Expanding horizons, with Pyroguard and Schüco aluminium test programme

Following the completion of an extensive test programme with Schüco, Pyroguard is delighted to announce the expansion of its range of solutions for aluminium doors, partitions and façades, offering its customers even more choice.

As the world’s leading independent provider of fire safety glass, Pyroguard remains committed to expanding its bank of test evidence, with the addition of new framing partnerships and system capabilities. The latest investment has been a comprehensive test programme with Schüco, one of the industry’s prominent suppliers of high-quality aluminium window, door and façade systems.

Following the test programme, Pyroguard can now offer a range of new capabilities across Schüco’s ADS 80 framing system and FW 50 curtain wall system, featuring Pyroguard Protect toughened fire safety glass in EI30 and EI60 classifications. Tested and approved by Warrington Fire (UK), IFT (Germany) and Efectis (France), this new scope of evidence opens the door to more aluminium framing options, including internal glass partitions and curtain walling systems, both increasingly popular amongst architects.

Speaking about the achievement, Andy Lake, Sales Director UK & IRE at Pyroguard said: “This is a really great success for both businesses and has been many years in the making, with considerable company investment and real dedication from Pyroguard and Schüco’s technical and R&D teams.

“Being able to partner with Schüco is a huge opportunity for us. They are a major name in aluminium framing – its FW 50 façade system dominates the European market. So, it’s great to have been able to work with them on these new system capabilities. As a result of this investment, we can provide our customers with a wider range of aluminium framing solutions that meet EI30 and EI60 ratings, contributing to more options that combine aesthetics with safety.”
