When required, the Grands Boulevards 68, allows for flame protection. It is rated in Europe for stoping flame propagation for 1/2 an hour.
Currently, there are two single number rating systems that are widely used: STC and OITC. The STC (Sound Transmission Class) rating has been in use for decades. It was originally designed to assess sound privacy for interior walls, but its use has expanded to cover virtually all types of partitions and partition elements. The OITC (Outdoor Indoor Transmission Class) rating system is relatively new, and it was designed to assess exterior partitions and partition elements exposed to traffic noise.The Grand Boulevards lines have been tested at Architectural Testing Inc. facilities, York PA.
"Grands Boulevards" 58 is rated STC 34 and OITC 29
"Grands Boulevards" 68 is unequally rated STC 44 and OITC 38
With grade 40 forced entry resistance according to ASTM F 588-07, Tested by Air-Ins Inc laboratory, the "Grands Boulevards" doors and windows are at the maximum possible grade of this classification.Download the "Grands Boulevards" Brochure
