Testing glass with fire: Watch fire-rated glass stand up to the heat
Introducing part one of our “Tough as Glass” series. Glass is an incredibly strong material. It can withstand extreme temperature swings and last years without warping. Every sheet of technical glass you encounter must ace a rigorous series of tests to prove it’ll hold up in the real world. And this is especially the case with fire-rated glass-ceramic windows and doors.

Over the years IR technology has achieved step-change improvements in defense applications. Now IR technology is spreading to a number of new applications.
