Why fire-rated Glass?

Due to the Grenfell disaster of 2017 and subsequent amendment to Part B of the Building Regulations, laminated glass is no longer permitted on high-rise residential balconies and terraces over 11 metres. As a result, architects and developers have since had to find other materials to construct balconies, such as steel. Despite complying with the new regulations, these alternatives did not always offer as much aesthetic appeal.

Laminated safety glass was previously prohibited because of the interlayer between its individual glass counterpanes. When the interlayer melts, flammable liquid droplets may form, which can fall to the balcony and floor below, spreading the fire to other materials, and allowing the fire to spread further. PVB is commonly used as this interlayer, which can melt in extreme heat and form flammable liquid droplets.



Due to recent developments in the market, glass can once again be used in these applications as a design solution. Of course, housebuilders and developers must take into consideration several factors to ensure the job is done safely.

The BS EN 12600 standard requires any glass installed to be impact-resistant, in addition to fire-resistant. The high-rise residential setting makes it imperative to ensure residents’ safety. The glass is first and foremost a safety product before it is aesthetically pleasing or architecturally valuable, so certain line load requirements must be met. In the event that someone leans on the glass or worse, falls into the balcony, it is crucial that the glass remains intact.

What is the difference between the Clearview A2 Balconies and all Neaco’s other glass balconies?
The Building Safety Act states that laminated glass is not to be used on high rise buildings above 18m as it is deemed to be combustible. Our Clearview A2 Glass is A2 Fire Rated, specifically manufactured for high rise buildings based on the new law.
What if the glass breaks?
In the event of one of the toughened glasses breaking in the fire-resistant glass balustrade panel, the fragments of glass will stay adhered to the interlayer and will not fall off. Under normal circumstances, the unit itself will maintain rigidity, such that it will not collapse out of the balustrade construction under its own weight.
How is this laminated glass still classed as fireproof?
The glass is laminated with a fireproof interlayer made from a nanocomposite silica.
How is the laminated glass fireproof?
The glass is laminated with a fireproof interlayer made from a nanocomposite silica.
Why do the edges of the glass require an aluminium U-Profile?
Due to the nature of the glass, the glass has a 13mm border which must be shielded from direct UV with an appropriate U channel.
What is the warranty of this product?
Neaco Ltd. warrants that, subject to Requirements of Proper Handling and Installation, if properly installed in the agreed framing structure to protect the sealed edges the warranty period is 10 years. The failure of the product under this warranty must occur within the applicable warranty period. Proof of date of purchase of the product must be provided with any claim.
