Fire protection should always be considered within any building. At Glass Partitioning UK, we offer a range of fire rated glass partitioning systems and fire screens to suit even the most stringent of environments. Our expert team have detailed fire safety knowledge and are on hand to walk you through the process of selecting the best system to protect your space and staff.
Many glass partitions don’t actually need to be structurally fire rated according to UK Building Regulations, however, it’s always important to check if you have any doubts.
In short, yes. The legal level of fire safety your space requires will ultimately come down to a Building Control Office (BCO) and your building’s regulations, however, our experienced team is available to help point you in the right direction.
In general, certain areas will require more safety protection than others. These tend to be frequently used corridors and escape routes, just to name a few. Once installed, our fire rated glass partitioning systems can offer spaces with a maximum protection of 60/60, should the unfortunate event of a fire occur.
The classification of a fire and protection against spread can be split into two sections:
These classifications will be listed in terms of minutes of integrity/insulation. For example, 30/30 would suggest the partition provides 30 minutes of integrity and 30 minutes of insulation. This is our standard recommendation.
