Pyroguard launches Advance glass

Fire glass specialist Pyroguard has launched Pyroguard Advance, a high-performance product featuring an innovative gel interlayer technology developed following the completion of a dedicated research, development and test programme.

Providing EW classification with a fire resistance of 30 or 60 minutes, Pyroguard says that Advance can also deliver fire protection at larger certified pane sizes, with a high tolerance to variations in glazing media.

Certified for use across a wide range of steel and timber profiles, Pyroguard Advance is available in 7mm, 8mm and 11mm thicknesses, with the 7mm option able to be cut simply and quickly by hand. It conforms to EN 14449 requirements for laminated fire safety glass and is impact tested to BS EN 12600.

Steve Goodburn, business development director at Pyroguard, said: “For our system manufacturer and fire door customers, Pyroguard Advance provides a complete range of cuttable products from one single source. It is extremely easy to process and is fully compatible with the majority of timber glazing solutions and all leading fire door systems, including composite doors.”

Pyroguard Advance is also fully tested with the wide range of intumescent seals and glazing system components from Mann McGowan, the recent addition to Technical Fire Safety Group (TFSG). Glass and seals packages are also available to purchase from Fire Glass UK, another member of TFSG, with a comprehensive suite of supporting test evidence.
