Their increased strength makes Fort™ and FortPlus™ suitable for many structural applications including balustrade panels. Four to five times stronger than ordinary glass. Geze Glass Design and door fittings from other major manufacturers. conforming to the requirements of BS 6206 Class A.hansen glass processors Fort™. Four decades of proven manufacturing success. Provide Class A safety impact performance to BS 6206 for use in all critical locations. This makes Fort™ and FortPlus™ four to five times stronger than ordinary glass of the same thickness. and they break safely. blunt edged fragments which reduces the risk of injury and can also be held in place with a laminate interlayer. available in cast-in-place and pvb laminated versions. Kite marked products. Standard door blanks and fully fitted assemblies are available utilising Dorma Glass. Available in a wide range of glass types from all the major basic glass manufacturers. For additional safety characteristics. Can be used in ThermoSpan™. Product Description Fort™ and FortPlus™ are manufactured by heating to around 620oC and quenching rapidly to create high compressive stresses at the surfaces with balancing tensile stresses in the centre. Supported by a comprehensive technical advisory service to give guidance on optimum use of the products. Available as heat soaked toughened glass for added confidence in use. 3 . utilising a range of thicknesses from 4mm to 25mm. FortPlus™ Laminated gives additional safety characteristics. Highly resistant to temperature changes and temperature differentials – ideal for use where there are thermal stress requirements. Single toughened glass breaks safely into small. full height glazed partitions and ThermoSpan™ structural glazing. Fort™ and FortPlus™ heat soaked toughened glass are available for use in ThermoSpan™ structural glazing and where otherwise specified.
