Fire Protective Products

Fire protective glass contains a fire-rated glazing that protects against heat and smoke and is used for door, window and partition applications in commercial and medical buildings. Glass products treated with a fire protective glazing are rated in minutes, which determines how long the glass can contain flames and prevent the fire from spreading to other areas. Fire protective glass products are also manufactured to be impact resistant and can be used in applications involving X-ray and radiation protection.

Fire Protective Glazing Solutions for Protection Against Flames and Smoke

Ray-Bar Engineering provides fire protective glazing solutions for commercial, medical and industrial applications, including shielding products. Our glass products are available in fire ratings ranging from 20 to 90 minutes and all our fire protective products, except for FireGlass 20 tempered fire glass, have passed the Hose Stream Test for resistance to thermal shock.

Our FireLite fire protective products are resistant to flames and smoke but do not provide protection from radiant heat. For applications requiring protection from smoke, flames and thermal heat transfer, view our Fire Resistive Products.

Before choosing your fire protective glass products it is always important to confirm your application’s fire rating requirements prior to submitting your quote request.

Our Fire-Lite NT and FireLite-Plus products are typically ready to ship in only 3 business days.
