Leading independent fire safety glass manufacturer, Pyroguard, has launched a campaign to raise awareness of the multi-functional benefits its toughened fire safety glass offers. Through the informed specification of additional counterpanes, architects, specifiers and contractors can create beautiful and bespoke glazing systems, without compromising on fire safety.
As specialists in fire safety glass for over 30 years, Pyroguard now manufactures and supplies the widest range of tested and certified bespoke system solutions on the market. For architectural and construction projects that require more than just fire protection, Pyroguard’s toughened range of fire safety glass offers complete flexibility and a uniquely tailored option.
With the support of Pyroguard’s technical sales managers, customers can create a truly multi-functional fire safety glazing system. Toughened products can be combined with additional counterpanes that offer different benefits including acoustic performance, solar control, decorative or attack resistance, and be used for various applications such as façades, atria, doors, screens, partitions and spandrel panels.
Depending on the fire rating and classification level that is required, any specialist counterpane can be used in conjunction with Pyroguard Firesafe (E and EW) or Pyroguard Protect (EI). For manual attack protection, Attackguard can be used as an IGU counterpane and for smoke control, Smokeguard is the ideal solution. As every project is unique, solutions are engineered to meet each customer’s individual requirements.
Andy Lake, UK Projects Director at Pyroguard, commented: “While safety is – and remains – at the core of the Pyroguard business, we rarely see a project where fire protection is the only requirement within a glazing system. We believe that making buildings safe should not have to compromise on aesthetically pleasing design or other practical benefits, such as noise control for example, and that’s why we want to make sure that our customers are aware of the multi-functional benefits that our toughened fire safety glass offers.
“To support the campaign, we have developed a series of videos that are available to view via our website, as well as a new flyer which outlines the unique benefits of our multi-functional product. We would encourage people to take a look at these to develop an understanding of what can be achieved and to get in touch should they have any enquiries.”
Pyroguard’s team of local technical experts will work closely with customers to select the correct fire rating and classification of glass, and then provide support to build the right solution and desired finish. Pyroguard’s range of toughened products are certified for application in steel, aluminum and timber profiles and have been approved by Certifire, UK and Efectis, France, providing peace of mind for architects, specifiers, contractors and end-users.
