Introduction

Fitting THERM-A-GLAZE 60 to a fire door

THERM-A-GLAZE 60 has been developed to provide a reliable 60 minute glazing system for timber fire doors. Timber doors present particular problems in 60 minute applications using uninsulated glass due to the high temperature of the glass and the erosion of the door and beads during a fire test.

Description

THERM-A-GLAZE 60 is a unique set of seals which has been developed for 60 minute glazing applications to satisfy the demand for a completely dry system. The seal between the glass and the bead is THERM-A-BEAD and the seal around the perimeter of the aperture is THERM-A-LINE.

Application

THERM-A-GLAZE 60 is designed to provide fire resisting protection to glazed openings in timber fire doors in conjunction with suitable fire resisting glass and timber glazing beads.

Description

THERM-A-GLAZE 60 is a one hour glazing system comprising of the following components:

  • THERM-A-LINE – a specially formulated intumescent with erosion resistant qualities.
  • THERM-A-BEAD – a moderate expansion phosphate based intumescent contained in a pvc sleeve designed to give a pleasing finish and which expands in a fire to partially cover the beads providing extra protection from radiant heat.
