Abstract

Considers the attributes of glass in fire protection. Briefly reviews the three main types of fire resisting glasses; wired glass, heat treated fire glass and insulating glass. Suggests that fire‐resistance is a function of the glazing system used, incorporating glass, design and framing. Concludes with the benefits of steel‐based glazing.
