Fire door & window partition systems specialists Aluprof and fire glass experts Pyroguard have teamed up for an ambitious testing programme for a new, cost-efficient, non-insulated, slimline fire-resistant glazing system.
The UK & European market can now reap the benefit of the new MB-45EW framing system, which has been developed and strictly tested for applications where non-insulated screens and doors are required.
Pyroguard Integrity Plus glass is the first fire glazing tested and certified for the new system delivering El 15 and EW30 fire performance along with 1B1 impact protection.
Wojciech Brozyna, MD at Aluprof UK, talked about the dilemmas in providing an effective, cost-efficient and visually pleasing solution to suit the needs of specifiers.
“We’ve had to overcome several challenges. The expertise of Pyroguard has been invaluable and by combining our efforts throughout the testing phase, we have created a solution which exceeds current safety requirements to deliver advanced protection,” he said.
Vince Crook, Technical Director at Pyroguard, referred to the fact glazing regularly plays a crucial part in modern buildings, but meeting functional safety requirements should not have to mean sub-standard aesthetics.
He said collaborating with Aluprof means they have been capable of developing a fully-accredited and certified framing solution, utilising the main characteristics of its high-performing products, these being design and 1B1-classified impact protection.
Aluprof’s extensive range of systems also feature curtain walling, sliding folding doors, commercial doors systems and a wide range of window systems, all of which are being specified more and more for residential and commercial projects in Britain and abroad.
