AGC Glass Europe offers a complete range of fire resistant glasses, tested and approved according to European and National standards, that provides a unique combination of LIGHT, TRANSPARENCY and FIRE PROTECTION, for all building applications, framing types, fire resistance classes and durations:
Fire classes EN 13501-2 en EN12101-1:
|Class/Duration||15 min||20 min||30 min||45 min||60 min||90 min||120 min|
The required fire protection rating is specified by the respective national building regulations following a risk assessment based on the building characteristics and the location of the fire rated element (façade, partitioning walls, stairways, etc.)
In certain applications Safety (EN12600) is an additional requirement on fire resistant glass, thinking of doors (to a height of 1,40 m either side 2B2 or 1C3).
Fire-resistant glass is only a part of the overall fire-resistant element. The glazier has the responsibility to ensure that the fire element as a whole meets the requirements and/or the approval of the competent authorities receive. The official test owned by AGC are therefore available. AGC Europe accepts no liability if the fire-resistant glass is placed in systems that do not meet the requirements.
