Fire -Resistant Glass
Polished wired glass is the most common type of fire-resistant glass used in North America for the last century. It is typically rated for 45 minutes in lite sizes up to 9 square lites in doors with temperature-rise criteria. It is less expensive than glass ceramic, but since 2006 the International Building Code (IIBC) has prohibited its use in hazardous locations in all facility types because of its low impact resistance. Glass ceramic, on the other hand is a wireless product similar in appearance to ordinary window glass. This glass provides fire ratings from 20 minutes to 3 hours. Glass Ceramics withstand the thermal shock of water from fire hoses or sprinklers. (http://www.fireglass.com/resources/reference-tools/faq/ (June 21, 2022)
