Pilkington has launched two new butt-jointed glazing systems as part of its Pilkington Pyroclear range.
Produced using Pilkington’s Pyroclear advanced toughened glass, the new 30-minute and 60-minute integrity only systems have been developed to offer floor-to-ceiling fire resistance.
Developed to meet integrity requirements (BS EN 13501-2), the 30-minute system (BS EN 1364) has been tested to demonstrate that it can provide a fully unobstructed view, without the use of any button fixings between panes.
The 60-minute integrity system with button-fixings (BS 476) offers an increased period of reliable basic fire protection.
The Pilkington Pyroclear Line is used extensively by fabricators working in commercial office space, where fire-resistant frameless glass partitioning is becoming increasingly popular as a design feature.
Offering end-users advanced levels of fire safety, Pilkington Pyroclear Line 30-603 and Pyroclear 60-603 can be used in full height screen applications at a current maximum individual pane width of 1.4m.
The products are supplied with all associated materials including sealant, glazing tape and fixings.
