FIREGLASS – FireLite Plus

FireLite Plus® is a nominal 5/16″ (8 mm) thick laminated glazing material listed for use in doors, sidelites, transoms and borrowed lites. FireLite Plus is available in two different surface conditions for clear viewing, premium grade and standard grade. We can also supply FireLite products with a Satin Etch when an obscure surface is required.

FireLite Plus consists of two pieces of FireLite glass ceramic laminated together. Because FireLite is made from transparent glass-ceramic, it differs in color from float glass. FireLite appears to have a warmer earth tone when compared to the blue green tint of typical float glass. However, like float glass, FireLite ceramic will not demonstrate a highly perceptible color once installed in a frame.
