Fire Resistant Glass for Hospitals

A Hospital: A haven of safety.

A centre for care. Designing one calls for the highest standards of security compliances.  Which is why, fire-safe glass comes as the best panacea for hospitals. How else can one counter the inadequate emergency equipment, abundant hazardous material, machines running on high power and centralized air conditioning that place hospitals at a high risk of spreading fire?

So, what makes glass a safe bet in the unfortunate outbreak of a fire? Consider this. More than any other material, glass offers unparalleled visual security. The very fact that one detect fire early and can also see through in case of an accident makes glass the preferred option. Also with occupants in a hospital having little/no mobility and unaware of impending dangers especially at night, glass makes it possible to easily evacuate them and ensure that no one is left behind. The National Building Code (NBC) has also sounded the fire-alarm by mandating passive fire safety requirements in tall buildings (relevant to hospitals as well) through its Category C1, clauses 3.4, 4 and 6.3.

At Saint-Gobain, there is a glass for every class, and every category. Vetrotech Saint-Gobain is a business unit of the SGG Group that is dedicated exclusively to fire-resistant glass. Bringing three decades of expertise in high-performing fire resisting glass, we are the first to combine clear vision optics and human impact safety.
