A to Z Glazing can supply and install all types of fire glass from a large range of manufacturers, please download the Comparison Chart PDF.

As we are an independent glazing organisation, we are not limited to any one manufacturer, therefore significant savings can be made when fire-resisting glass is specified.

There are two main types of fire resisting glass:-

Integrity Only

(denoted as type 'E' under BS 476 PT 22)
Heat transmitting - this glass may be a wired product, laminate, or a combination of both, which will offer protection against flame and inflammable gases for a set period of time, dependant upon the product selected. However, it does not prevent heat being transferred to the protected side, therefore will be hot to the touch.

Integrity & Insulation

(denoted as type 'E1' under BS 476 PT 22)
As well as containing flames, smoke and hot gases - as with integrity only products - this glass also delays the transfer of radiated heat.
Due to the vast range of fire glass now available the specifier can solve sound attenuation, privacy and/or security issues, without compromise to the fire safety of the installation.


Fire resistant glass will only provide full resistance when incorporated as part of a fire resistant glazed system, which must include the glass, glass seals, bedding, beads, frames and fixing detail. A system is only appropriate if it has already been tested and relevant test evidence is available.

We can provide a range of products from stock, which can be cut and ready for immediate installation, in both wired and non wired products. The production team can also supply a range of tapes and intumescent seals, together with mastic from stock for immediate dispatch.

Whatever your fire proofing needs, we will be able to provide a cost effective solution.
