Precision Glass Services, A Market Leader in Producing Glass Construction Projects throughout North America over the last 20 Years
Precision Glass Services Inc., headquartered in Markham, Ontario is a leader throughout Canada in Fire-Rated and Fire Resistive glazing for the construction, commercial and residential glazing sectors. A market leader second to none, in distribution of Fire Rated and Fire Resistive glazing to construction projects throughout North America. Precision Glass Services Inc., has over 75 years of combined expertise. Precision Glass Services Inc., is proud of their highly skilled support staff, installation and skilled labour. Ordinary window glass cannot withstand the high temperatures associated with a structure fire, and it will break and fall out of its frame at about 250° F, only a few minutes into a fire. On the other hand, glass that is classified as “fire-rated” for at least 45 minutes can tolerate heat in excess of 1600° F such as FireLite®.
Fire-Rated glass that has emerged isn’t technically a glass at all. In fact, it is ceramic. Ceramic has long been known for its outstanding heat tolerance, which is why you’ll find it used in everything from kitchen cooktops to car engines. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, manufacturers have developed the ability to create transparent sheets of ceramic that look like ordinary window glass. Glass ceramic (such as the FireLite® family of products) has earned fire ratings up to 3 hours.
Ceramic also is available with high impact safety ratings, making it an ideal option for high traffic areas such as busy corridors and lobbies in schools and hospitals. It can be specified in insulated units to meet energy codes for exterior applications.
Pilkington Pyrostop® used in firewalls is another classification of fire-resistive glass. These products are actually tested to the same standards as solid walls, with ratings 45 minutes to 2 hours. In addition to stopping flames and smoke, glass firewalls block the transfer of heat, similar to a fire-rated masonry wall. As little heat passes through the glass during a fire, glass fire walls can be installed from wall to wall and floor to ceiling. Both the FireLite® Family of products and Pilkington Pyrostop® are certified for use throughout North America by United Laboratories R25896.
Precision Glass Services Inc., is your one stop source for Neoceram™, (Fireplace Glass) custom-cut ceramic glass at wholesale prices. Neoceram™ is a transparent low expansion glass-ceramic with a number of outstanding features that include high resistance to thermal shock, high mechanical strength, and excellent electrical characteristics. With an almost zero thermal expansion coefficient, the applications for Neoceram™ continue to grow from Wood Stoves, Gas Fireplaces, Electric Heaters to High Tech Applications.
Neoceram™ is commonly referred to as glass but it is actually a transparent ceramic, Neoceram™ is 3/16" or 5mm thick. Ideal Solution for Woodstoves unlike annealed glass (Regular Float), Neoceram™ withstands continuous exposure to high temperatures without the fear of destruction. It is also resistant to failure due to temperature variation. It is the ideal solution for many wood stoves and fireplaces where glass panels are less than 6 inches from the flames.
Neoceram™ can take the heat! Continuous temperatures up to 1470°F (700°C) can be withstood because this ceramic has an extremely low thermal coefficient of expansion. It doesn’t run or swell at high temperatures the way normal glass does. Field Tested against Underwriters Laboratories (UL-1482) water impact test, Neoceram™ is your best choice for all of your high temperature high efficiency appliances.
As suppliers of labeled Fire-Rated and Fire Resistive Glazing materials for building applications, as well as X-Ray Lead Shielding for Radiation Protection, Fireplace replacement glass (Sheet and Cut to Size), Labeled Fire-Rated Frames up to 90 minutes.
