FireLite has been tested, and survived unchanged, for fire resistance test times longer than 4 hours’ exposure. FireLite is ideal for use with sprinklers, because of its inherent resistance to thermal stress. FireLite is a 5 mm clear ceramic glass specifically developed to provide robust and stable fire-resistance – an effective integrity fire-resistant glazing for transparent fire protection in a variety of architectural applications.
5mm integrity fire-resistant ceramic glass, stable at high temperatures and against heat stress and water quench.

5mm FireLite with a surface film for impact safety, class 2(B)2 to BS EN 12600.
Double glazed options using FireLite.
11mm and 15mm special laminate for enhanced acoustic attenuation.
FireLite Fire Resistant Ceramic Glass
The ideal integrity fire-resistant glazing The physical containment of flames and smoke, and the safe escape of occupants separated from fire, are key considerations for designers and fire safety advisers acting on behalf of building owners and users alike, especially in considering suppression and firefighting actions. FireLite provides reliable basic integrity resistance for the physical containment of flames and smoke. That capability can be depended upon even under prolonged fire exposure, also when there is a likelihood of water quenching from sprinklers or firefighter hose streams (both realistic considerations in building fires).
FireLite is a glazing combining the transparency of glass with special ceramic properties to provide excellent resilience to thermal stress. Like all common glass products, ceramic glass has a slight tint which can be seen when handling the glass, looking at the edge into the glass body. FireLite shows a distinctive but slight warm sunrise tone, which can be used to identify the ceramic glass, without concerns. But, as for float glass, FireLite does not show a perceptible colour when installed in a frame.
