Re: Area above an FD30 door. Can you have a fire rated glass window panel ? If so, what material could you use to frame the glass?

Hi. We would love to let some light through into a room but adding a glass panel window above an FD30 door. It therefore has to be fire rated. Any pointers on how to make this compliant ? materials to use etc ?

Thank you :D

The fire resistance of that panel is determined by the wall it sits in. To determine the fire resistance standard will require knowing the location of that wall. In a dwelling house or a flat? one, two three storeys? On a protected route? Like everything these days, there are no easy answers!
