FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SAFTI FIRST INTRODUCES SUPERLITE II-XLM FIRE RESISTIVE MULTILAMINTE IN CLEAR BUTT-GLAZED WALLS UP TO 2 HOURS

 

BRISBANE, CA (December 6, 2016) – SAFTI FIRST, leading USA-manufacturer of advanced fire rated glass and framing systems, is pleased to announce the addition of SuperLite II-XLM to its growing line of fire resistive glazing products. SuperLite II-XLM is a 45 to 120 minute, hose stream tested, fire resistive multilaminante glazing that meets ASTM E-119/UL 263/NFPA 251 and CAN/ULC S101 and CPSC Cat. II (400 ft. lbs.) impact safety. It is available in large sizes and can be used in all fire rated 20/45/60/90/120 minute applications including clear fire resistive butt-glazed applications up to 2 hours without vertical mullions or spacers allowing designers to achieve truly transparent design while meeting all fire and impact safety requirements.

“Architects have specified glass for its ability to deliver unobstructed views for vision and transparency. A product like SuperLite II-XLM now allows greater design freedom. Designers can now use large, mullion-free glass in areas where fire and impact safety are required by code,” says William O’Keeffe, President and CEO of SAFTI FIRST. “Without vertical mullions or spacers, SuperLite II-XLM in 1 and 2 hour fire resistive butt-glazed wall applications enables architects to add even more transparency to any space while still meeting fire and safety requirements.”

SuperLite II-XLM can be used for interior and exterior applications with the added benefit of insulation and maximum sound reduction. It can be easily incorporated in GPX Architectural Series Framing, GPX SNAPCAP or GPX Builders Series Temperature Rise Framing for a complete fire rated assembly. SuperLite II-XLM is listed with both UL and Intertek and carries a 5 year warranty.
