VDS precision engineered steel frames and doors are custom fabricated in the US. These specially made fire-resistant doors provide a barrier to radiant and conducted heat and complement our CONTRAFLAM fire rated glazing products.
VDS® LITE is a narrow style framing system that meets fire ratings om 20 to 90 minutes. This non-insulated system provides architects with modern and innovative design opportunities where a fire rating is required.
Pyroswiss was first tested in 1981, quickly becoming the original, clear, specially tempered, and impact safety glass for 20-minute fire-rated doors.
In the event of a fire Pyroswiss provides an effective barrier against the passage of smoke, flames, and hot toxic gases. By remaining transparent and fully intact, the glazing allows people to make their escape and rescue services to be fully aware of any impending danger.
