Put your mind at rest and trust your fire rated glass needs to a respected local company – ABC Glass and Mirror
Fire rated glass is specially manufactured to contain and resist fire, smoke, and sometimes heat. It is required in certain structures by state and local building codes across the country, as well as national regulations. There are a variety of ratings for different fire rated products, and these relate to features such as how long the glass can resist fire, whether it can withstand the jet of water from a fire hose and the accompanying temperature shock, and how resistant it is to impact. The fire rated glass offered by ABC is a ceramic product and is generally between 1/4″ and 5/8” thick.
