VIDEO OF THE WEEK: GGF online Fire Resistant Glazing video

  • 5 Sep 2016

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) publish new online video, “Fire Resistant Glazing – Getting It Right vs. Getting It Wrong’.

Video shows why Fire Resistant Glazing should be used and why it should be installed correctly.

Fire-resistant glass

  • designed to protect lives and prevent fire damage to property
  • important part of any building where there is a fire safety risk
  • right specification and installation right is critical

Kevin Hulin, Chairman of the GGF Fire Resistant Glazing Group: “The new video clearly demonstrates the potentially catastrophic effect when normal glazing is used instead of fire resistant glazing as part of a building’s fire prevention strategy. Fire resistant glazing systems that have been fire tested and third party accredited, provide cost effective protection for people’s safety and for buildings in the event of a fire breaking out.”
