The new 46" x 78" sheets join the company’s current offering, which is 30" x 60" in size. "We can now accommodate larger designs," notes Brian Brunette, Vetrotech Saint-Gobain National Sales Manager. "This gives architects more freedom to use fire-rated glazing while still meeting the fire and impact safety requirements of local building codes."
