The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is ready to cover various aspects of fire glazing at the FIREX show taking place on the 19th to 21st June at London ExCel at stand A475.

In consideration of Grenfell Tower, the presentation on “Fire-rated Glazing – Getting It Right, Getting it Wrong” will discuss and the importance of how glass plays its part in the fire strategy of a building.

This informative and educational presentation will highlight the best practice guidance on multiple components of a fire-resistant glazing system and how building contractors, designers, architects and specifiers should combine to achieve the required fire-performance.

Adrian Blaydon, GGF Technical Officer and Secretary of the Fire Resistant Glazing Group (FRGG) explained “By attending this presentation, you will gain appreciation of the role a buildings fire-resistant glazing plays and how vital it is to combine the appropriate materials along with the correct installation process to certify and achieve the desired fire-resistant rating.”

The unique discussion will focus on how non fire-rated glass products react in a fire situation, depicting how they are likely to fail spontaneously or within a short amount of time. This exclusive presentation will touch upon the types of fire rating required including glass, glazing seals and much more.

The presentation takes place at 16:30 on Wednesday 20th June at the theatre in ExCel London, please allow 15 minutes before the session is due to begin.
