Standards define installations of glass suitable for different situations in construction. Fireproof glass installations must ensure efficient fire extinguishing and protection of people and property.
The purpose of the glass barrier is not simple because its goal is to:
- create evacuation route;
- limit expansion of fire;
- preserve human lives and property.
Therefore, fireproof glass installations must fit well with the rest of the architecture, i.e. facade firefighting positions must be in harmony with the remaining facade and other parts of the building in terms of aesthetics but also functionality.
Kristal offers fireproof glass Pyrobel and Pyrobelite made of several layers of float clear glass with transparent foil and intermediary layers between them. In case of fire, glass panels turn into an opaque screen that stops the fire and limits transfer of heat.
