This paper presents and discusses the results of temperature measurements inside the profiles of aluminium glazed partition walls during fire resistance tests. In typical fire resistance tests, attention is paid to what happens on the unheated surface of the specimen, whereas this article presents the results of measurements carried out inside the specimen. For this purpose, six fire resistance tests of aluminium glazed partition walls of different heights (from 3 to 6 m) were carried out over the years. The main objective of the tests was to verify the influence of the wall height on its fire resistance, and one of the parameters tested, extensively discussed in this article, was the temperature inside the mullion profiles.
