Classifications of fire safety glass

Our cuttable and toughened products cover endless specification possibilities, and can be tailored to meet the demands of even the most ambitious projects. Our EI Classified products can even deliver effective protection against fire for to up to 180 minutes!

Tried, tested, trusted – We can supply reliable and affordable fire safety glass in all three standardised European fire protection classifications: E – IntegrityEW – Radiation Control, and EI – Insulation, helping you to find the right solution for your building and installation needs.

E – Integrity

This classification effectively demonstrates the ability to prevent the passage of flames or hot gases through the glass when exposed to fire on one side, and to prevent the occurrence of flames on the unexposed side.

E – Integrity offers effective and economical protection from flames and smoke, but does not prevent the transmission of heat in the event of a fire.

EW – Integrity & Radiation

Fire safety glass in the EW category: Radiation Control maintains all the integrity performance of E Classification (resistance to flames and smoke) when exposed to fire on one side, but also provides some heat resistance, keeping the amount of radiant heat transfer to below 15 kW/m2 on the unexposed side.

Pyroguard Rapide and Pyroguard Firesafe products are UV stable and can be used for both interior and exterior applications.

Extra protection with Pyroguard fire safety glass

Whether designing a commercial, public or residential building, compliance with the minimum standards of fire safety laid out in the UK Building Regulations is a must. Choosing the right specification of fire safety glass can help to ensure you not only meet, but exceed these minimum levels of protection for both people and property.

The UK Building Regulations set out requirements for both integrity (E) and insulation (EI). Pyroguard’s range of market-leading fire safety glass goes above and beyond these minimum requirements, offering an additional layer of protection with radiation control (EW).

Our fire safety glass can prevent flames, radiant heat and fumes from penetrating a building’s protected spaces for up to 180 minutes, aiding safe escape and helping to minimise damage to property.
