Snoqualmie, Wash., June 8, 2010 — To provide more options for fire-rated glazing that meets demanding aesthetic design requirements, Technical Glass Products (TGP) introduces ultraHD™ Technology – a new manufacturing process that improves the color, clarity and surface quality of its entire line of FireLite® ceramic glass products. The ultraHD Technology improves the overall clarity of each glazed lite for enhanced viewing and creates a smoother surface by reducing slight imperfections that can result during glass production.

It also reduces the visible color in transparent glass ceramic, which otherwise has an earth tone compared to the blue-green tint of typical float glass. The end result is superior glazing that meets both design and life safety requirements.
“Design professionals don’t want to compromise on aesthetics like color and clarity when using glazing to meet fire-safety codes,” says Jeff Razwick, vice president, Technical Glass Products. “FireLite has been the industry standard in fire-rated glazing for many years, and with the ultraHD Technology, it ties in even better where a crystal-clear view is important.”
FireLite products with ultraHD, including FireLite, FireLite Plus, FireLite NT and FireLite IGU, are available in two different surface conditions to meet specific design needs – premium grade and standard grade.
