Introducing the Fireframes Designer Guard™ System–The New Standard in School Safety

ADVERTSEMENT To meet the growing need for safer school and institutional environments, Technical Glass Products (TGP), a brand of Allegion, introduces the Fireframes Designer Guard™ System. The multifunctional system is the first fire-rated full-lite glass door system in North America certified to forced entry standards. All components have been system tested together to ASTM E2395, the industry benchmark for forced-entry resistance, and Intertek certified to verify all components perform as intended. To meet the dual need for life safety, the Fireframes Designer Guard System is available with fire ratings up to 60 minutes. It is ideal for school applications, detention centers, institutional buildings and anywhere a security- and fire-rated door system is required.

The Fireframes Designer Guard System consists of a die-rolled steel profile swinging door with sidelite(s) and emulates the appearance of a narrow-profile aluminum storefront. Its durable welded steel frame features precise edges and a professional finish. Glazing consists of FireLite Plus® Forced Entry IGU, a laminated fire-rated glass ceramic that provides impact safety and forced-entry resistance. With narrow frame profiles, clear fire-rated glazing and system specific components, the Fireframes Designer Guard System provides a seamless aesthetic with adjacent non-fire-rated doors. Combining fire safety, security and high design in one product, it is a turnkey solution for building and design professionals working to bolster safety in school and institutional projects.
