New GGF fire safety campaign

To address concerns with fire safety glazing systems the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) Fire Resistant Glazing Group (FRGG) has developed a five point code of core governing principles for all glass and glazing system products for resistance to fire.

The code identifies the following core principles: - The glazed element must be tested as an applicable system - The system must be correctly installed - The main components must be produced to a defined product specification - The manufacturer must operate an appropriate production quality control system - The scope of application of the glazed system must be backed up by an independent third party certification scheme The FRGG is committed to the development and advancement of best practice in the manufacture, testing, specification, application and installation of fire-resistant glazed systems.It sees the code as an important step in addressing concerns such as weak compliance with regulations and the use of untested substitute systems.
