What does the Fire Resistant Level (FRL) indicate?

The FRL consists of a numbered sequence that represents consecutively the structural, integrity and insulation rating (Structural/Integrity/Insulation). For example: -/60/- would represent a 60 minute integrity only.

If you are given a 90/90/90 rating this specifies a structural component in addition to an integrity and insulation requirement. This rating applies to the structural element, not the fire rated glazing system. Top

There are a number of options depending on your circumstance that can potentially reduce the cost. Examples include opting for fixed window configurations over operable configurations or reducing the height and width of your windows. For further information please contact us at the office.  Top
