The GGF Fire Resistant Glazing Group (FRGG) is raising its profile with an increased presence at the FIREX show (19 – 21 June at London Excel).

At stand A475, the GGF will be highlighting to the Construction Industry the importance of Fire Resistant Glazing and why building contractors, designers, architects and specifiers should guarantee they are using trusted qualified companies, like GGF Members, to conduct the supply and fitting of fire resistant glazing.

The GGF technical team will answer technical queries regarding the performance of fire resistant glazing systems.

Adrian Blaydon, GGF Technical Officer and Secretary of the FRGG, commented: “Over the last twelve months, the subject of fire-resistance within construction has been very much in the spotlight.

“The Guide to Best Practice in the Specification and Use of Fire-Resistant Glazed Systems offers assistance as to how glass can play its part in a building’s fire strategy; and we are pleased that the updated guide will be published in June with a launch planned at FIREX.”

The show will feature a GGF video presentation, demonstrating how fire resistant glazing installed correctly can offer valuable time in event of a fire.

The GGF will also host a presentation on ‘Fire-rated Glazing – Getting It Right, Getting it Wrong’, discussing the importance of how glass is integral to the fire strategy of a building.

The GGF will also be giving away a free hard copy of the newly launched Fire Resistant Glazing Guide (RRP £150) to the first 20 visitors to the GGF stand A475 at the show.

In light of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, fire safety is firmly in people’s minds and is a priority nationally; the FRGG remains committed to providing the best industry guidance to protect people from fire.

This specifically relates to the safety of building occupants, while allowing unhindered access for rescue crews.

Fire-resistant glazing physically separates people and valuable objects from flames, smoke, heat and other products of combustion – vital for safe egress.
