Pyroguard was formed in the late 80’s, beginning life initially as Northern Wired Glass and later CGI International. The company’s initial production focus was on traditional wired glass, but sound technical expertise and an extensive programme of research and development saw the creation of a clear fire safety glass, which was the basis of the extensive fire glass portfolio we offer today. In 2012, the Group acquired Interver, a French manufacturer of fire safety glass, which allowed us to broaden our range to include toughened glasses for project applications.
Late 2015 saw the appointment of our CEO Neil Tilsley and the completion of a significant capacity expansion programme into our manufacturing facilities. Since then, the company has grown across our core markets of the UK, France and The Netherlands and continues to expand on a global scale entering new territories including; Belgium, Germany, Italy, Iberia, Scandinavia, Middle East, India and North America.
A management buyout was completed in 2018 and in 2019 we created the Technical Fire Safety Group with our sister company Fire Glass UK. In early 2021 we embarked on the relocation of one of our UK production facilities to a brand-new, three-acre site in Haydock. October 2022 saw the Technical Fire Safety Group merge with the svt Group of Companies, one of the leading suppliers of passive fire protection in Europe.

What our customers say
Working with both Jansen and Pyroguard, these glazing systems and screens were designed not only for their minimalistic aesthetic and ability to allow maximum light into the interior space, but more importantly to comply with the fire strategy of the building. Pyroguard Protect fire safety glass enabled the creation of fire safe compartments on each floor and lobby, ensuring the protection of future building occupants.

When it came to working on a project of this scale we knew Pyroguard would be the perfect fit, their extensive expertise in the field of fire safety glass and the multi-functionality of their products gave us the reassurance we needed to achieve the unique requirements set out in this project. With the Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, it was essential that we had a glazing system that was not only fire resistant but also burglary resistant too, Pyroguard Protect ticked both of these boxes. Pyroguard’s professional and collaborative approach throughout the project proved instrumental in helping us to get the result we wanted and we look forward to working with them again in the near future.
