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 area."
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.
