Fire compartmentation crucial to preventing devastation in skyscrapers

Several notable cases have highlighted that sprinkler systems can make matters worse in some circumstances, with cold water coming into contact with non-fire rated glass and causing a breakage, allowing more oxygen to reach the seat of the fire.

Wrightstyle’s systems are capable of up to 120 minutes of insulation, and have been tested to USA fire test regulations, including the hose stream test whereby the glass and framing assembly is subjected to a stream of cold water to establish a fire fighter response.
