M5 Glass began production of fire rated insulating glass units after completion of testing with Pilkington’s and engaging with their external production auditors, to ensure the correct standards of production were being followed and fully supported by Pilkington’s test data.
The two core components of fire resistant units being manufactured at M5 Glass are Pyrodur and Pyrostop from Pilkington.
Both internal and external grade fire units are available.
Simon Hares, M5 Glass Centre Manager:
The addition of Fire Glass IGU manufacturing complements the existing M5. The audit process confirmed that procedures and practices required to gain certification were already in place, due to M5 Glass Centre already having both a domestic unit line as well as an oversize commercial unit line in full time production, offering a silicone seal unit too.
Pilkington Pyro products are a long standing and high performing glass range recognised worldwide. It is an important step for M5 Glass Centre to be a Pilkington Pyro Partner and receive Certification for Full time Fire IGU manufacture.
M5 Gass Centre is part of the Cornwall Glass Group, which has its head office in St Austell and 14 South West-based branches, covering the regions of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire, Bristol and now online.
