Creating light-filled and open environments conducive to patient well-being and healing is important in modern healthcare facility design, but there is also the issue of safety. How can healthcare facility design support occupant well-being while ensuring patients, healthcare professionals and first responders can safely exit the building and work to extinguish flames during a fire event? This presentation will take a look at real-world examples to understand how current fire-rated glazing solutions are addressing the demand for safer healthcare facilities.
