Successful fire testing of Georgian Wired Safety Polished Glass from Float Glass Industries Ltd provides independent evidence of the product’s fire resistance performance when used in conjunction with CERTIFIRE approved glazing systems. In assessments by the world’s leading fire testing specialist, Exova Warringtonfire, FGI’s 7mm glass satisfied the integrity performance requirements of BS 476: Part 22: 1987 for a period of up to 60 minutes in timber based doorsets and for a period of 30 minutes in timber framed screens. The scope of the assessments in terms of glass sizes and applications is strictly in accordance with current certification covering the seal manufacturers’ CERTIFIRE approval.

FGI says the results will give its customers the confidence to substitute the glass in glazed assemblies that match the parameters of those used in the tests. “This establishes third party approval for our Georgian Wired Safety Glass, which is an important industry accreditation and not widely available for this type of product,” says FGI’s Joint Managing Director, David Offland. “Our customers can now order this approved fire glass at a great price and get the added benefits of our fast and flexible delivery service. We guarantee the very best deals on Georgian Wired safety glass and will supply in volume and boxed, loose or split as part of a mixed load.”
