Fire Resistant Glass Market Segmented By type such as laminated, wired, tempered, and ceramic with material such as E-class, EW-class, EI-class
Fire resistant glass is a safety glass primarily used for protection from fire, smoke, and heat. Now a days, usage of glazed screens is increasing for aesthetic purposes and more safety with comfort. But the glazing must be fire resistant complying with the government regulations made for different end uses such as commercial building and offices.
Mostly fire resistant glasses are used where building regulations stipulate a specific level of fire resistance and where the people demand natural light and clear visibility such as hospitals, hotels, restaurants, office buildings, computer rooms, schools, stores, shopping centers, airports, industrial buildings, warehouses, and laboratories.
The characteristics of the fire resistant glasses such as clarity that provides good vision without distortion, safety from fire, sound reduction, specific and customized small and large sizes, compatibility with other type of glasses, fire screens and doors, offer multiple advantages over other types of safety glasses.
Fire resistant glass is a valuable safety product used across various end-use industries such as buildings and construction, marine, transportation, and defense. Upsurge in different end-use products demand & industrial development is crucial factors boosting the demand for fire resistant glass, in turn, propelling the overall growth of global fire resistant glass market.
Especially, the usage of fire resistant glass became prevalent in modern building design mostly across the commercial and residential buildings sector as increasing norms demands fire resistant glazing for publicly accessible buildings. This drives the demand of fire resistant glass all over the world.
Government organizations have introduced multiple safety standards to be followed by manufacturers, regarding specific type of fire resistant glasses. This is one of the restraints for global fire resistant glass market. Also, it is difficult to get the right type of glass for particular applications and replacement of the broken glasses for specific frames, screens, and materials
