The Fyre-Tec™ window is a clean, precisely designed steel Horizontal Slide, Single Hung, Fixed Lite, Projected, or Casement window. Construction is roll formed steel sections with welded corners which make our products exceptionally strong and long-lasting.
All Fyre-Tec™ fire window frames are Listed by Underwriters Laboratories under the category of Door and Window Frames (GVTV). The standard used to evaluate the windows is UL 9, Fire Tests of Window Assemblies, which is a test standard which includes the test method described in ASTM E163, Standard Methods of Fire Tests Of Window Assemblies.
The Fyre-Tec™ window is the preferred design when steel fire windows are specified in building code requirements.
Automatic heat closure devices (Heat activated fusible links) are standard for all operating windows. Horizontal Sliding windows may also be equipped with a resettable device which may be activated by a fire or smoke alarm, computer or other electrical signal. They provide even greater building and occupant safety.
Fyre-Tec™ windows are also ideal as replacement windows for older buildings that are required to meet up-dated code stipulations. They are aesthetically compatible with all types of architecture and with adjacent windows and doors in the building. For replacement or new construction, the field-proven steel Fire Window is Fyre-Tec™.
Sub-frame mounting or fin system mounting kits are supplied with all windows. The sub-frame mounting system is ideal for either retrofit or new construction. The window openings may be finished out prior to the installation of the provided sub-frame and window. The fin system is designed to allow installation of the window into the construction framing and subsequent trimming to the window.
Fyre-Tec™ windows accommodate a variety of UL fire rated glazing. All Fyre-Tec windows are offered factory glazed with 1/4” (45 minute labeled) wire glass as standard.
