There are few situations that pose a greater risk to personal safety than the outbreak of fire. Greene Fire can provide various life-saving fire resistant glazing solutions that will not only keep people safe, but will protect the building itself and its occupants. Fire rated glass protects against fire, smoke and hot, toxic gases, our glass is available in a number of options, such as FRL and framing options to suit every building application – including heritage steel frame or frameless options for seamless architectural integration.

Fire rated glass solutions:

  • Contraflam – Insulation: radiant heat reduction for between 30 and 120 minutes

In one of our recent completed projects, The Hub, we installed the Contraflam frameless glass solution to provide fire, security and acoustic control between levels 3, 4 and 5. The installed fire rated glass is 31mm thick glass and consisted of 5 layers with 1300mm wide x 2740mm high panes which weigh between 200 and 230kgs each. For further information please see our case study of The Hub Martin Place, NSW.
