Applications Of Fire Resistant Glass

Glass 2

Our Fire-Resistant glass finds versatile applications across the manufacturing sector. From industrial furnaces and ovens to control rooms, material processing facilities, laboratories, and chemical manufacturing plants, our glass ensures safety without compromising visibility or style. Protect your operations while maintaining productivity and aesthetics.


  • Industrial Furnaces and Ovens: Safeguard operators and equipment from high temperatures while allowing visibility into crucial processes.
  • Control Rooms: Provide clear visibility and protection for personnel overseeing manufacturing operations.
  • Material Processing Facilities: Ensure safety during the handling of materials and processing stages, enhancing operational efficiency.
  • Laboratories: Protect personnel and sensitive equipment from potential hazards while maintaining visibility for monitoring experiments and processes.
  • Chemical Manufacturing Plants: Mitigate risks associated with chemical processes by providing a transparent barrier that withstands high temperatures and potential impacts.



FireLite is ideal for control rooms, providing clear visibility and a protective barrier, ensuring safety in monitoring manufacturing operations. With its fire-resistant properties, it can withstand high temperatures and potential impacts from machinery and equipment. However, for specific applications and requirements, it is always best to consult with a technical expert to determine the most suitable glass solution.

FireLite glass is designed for laboratory settings, offering both transparency and fire resistance, making it suitable for areas with elevated temperatures. Its durability and impact resistance also make it a reliable choice for potentially hazardous environments. However, it is important to note that FireLite may not be suitable for all types of laboratory experiments. It is best to consult with a technical expert to assess the specific needs and requirements of your laboratory before making a decision on the glass solution.

FireLite in welding stations provides a protective barrier against sparks and fire hazards, allowing for secure monitoring of welding operations. It is important to use a glass solution that can withstand high temperatures and potential impacts from welding equipment. FireLite’s unique properties make it an ideal choice for these types of environments, as it provides both transparency and fire resistance. This allows for clear visibility while also offering protection against potential hazards.

FireLite is well-suited for foundries, offering protection against high temperatures and potential fire incidents while allowing visual inspection of casting processes. Its thermal and impact-resistant properties make it a reliable choice for use in foundries, where extreme heat and heavy machinery are present. With FireLite, workers can have peace of mind knowing that their work environment is safe while also being able to closely monitor the casting process. Additionally, FireLite has been tested and approved by various regulatory bodies for its fire resistance capabilities, making it a trusted option for use in foundries.
