Stewart Fraser Ltd - Glass Fire Doors
Glass Fire Doors
Seminar, by Stewart Fraser Ltd
Glass fire doors fulfil the same purpose as timber fire doors while also enhancing the built environment and allowing light in. As a consequence, in many locations they avoid the architect having to make a choice between fire safety and architectural appeal. This CPD covers factors to consider when addressing compliance with fire safety guidelines and Building Regulations, as well as security, accessibility and longevity.

Established in 1945, Stewart Fraser has four divisions: Trade Metal Pressings and Profiles, Architectural Entrances and Shop Fronts, Bespoke Lighting, and Pyrostyle – high-end glass fire doors and screens. Traditionally doors were good looking or fire resistant but the Pyrostyle division revolutionised the fire door market with beautiful glass fire doors fit for prestige buildings, such as The Shard and The Leadenhall Building.

Approximate duration excluding time for questions/answers: 35-40 minutes.
