Fire Rated Glass Products

Syracuse Glass Company stocks Fire Protection Rated Glazing Materials that are impact safety rated to comply with code requirements yet thin enough to be glazed in standard fire rated framing systems.

Syracuse Glass is a distributor of Schott Pyran Platinum products - The newest ultra-clear fire rated ceramics on the market. No Wires! No Orange Tint! No Rough Surface! No extended lead times! And no cross-continental freight cost. Additionally, Schott Pyran Platinum products are cradle-to-cradle silver level certified as  environmentally friendly.

Schott Pyran Platinum F is a 3/16" ceramic with a surface applied film that carries a Category II safety rating.
The surface applied film is durable, but abrasive materials or sharp objects will scratch it.

Schott Pyran Platinum L is a 3/8” laminated ceramic that carries a Category II safety rating. Since the lamination provides the safety function, this premium product has surfaces as durable as other glass products.

Schott Pyran Platinum is a 3/16” ceramic without an impact safety rating for use where human impact is not a concern.

These products have fire ratings from 20 to 180 minutes depending on size and installation location. Pyran F and L can be used in temperature rise doors in small sizes.

All our Schott fire rated glass products are permanently marked under a UL supervised labeling program.

1/4" Polished Wired Glass is available with a Diamond wire pattern. Wired Glass is not a safety glazing material. The Safety Glazing Section of the building code of NYS 2010 no longer contains an exemption to allow polished wire glass in code defined hazardous locations (Doors, Sidelites, etc.) All glass installed in fire rated doors or other locations defined as hazardous by the code must be safety rated

Syracuse Glass Co. can label wired glass for its fire rating upon request.

None of our fire rated products are heat barrier tested to ASTM E-119, so they are not intended for fire rated wall applications where radiant heat transfer is a concern.

See our technical documents or call our office for more information.

We’re proud to be part of the Salina Industrial Power Park, a reuse of one of Upstate New York’s great industrial facilities.

Many of our products have three numbers – the order number, line number, and piece number.  This permanent label is applied by a laser, with unique identification information from our powerful FENEVISION software. 

With this information, one can determine the exact size, exact glass make-up, the delivery date, or pricing - either by contacting our office, or from our website directly – even at a job site using a smart phone!



Our new state-of-the-art Glaston FC-500 tempering furnace makes the flattest, best looking tempered glass available anywhere! We are the second glass fabricator in the nation to install this new technology.

In addition to the full convection and precise computer controls engineered into this furnace by industry leader Glaston of Finland, we’ve added a Lite Sentry optical distortion measurement scanner. Each piece we produce is photographed and evaluated for deviation from flatness on line, in real time, and the results are immediately displayed for our furnace operators.

As a result, we can fine tune the furnace settings, and produce very flat tempered glass, even glass with high performance solar control low emissivity coatings, which are very challenging to heat evenly because of the way the coatings reflect heat energy.

We’re serious about producing high quality tempered glass. In 2002, Syracuse Glass bought a UNIGLASS full convection tempering furnace, the second in the US, and the first full convection furnace in our market area, and now also featuring a Lite Sentry scanning device. We continue to invest and improve our processes to maintain the quality advantage that we’ve earned over the years.
