Fire rated windows incorporating Forster Fuego Light frame with Pilkington Pyrostop insulated fire rated glass were installed at a chemical plant in Brooklyn, Victoria.
Forster Fuego Light is an insulated steel framing system offering fire, bullet, smoke and intruder resistance. Approved for fire resistance up to -/30/30 for sliding doors, -/60/60 for single, pair, and pivot doors, -/90/90 for single and pair doors, and -/120/120 for fixed windows, it offers an extremely cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing solution for many applications.
Available in both mild and stainless steel, Fuego Light provides a very slimline visible section with excellent strength, and is appropriate for very large panes. Mild steel sections can be treated with paint or powdercoating. Stainless steel sections are available in ratings up to 60 minutes as a linished 304 grade, and can also be painted or powdercoated for highly corrosive environments.
The complete Fuego Light range includes all hardware such as hinges, locks, handles, door seals and beadings to provide complete integration and seamless assembly. This system also integrates flawlessly with Forster Thermfix Vario fire rated curtain wall.
