Fire safety is a hugely important aspect in both new construction and refurbishment of buildings. The requirements might seem restrictive but they are entirely necessary and with OAG’s experience in using glass as a fire barrier we can help you plan an awe-inspiring structure that meets all the regulations, which are outlined in BS/EN9999 parts 1 and 2.
We can advise on framed and frameless systems, as well as glass fire doors, OAG also has extensive experience relating to tested glass systems from ‘Integrity only E30’ through to ‘EI120 Integrity and Insulation’.
Your fire strategy engineer or district surveyor will provide the required rating for the glass in your designs and from there we can help you refine your plans and manage costs while still delivering a safe building.
For framed screens, the fire protection rating will influence whether you choose a steel framed curtain wall, a bead fixed glazed system, or an aluminium one. If a frameless look is required, we can offer steel perimeter framing with silicone glass-to-glass joints. Most fire doors require an outer frame and we are happy to advise on the options.
