TEST SUCCESS SIGNIFICANTLY EXTENDS SCOPE FOR PYROGUARD TIMBER FIRE-DOOR APPLICATIONS
Pyroguard has successfully achieved a significant increase in the test evidence and scope for Pyroguard Rapide fire safety glass into fire-door applications.
Subjected to a comprehensive and vigorous development programme, the system achieved a successful integrity and radiation (EW Classification) fire performance of 80 minutes, an over-run of 20 minutes when compared to the current test requirement.
This system’s success was not only due to the excellent performance of the glass – Pyroguard Rapide FD60 11mm, but also the application of Sealmaster’s intumescent foam glazing tape. Additionally and in conjunction with Pyroguard’s existing Certifire test evidence, any BWF Certifire door core can now be used as part of this system.
