Pyroguard issues EPD encompassing entire range, verified by BRE

Pyroguard, has issued an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), spanning its entire range of Pyroguard T solutions. The EPD has been independently verified to be in accordance with the requirements of EN15804, and is published on the GreenBookLive online database.

EN 15804

Reflecting Pyroguard’s commitment to sustainability, the accreditation enables architects and specifiers to easily understand the environmental impact of the Pyroguard T range, subsequently supporting projects to achieve certifications such as LEED and BREEAM.

Designed for ambitious architectural projects, Pyroguard T is available in large sizes and consists of toughened monolithic and laminated glasses, the range enables the transmission of natural light, provides acoustic control and thermal and solar performance, in addition to providing high levels of fire safety.

Speaking of the achievement, Richard Ainsworth, Group Technical Director at Pyroguard, said: “In modern construction, there are some significant trends which are having an enormous impact on the performance expectations of buildings. Sustainability is leading the way here, meaning many buildings are now required to meet LEED or BREEAM criteria, encouraging architects to specify materials that contribute towards sustainability efforts, in addition to other essential criteria such as fire safety performance.

“For our entire range of Pyroguard T solutions to be verified to be in accordance with the latest standards for construction lifecycle analysis is of huge benefit to our customers and their clients. As well as highlighting our commitment to sustainability and transparency within our product life cycle, the BRE EPD further underpins Pyroguard as an innovative global leader in fire-rated safety glass.”

Verified by independent third-party assessors to EN ISO 14025:2010, EPDs are based on an analysis of a product’s life cycle, including its environmental performance, from the extraction of raw materials through to production and processing.
