Komfort have a continued commitment to provide specialised solutions to meet the most stringent fire and safety regulations for commercial and industrial buildings. Our fire rated glass partitions and fire screens enable designers and installers to maximise the potential of a space while still adhering to all fire safety regulations. We offer both Polar Single Glazed and Polar Double Glazed fire rated partitioning achieving up to 30/30 fire rating for the glass, as well as specialist Fire Screens providing up to 2 hours of fireproof integrity.
Fire Rated Glass Partitions
Komfort can design and manufacture fire rated glass partitioning that can remain intact against fire, achieving a fire rating of up to 30/30. This level of protection helps prevent the spread of fire through a building and aid evacuation. This type of partitioning offers what is known as passive fire protection. This means it is able to continue functioning as it was designed when exposed to fire. It is critical that all aspects of any fire-rated partitioning, function as they should from the glass itself to how it is fixed. All of these systems are designed to the highest specification and fully tested and accredited as fire resistant.
Our fire rated glass partitioning meets very high standards of fire safety but also offers a flexible design solution for dividing a workspace or public area.
Single and Double Glazed – Framed and Frameless Fire Rated Partitions
Our Polar single glazed partitioning is available in straight lines, faceted or curved depending on your requirements. This system is quick to install without any compromise on form or function. It is available up to 2800mm in height. The fire rating is 30/30 for screen glass, this means this partitioning maintains integrity for 30 minutes against fire, it will stop smoke and fire entering that part of the building. The second 30 refers to insulation against the heat generated during a fire and how it can keep that at bay for 30 minutes.
Our Polar double glazed partitioning looks stunning and brings added durability with it. Polar double also offers 30/30 fire protection for the screen glass and is also available up to 2800mm height.
Glass Fire Screens
For further insulation, our fire screens offer up to 2 hours protection and can be fitted along with our doors and glass partitions. These will fit seamlessly into your design while subtly offering protection against fire.
Fire Ratings – Explained
Fire protection is a critical part of any type of building and interior design, especially in a commercial setting. Fire ratings are used for many different things including doors and non-load bearing elements like glass partitions. The rating is normally shown as two numbers with a / in-between as mention above. Essentially the first number is a number showing the integrity and the second is insulation. As mentioned above the first is showing how long fire can be held back and the second is how long the effects of the fire can be held back. Different ratings are used in different applications from offices to shopping centres and more. If you would like to discuss fire ratings and what you may need for your project then please get in touch with our experienced team.
Fire Rated Partitioning Case Study
The brief for this project was to deliver very high levels of fire safety. With the intent of meeting performance requirements, Komfort’s glazed Firescreens were installed in the reception area. Komfort’s technical and project management teams worked closely with the design team to provide a solution to fully glaze the reception area from floor to ceiling.
Our specialist internal glazing and firescreens provide a fire rating of up to 2 hours, along with sound and structural performance.
