Fixed glazed screens can be provided in many guises, which enables the specifier to meet the design intent in tandem with the fire ratings needed. A firm favourite is butt jointing, which relies solely on head and base tracks with no glass to glass mullions. If a more structured aesthetic is required, FireStop can be formatted to include vertical mullions and horizontal transoms. This added framing also enables the system to be certified at an unprecedented 120/120 minutes (integrity and insulation) using 58mm thick Planet FireGlass.

The insulated and thermally broken steel framework of the FireStop system is polyester coated to any RAL or BS colour. Ironmongery options are vast and include lever handles, pull handles and also automatic hold open devices. Manifestation and other design options can be applied to the glass, in order to further enhance the look of the system.
Offering up to 60/60 minutes (integrity and insulation), single, double or ‘leaf and a half’ options are available, in partial or full height sizes. Doors can either be held open, on devices that close in the event of an alarm (ideal in heavy circulation zones), free swinging, or latched closed for added security.
