08 43 18 Fire Rated Curtain Wall

When situations require fire protection while maintaining visual transparency, fire rated systems are specified.  These are the high rise solutions for fire rating requirements.  They are often used in interior applications; however they can be used in exterior applications.  When used on the exterior, the materials will often be butt-glazed or use an aluminum trim piece to offer a low maintenance solution.  Because of aluminum's low melting point, these systems are typically constructed with steel.  They can use a cladding or skin to offer a finished exterior.
