Adelaide Glass Blocks is very excited to announce we have expanded our range of certified fire-rated products.
Late in 2013, the CSIRO released the testing results of the Pegasus range of glass blocks. Tested in accordance with AS 1530.4-2005 the CSIRO found that the Pegasus blocks achieve a fire resistance of FRL -/60/-. As a result, projects requiring fire-rated walls will now have a larger range of colours and finishes to choose from.
Previously, it was common practice to brick up a space in order to satisfy fire-rating requirements. The CSIRO certification opens up a new range of design and aesthetic possibilities. With a large range of colours, styles and finishes to choose from, fire-rating need not compromise on natural light or style.
Below is just a few of the glass blocks that can now be used on the boundary.
