Technical Glass Products (TGP) of Kirkland, Wash., has added Pilkington's Pyroshield
Plus to its product offerings.
According to TGP, Pyroshield Plus is a wired glass that offers both impact
safety and fire protection. It is formed by taking traditional wired glass and
laminating it with a special interlayer to another layer of clear glass. The company
says the product meets CPSC 16CFR1201 (category 1).
"With the code changes, there has been a great demand for impact safety
alternatives to traditional wired glass," said Jerry Razwick, president of
TGP. "We are excited to be able to offer such a cost-effective solution in
Pilkington Pyroshield Plus."
Pilkington Pyroshield Plus is UL listed and has a fire rating of up to 90 minutes
in doors and up to 45 minutes in other applications.
