The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) Fire-Resistant Glazing Group (FRGG) has announced the launch of an updated version of its fire-resistant glazing best practice guide.
The Guide to Best Practice in the Specification and Use of Fire-Resistant Glazed Systems covers how Fire-Resistant Glazing systems are used to control the spread of fire and smoke, which allows enough time for a safe escape, as well as safe access for fire safety services. This latest revision tracks changes in legislation and incorporates updates in line with constant product development undertaken by the construction industry.
The Guide is closely associated with Approved Document B for Fire Safety – one of a series of documents that offer a route to building regulation compliance over a range of subjects. Fire safety has been brought to the fore in the national agenda, and the FRGG remains committed to providing the best industry guidance to protect people from fire and the effects of fire. Fire-Resistant Glazing is critical for safety because it physically separates people and valuable objects from flames, smoke, heat and other products of combustion.
Adrian Blaydon, GGF Technical Officer and Secretary of the (FRGG) explains: “This Guide is an important document for the construction industry and offers comprehensive knowledge of Fire-Resistant Glazing. In addition, the Guide addresses the performance levels of Fire-Resistant Glazing, and how it is vital to combine the appropriate materials alongside the correct installation method to certify a Fire-Resisting performance.”
