Fully glazed screens or partitions are often used within open plan buildings to separate offices and corridors, optimising natural lighting opportunities. Fully glazed screens or partitions may need to be fire rated. 

Such designs are extensively used in hospitals, universities and school buildings. 

Often installation is required on short notice at near completion of the build, resulting in short lead times for materials and build.

Promat works closely with screen and partition manufacturers and installers to deliver the most appropriate glass for the requisite fire rating as well as meeting aesthetic, acoustic and safety needs. 

Project Considerations 

  • Building Regulations for fire rated glass 
  • Acoustic requirements
  • Safety regulations for glass
  • Line load requirements especially where partitions are classed as a barrier or to protect a difference in height

Promat Support 

Promat can assist and support manufacturers and installers throughout the design and install process, including: 

  • Advice on the most appropriate fire rated glass to be used 
  • Ability to calculate UDL and line loads for the different glasses
  • Quoted lead times can be relied upon as all glass products are UK manufactured.
