Fire Resistant Glazing
WHY DO I NEED BUSHFIRE RATED WINDOWS?
WHAT ARE BUSHFIRE PROTECTION MEASURES?
HOW DOES THE BUSHFIRE WINDOW WORK?
Greene Fire’s bushfire rated window system is made of aluminium vertical and horizontal frames. Our aluminium framing utilizes sustainable materials that are naturally resistant to corrosion, cracking and warping. The inside layer of the glass profile is filled with a fire resistant filler preventing the frame from failing and the glass from shattering completely. Greene Fire’s bushfire rated window systems utilise Contraflam® glass. Contraflam® contains an inter-layer that becomes opaque in the event of fire and acts as a heat shield. This helps to reduce radiant heat and is a useful feature which provides greater protection if in a bushfire situation.
Below is a brief description of what happens to the glass in the event of a fire:
Initially the fire causes the glass pane that is towards the fire-side to break due to the stress on the glass.
The interlayer, which is based on nanotechnology, begins to form an opaque insulating protective layer.
