SAFTI FIRST to Debut New Product at the 2006 AIA Expo in Los Angeles

SAFTI FIRST, a manufacturer of fire rated glazing and framing, is planning to introduce three new products at the 2006 AIA Expo in Los Angeles, to be held June 8 to 10, 2006. One of the new products the company is introducing is SuperLite II-XL, a fire rated, artistic, transparent wall system that brings light into a structure and makes an artistic statement. This enhanced aesthetic in fire rated glass opens up the option of using custom art glass in walls, corridors and other applications requiring protection from fire, smoke and radiant heat. According to the company, this technology is especially beneficial to design and building professionals involved in the healthcare, education and hospitality markets.

"This is an exciting time in the industry when aesthetics and technology are combined without loss of performance or function," says Kathryn O'Keeffe, vice president of sales and marketing.

SuperLite II-XL is a fire resistive, technologically advanced, patented glazing product using tempered glass units filled with fire-retardant gel. According to Safti First, this provides the highest level of fire protection and design flexibility with the added benefit of sound reduction. Fire ratings are offered from 45-120 minutes, provide maximum radiant heat protection and meet hose stream, pressure, and thermal shock requirements. The product is fully tempered and not subject to wall area limitations. Applications are windows, wall systems, side or transom lites, full vision doors and door lites. All available with a variety of framing options and finishes.
