing fire glass into a framing system.

Different types of tapes, seals and liners react differently in a fire situation depending on their composition. Fire glass in its own right has all the essential characteristics to offer fire resistance for a predetermined duration; however it must be installed as a component into an approved system to achieve a certified and usable application. This includes using the specific glazing media which the glass was tested with.

In addition to being a trusted British fire glass supplier, Pyroguard can also directly supply the glazing accessories required to achieve the certified application, giving you confidence in the system certification and compatibility and reducing procurement costs and administration.
