Globally specified for its fire protection performance, the benefits of Pyroguard fire resistant glazing extend far beyond this – addressing a number of other key specification considerations in the use of fire glass for internal and external applications.
Manufactured by CGI International in the UK, Pyroguard delivers:
- Impact performance
Fire resistant glazing is typically required in areas deemed at risk of impact in the Building Regulations. All Pyroguard products are classified as at least 3B3 (according to BS EN 12600: 2002) with several products from the range providing access to 1B1 rated fire glass – the highest possible impact safety rating.
- Sound reduction
Pyroguard simultaneously satisfies fire protection and sound performance requirements by offering high levels of acoustic control. All Pyroguard products are subjected to sound insulation testing with some able to achieve a reduction of up to 45dB.
- Thermal insulation
The proven insulating properties which make Pyroguard a market-leading fire glass solution also provide excellent thermal performance with all products achieving Document L compliant U-values.
