New toughened fire safety glass

Pyroguard Firesafe is the new range of modified toughened fire safety glass from Pyroguard.

This monolithic solution is designed to meet individual specification requirements and fulfills customers’ expectations on lead time and availability, the company said. Pyroguard Firesafe is manufactured in both the UK and France to effectively service the European and export markets.

Offering varying levels of fire protection (E30, EW30, E60 and EW60), with the coated range able to provide radiant heat reduction for up to 60 minutes (EW classification), Pyroguard Firesafe is easy to handle and install. The lightweight monolithic solution also provides exceptional impact resistance, unrivalled light transmission and is fully UV stable, offering a solution for applications facing high solar and ambient temperatures, according to the company.

Available in 6mm-19mm thicknesses, Pyroguard Firesafe is certified for use within steel, timber and aluminum profiles for both internal and external applications. This includes single frame, opening windows, glazed screens, curtain walls and doors, subject to local approvals.

Additionally, the products can be laminated (VF) or used in an insulated glazing unit (VI) for additional performance requirements, such as anti-attack, solar or acoustics. There are also VF and VI options that offer double-sided fire resistance, and with large panes available (2,040mm x 3,600mm) it is suitable for fire screens, facades and atriums.

Andy Lake, UK sales director at Pyroguard, said: “We are proud to be able to offer the range on unrivalled lead times too, as we can manufacture the bespoke solutions in just 10 days. However, we always recommend that technical expertise and advice is sought to ensure that you receive the correct and adequate fire protection required.”
