Schiphol Airport, The Netherlands

With thousands of people passing through international airports on a daily basis, ensuring their safety through products like fire safety glass is essential.


Commissioned by BAM Infra Netherlands (Civil Region) and in collaboration with Arcadis (from ProRail), Glasdesign recently provided Schiphol Plaza (Royal Schiphol Group) with a glass entrance to the underground station featuring Pyroguard’s toughened fire safety glass, ensuring the future safety and protection of rail passengers.

Speaking about the project, Sander Pieters, CEO from Glasdesign said “We opted for Pyroguard Protect EI60/32-2 SWS, as this was best option in terms of size, thickness and fire performance. Working with Pyroguard has been a smooth process, with their excellent technical support and great communication”.


Pyroguard Protect is our range of toughened fire safety glass which provides integrity and heat insulation for 30 to 120 minutes (EW Classification) and 30 to 180 minutes (EI Classification). The solutions provide 1B1 impact classification offering high performing acoustic properties and UV stability.
