Helping combine performance and aesthetics, with Pyroguard’s new Smokeguard brochure

Balancing building safety with aesthetic appeal continues to be in demand with smoke control solutions rising in popularity. To support this, Pyroguard is delighted to announce the release of its new Smokeguard brochure, providing customers with valuable information on its toughened glass solution.

When it comes to smoke control, an important part of a building’s passive fire protection strategy, the industry is increasingly moving away from mechanical or obstructive smoke control curtains to contemporary glazed solutions. Smokeguard is Pyroguard’s smoke control solution, offering 30-60 minutes fire protection. Manufactured from a sheet of toughened glass, it’s designed to be suspended from the ceiling to offer a contemporary and visually appealing solution.

The new brochure is designed to be an informative resource for architects and specifiers and is available to download from Pyroguard’s website. Containing all the latest product information, technical drawings and details on fixings, the brochure also features recent project case studies from around the world.

Speaking about the brochure, Andy Lake, Pyroguard’s UK & IRE Sales Director said: “While the conversation around passive fire protection often focuses on fire safety glass, smoke control is just as important, having a real impact on the ability of occupants to safely evacuate a building. With this in mind, Smokeguard is the ideal solution, helping architects to meet the required safety regulations without compromising on design.

“Our new brochure provides architects and specifiers with easy access to the information they need and is just one example of the comprehensive technical and product support we offer to our customers.”

Available in 8 mm thicknesses and with glass pane sizes up to 2500 x 1200 mm, Smokeguard can seamlessly blend into the background of a building. Available as a complete system – supplied with the glass, slimline steel brackets and fixings – once installed it can form a channel that stretches the length of a corridor or building.

As the world’s leading independent provider of fire safety glass solutions for timber, steel and aluminium applications, Pyroguard has been helping architects to achieve safe and beautiful living and working spaces for over 35 years. With a dedicated technical team and comprehensive bank of test evidence, a range of support and resources are also readily available on its website.
