Scheuten fire proof glass can be used in a broad scope of applications and with various solar and heat control coatings, while also security and safety laminates can be applied. Scheuten fire proof glass additionally offers architectonic freedom supplement to the exceptionally broad application scope and fire safety elements.
Our fire proof glass meets building laws and regulations, including injury prevention, in conformance with the classification NEN-EN 12600 and NEN 3569 Safety glazing in buildings. The various Scheuten fire proof glass types have dedicated specific fire resistant properties and classifications. There are three possible fire resistance classifications based on the European standard NEN-EN 13501-2: E, EW and EI.
The fire resistance of glass must always be verified by means of a test report from an independent institute appointed by the European Union. The test is always performed with the glass in the structure it is fitted in, therefore including frame and glazing material. The test report states the tested criteria (E, EW or EI), the duration achieved and in which circumstances and details was tested.
It goes without saying that both our single-glazing and Isolide® fire proof glass have CE marking. This marking indicates that the product has been tested in accordance with the European standards and methods stated above.
Glazing that has no fire resistance certificate in accordance with NEN-EN 13501-2 on the corresponding CE label does not meet the relevant standards and therefore may not be used as fire proof glass. The glass automatically complies with national legislation (NEN 6069) as soon as the glass has been tested and classified in accordance with European legislation (NEN_EN 13501-2).
