Introducing Pyroguard Firesafe; the unrivalled new range of modified toughened fire safety glass from leading manufacturer Pyroguard. Lightweight with exceptional performance benefits, this monolithic solution is designed to meet individual specification requirements and fulfills customers’ expectations on lead time and availability. 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.
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 solutions can be laminated (VF) or used in an insulated glazing unit (VI) for additional performance requirements, such as anti-attack, solar or acoustics, emphasising its multi-functional benefits. There are also VF and VI options that offer double-sided fire resistance and with large panes available (2040mm x 3600mm), it is suitable for today’s project demands in fire screens, façades and atriums.
Andy Lake, UK Sales Director at Pyroguard, commented: “Glazing plays a crucial element in the construction of modern buildings but meeting functional safety requirements should not have to compromise on design. With Pyroguard Firesafe, the monolithic toughened family of products is a cost-effective and versatile solution that will benefit our customers across both the distribution and projects markets.
“The new range offers a flexible solution that can meet varying design requirements, while offering optimum ‘Class A’ level of fire safety protection; from 30 minutes to 60 minutes (and even up to 120 minutes in some specific applications) in a wide array of thicknesses. It has been impact tested to BS EN 12600 (1C1 equivalent to Class A under BS 6206), the highest rating for safety glass, and conforms to ENS12150-1 requirements for thermally toughened soda lime silicate safety glass. Pyroguard Firesafe also meets regulatory requirements internationally and like all Pyroguard products, is tested and approved by Warringtonfire, Certifire (UK) and Efectis, France.
“Furthermore, 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. You’re in safe hands if you partner with Pyroguard.”
By manufacturing locally, Pyroguard is playing its part in reducing carbon footprint. Pyroguard Firesafe modified toughened fire safety glass is now available to order directly from the manufacturer.
