Pyroguard Advance is a brand-new, high-performance product, featuring an innovative gel interlayer technology expertly developed following the completion of a dedicated research, development and test programme.

Providing EW classification with a fire resistance of 30 or 60 minutes, Pyroguard Advance can also deliver exceptional fire protection at larger certified pane sizes, with a high tolerance to variations in glazing media – all helping customers to meet the demands of increasingly challenging fire safety applications.
