Introduces New Fire Protection Glass in the US
Pilkington has expanded its Fire Protection Glass product range
to include a new 20-minute Pilkington PyrodurTM product. The new
product, Pilkington Pyrodur 20-104, has been tested and listed for
fire protection by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Pilkington Pyrodur
20-104 is available in a thickness of 7mm and can be cut and stocked
by local glazing contractors for immediate delivery.
According to the company, Pilkington Pyrodur blocks approximately
90-per cent of the radiant heat and holds in place during a fire
to protect against smoke, flames and hot gasses. This isolates the
fire, which shields the non-fire side from the blaze, reducing damage
and allowing time for safe escape and protection for fire fighters
and rescue workers. The product can be used for interior applications
and is ideal for windows and doors.
Pilkington also offers Pilkington Pyrodur 20-200 in a thickness
of 10mm and a complete product range of Pilkington Pyrostop Fire
Resistance Glass products for 45, 60, 90 and 120 minutes of fire
resistance. All Pilkington Pyrostop and Pilkington Pyrodur products
are tested and listed by UL.
Pilkington Pyrostop products pass the required hose stream test
and meet CAT II impact safety requirements. Pilkington Pyrodur 20-104
meets CAT I and Pilkington Pyrodur 20-200 meets CAT II impact safety
All Pilkington Pyrostop and Pilkington Pyrodur products are fabricated
in Toledo, Ohio from stock made in Germany. The products are available
in the United States through Technical Glass Products (TGP). For
