Landscape timber test success for Pyroguard Protect EW30

We’re pleased to announce the recent test success of our largest EW30 timber landscape pane to date. This new test is part of our continued developments to push boundaries and increase test sizes for timber in Pyroguard Protect.

The successful test featured Pyroguard T-EW/13-1 (pane size: 1504 x 2930 mm) and was designed with the following features:

  • 17 mm high beads
  • Pinned beads
  • Softwood
  • Small section mullions and transom
  • Paintable capping (sealants used for capping glazing to prevent water ingress)
  • Flexodice BS glazing gasket (intumescent fire gasket for fire resistant glazing systems)

This is the first time Pyroguard Protect EW30 has been successfully tested in a landscape format for timber and we’re proud to confirm it comfortably met the target, achieving EW45. This is a fantastic result for the Technical team and means we have the flexibility to offer you an ever growing range.
