Fire rated glass partitioning
and screens

Architectural Wallsz specialises in delivering high technology fire rated glass partitions and screens that meet every requirement and the highest regulatory standards. Our expertise – as specialists in office fit-out projects in the UK – means that we can deliver fire rated glazed systems that match the specification and protection needs of every client.

Fire rated systems are commonly needed for commercial office fit-outs and as there has been increased use of glazing in buildings, the building code requirements for fire rated glass have improved and spurred the development of new types of fire and heat resistant glasses and glass partitions. A wide range of heat-resistant glass is now utilised in partitioning, screens and internal fire doors that will contain the spread of flame, smoke and heat and we are able to adapt our service to meet the fire rating you need in your individual commercial project.

In fire protection the trend for architects is towards incorporating more special modern glass in a number of new ways without compromising fire safety standards. This glass can be used in stairwells, computer rooms, evacuation routes and other heat sensitive areas and has the advantage of restricting the spread of flames, smoke and hot gases.

Our fire rated glass, tempered glass, partitions, screens and fire resistant glass doors all meet the highest regulatory standards, including British Standards, and latest certification and accreditation.

Architectural Wallsz designs provide modern, stylish transparent barriers that protect against fire for up to 120 minutes whilst also creating airy, open spaces that are flooded with light and finished with creative flair. This is a truly cutting-edge fire resistant glass for your commercial space.

Architectural Wallsz will produce a design with drawings and a quote that will meet all your requirements for adapting your working space. Fireproof glass can also create an eye-catching centrepiece that will flood a space with natural light.

Systems can utilise frameless, timber glazed or steel partitioning to meet whatever is required including sliding and folding partitioning and doors. To Architectural Wallsz, heat-resistant fire rated glass does not need to be basic, dated and dull, but can be an opportunity to provide a fresh and attractive modern space which keeps people safe.

Features of fire resistant office glass

Fire resistant glass systems are classified by the levels of integrity and insulation to contain the spread of flame, smoke and heat. From the latest silicone butt-jointed technology, to the very highest performance timber and steel framed systems, they offer from 30 minutes to up to two hours (120 minutes) integrity and insulation.

Integrity fire protection relates to the amount of time the system has been proven and is required to maintain its integrity when it is faced with fire, while insulation fire protection is an added measure where the partition also needs to insulate occupants of the building from the fire on the other side of the partition wall or glass screen.

The following levels of fire rating of between 30 to 120 minutes are available on our partitions – first number fire rating integrity and second fire rating insulation: 30:00/30:30/60:00/60:30/60:60/ 90:00/90:30/90:60/90:90/120:00/120:30/120:60/120:90 and 120:120

Fire rated glazing is available meeting integrity and insulation at EI130, EI160 and EI90 and integrity at E30, E60 and E120; fire rated glass doors have protection of FR30 and FR60 and integrity and insulation of EI30 and fire rated glass screens have FR30 and FR60.

We also offer fire rated glass and timber screens, lobby, foyer and atrium screens, FIRAS glazing, fire rated glazing and steel fire rated glazed doors.
