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 Pyroguard 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 >£1m investment 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.

Pyroguard provided the product with good lead times and was able to support us throughout the entire installation. The Angers ICEPARC project has proved that making buildings safe does not have to come at the cost of aesthetically pleasing design, while the performance of Pyroguard Protect gives the best protection for people and property.

Besides achieving these essential technical and safety requirements, the finished product effortlessly ties the building together.

This was the first project that Seveme had undertaken with Pyroguard and it was a pleasure to work with them from beginning to end. The team advised us on the composition of the products and were able to manufacture them according to the bespoke requirements needed. They also supported us to obtain the necessary certificates and approvals.
