An elegant and cost effective way to provide a frameless fire rated glass screen up to 30 Minute Fire Integrity and 30 Minute Fire Insulation (30/30).
Our system provides the same minimalist look of a Frameless partition, with the following parameters, when a door is included:
- Each Door leaf is 1981mm high, with a glazed overpanel.
- The minimum ceiling height is 2260mm.
- The door leaf must be carried within an aluminium frame.
- The door leaf must be fitted with a lever lockset and overhead door closer.
- There must be at least 300mm width of glass to either side of a door position.
This system can be rated at 30 Minute Fire Integrity and 30 Minute Fire Insulation (30/30) if a door is not required. This gives enormous flexibility and allows to you to create a minimalistic, fire rated glass screen.
Use our calculator to get a quick price, it’s more expensive than standard glazing but we’re confident that you’ll be pleasantly surprised at this low cost option.

All of these considerations dictate the type of system we offer. The images are for illustration only and show a selection of the partitions we can offer, dependent on fire rating.
As a very bespoke product we will need your dimensions and fire rating requirement. We offer simple budget pricing on the site but we strongly recommend that you request a formal quotation to ensure we offer the correct system for the job.
