We are proud to offer UL and ULC listed and UL/ULC (United States and Canada) classified and permanently UL labeled 3/16" thick FireLite clear ceramic fire rated protective glazing products. These products offer a wide variety of options such as 20,45,60 and up to 90 minute fire ratings for wall or door applications. They also meet the required Fire Hose Stream (thermal shock) tests.
3/16" thick FireLite-NT (Filmed) and 5/16" thick FireLite+PLus (Laminated) meet the Impact Resistance requirements of the standards ANSI Z97 and CPSC 16 CFR 1201 Cat II and passing the positive pressure test standard of UL 10C, within the maximum permissible width, height or total exposed area limits. (See appropriate FireLite Specifications Data sheets on this site for additional information on size or rating limits and proper product applications)
These high performance "wireless" clear view ceramic fire protective glazing products are also available in 2 grades of surface clarity as "Standard" or "Premium.” Either grade is also available as Impact Resistant in 3/16" FireLite-NT(filmed) or 5/16" FireLite-Plus(laminated). These clear fire protective ceramics meet the impact safety rating requirements of ANSI-Z97.1 and CPSC 16CFR1201 Cat 1 and 2. *With the quality of current production surfacing methods "Standard" grade is widely accepted and the most common required.
FireLite ceramic fire protective glass products are also offered in Insulated Glass Units (IGU) sealed assemblies that can optionally provide the addiational performance of protection from medical diagnostic X-Ray Gamma ionizing radiation (up to 1.6mm and 2.0mm lead shielding equivalency) or the benefits of Low-E ratings, and naturally provide higher insulation factors and sound transmission reduction (STC Rating 35 dB+) than single pane monolithic glazing.
*Important Notice: FireLite ceramic products do not provide “fire resistive” protection from thermal heat transfer or special 60+ minute fire ratings that additionally have temperature rise requirements...however we offer Pyrostop Multi-Laminated Fire Resistive glass to meet these requirmements.
Upon customer request for Thermal or temperature rise compliant products we can offer the UL classified Pilkington Pyrostop product lines in 45, 60, 90 and up to 120 minute ratings that are available to meet these “fire resistive” thermal heat transfer or temperature rise requirements.
