We will touch upon all environments where fire-resistant glazing systems can be used; fixed internal screens, fire doors, and external systems.

Event details: Our presentation lasts approximately three hours; and will include videos of how non fire-resistant glasses react in a fire test, as well as the testing of glasses providing a barrier against the passage of flame and heat.
