Technical Glass Products (TGP), based in Kirkland, Wash., has
announced that its genuine hardwood framing has now achieved a
glass wall fire-rating of 60 minutes. The new listing from Underwriters
Laboratories allows the framing to contain individual glass lites
in sizes up to 31 square feet, since the product successfully
passed testing as a barrier to heat transfer.
The hardwood series features an engineered core for dimensional
stability and a thick hardwood face. Frames are available in a
wide variety of wood species and come in complete packages.
