Fire rated range of glazing products has been expanded
Adelaide Glass Blocks is very excited to announce their expanded range of certified fire-rated products.
Late in 2013, the CSIRO released the testing results of the Pegasus range of glass blocks. Tested in accordance with AS 1530.4-2005 the CSIRO found that the Pegasus blocks achieve a fire resistance of FRL -/60/-. A rating of -/60/- makes these blocks suitable for residential and some commercial project fire rating requirements. As a result, projects requiring fire-rated walls will now have a larger range of colours and finishes to choose from including brilliant shades of blue and green as well as the classic sienna and nordica colours.
Previously, it was common practice to brick up a space in order to satisfy fire-rating requirements. The CSIRO certification opens up a new range of design and aesthetic possibilities. With a large range of colours, styles and finishes to choose from, fire-rating need not compromise on natural light or style. For projects requiring higher standards of fire rating, Adelaide Glass Blocks stocks products rated -/60/- up to 90/90/90.
