fire-rated aluminum storefront vision walls

Aluflam's fixed storefront vision wall frames are constructed from thermally broken narrow aluminum extrusions filled with a proprietary fire blocking material. They are available in a 60 minute rating for interior and exterior installation. Vision wall products are fully tested and listed by Underwriters Laboratories to UL 263 and UBC 7-4 (1997) standards. All Aluflam fire-rated products are MEA approved for use in the City of New York.


Aluflam frames are factory finished and fabricated complete before delivery — reducing installation and glazing to a conventional task. The clear fire-rated glazing is manufactured by Vetrotech Saint Gobain. Glazing conforms to CPSC 16CFR1201 (CAT I & II) standards for impact while providing excellent clarity and sound reduction.

  • Increased design freedom
  • Large, wire-free glass areas
  • Energy efficient
  • Can be integrated with Aluflam's fire-rated doors
  • Available in anodized, powder coat and architectural finishes

A popular option for glazing Aluflam vision walls is the Contraflam Structure butt joined glazing, where multiple panels of fire-rated glass can be joined together by means of a unique fire-rated silicone joint. This mullion-less design is available for interior wall systems.
