InterEdge Expands Production of Fire Rated Glazing
to North East
InterEdge Technologies has announced the UL certification of the AFG Fall River
branch to produce and distribute non-wired PyroEdge 20 and Scott
Pyran ceramic glazing. According to Tim Andersen, Sales Manager,
"all order will be turned around in 7-10 days or less and will
be delivered at no cost to customers in AFG Fall River's service
All InterEdge products have been tested to the "positive pressure"
standards mandated by the 2003 IBC codes, which affects construction
in the majority of the United States. Additional plants for the
20-minute PyroEdge include Hebron, OH, Phoenix, AZ, Waukesha, WI
and Orlando, FL. Currently, Hebron, OH also fabricates and labels
Scott Pyran products.
To service customers the Company will ship within seven days of
receipt of purchase order-faster if necessary. All glass is cut
to size and labeled prior to shipment. All glazing is certified
to meet the highest levels of safety mandated by U.S. local, regional,
state and federal codes.
Twenty-minute PyroEdge fire rated glazing is normally used in corridor
doors and sidelites for new construction and renovations. Schott
Pyran has UL ratings up to 90 minutes and includes doors, transoms,
sidelites and borrowed lites. In addition, PyroEdge-20 and Scott
Pyran are approved as a replacement for wired glass where aesthetics,
higher levels of impact or adoption of new codes require such use.
InterEdge Technologies, a subsidiary of AFG Industries, was founded
in 1999 to service the fire rated glazing needs of contract glaziers
in North America. In addition to the PyroEdge and Schott Pyran products,
it also fabricates and sells Pyrobel fire resistant products manufactured
by Glaverbel of Seneffe, Belgium. Pyrobel products, are dubbed as
the "Tri-Safe" products, since they offer the combination
of human impact safety, fire safety and safety from the hazards
of radiated and convective heat transfer. Ratings for Pyrobel run
from 45-minutes through 2-hours. The Vision 60, a butt-glazed, 1-hour,
transparent wall system has become a favorite among architects and
designers seeking an open, unobscured vision area.
