US Patent for SuperLite I-W, Safety Wired Glass
SAFTI FIRST, a leading manufacturer of fire rated glazing and framing products, has a United States Patent for SuperLite I-W.  This patent covers any filming of wired glass, either applied at the manufacturing plant or in the field, to create a fire and impact safety rated product.  SuperLite I-W is the first and only safety wired glass product that meets the highest impact safety standard (CPSC 16CFR 1201 Cat. I and II) and passes NFPA 252 and 257, making it safe for use in fire doors and other assemblies in high traffic areas where it may be accidentally impacted by children and adults.  This cost effective product achieves a high safety impact rating by using a tough, fire rated film applied to the glass.  Traditional wired glass does not meet CPSC safety glazing standards.
