What is the Difference Between Fire-Resistive and Fire-Protective Glazing in Doors?
Fire Protective Glass compartmentalizes smoke and flames, but does not prevent radiant heat transfer, while Fire Resistive Glass prevents transmission of radiant heat. Nationally recognized testing laboratories such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL) or Intertek Warnock-Hersey perform fire-testing in specially-designed facilities that are equipped with monitoring equipment to evaluate the performance of the glass as part of a fire assembly.
