EI class glass fixed elements
The fixed EI glass installations came from the need of a permanent system of protection against the spread of fire, providing total transparency through installations highly resistant to fire. These glass installations are available with or without frames. The framed option of EI-classified glass is made up of a metal frame with a thermal bridge. Its insulating elements and swelling of the strips seal the holes preventing any passage of flames if significant increase in temperature occurs. The glass used, completely clear and transparent, correspond to classifications ranging from EW30 to EI120. We have several different options available, from permanent standalone installations to adjoining sliding glass, with or without fixed top glass panels. The standalone installations without separators allow greater transparency. In this case, only a silicate frame is necessary. It is possible to partition large permanent installations. Fixed EI glass installations are tested and certified by approved laboratories according to regulations. The technical and compositional characteristics vary depending on the specific requirements, with the following metallic structures available, aluminium and stainless-steel plates.
SectorsOur EI class glass fixed elements are designed with complete attention to detail. We ensure their effectiveness in case of fire risk in premises such as hospitals, commercial centres and shops, hotels, offices, and public transport stations.
