PYROGUARD - Royal Shakespeare Company Opens Its Fire Doors With Pyroguard

Pyroguard fire safety glazing has been installed at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s (RSC) new theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. Specified by fit-out specialists, Swift Horsman, the much celebrated Royal Shakespeare Theatre has benefitted from high performance integrity and insulation Pyroguard EI glazing in fire doors and fire screens throughout the development.

Installed by Pyroguard glazing partner, Moon Limited, Pyroguard EI was specified at 23mm and 15mm thicknesses to deliver 60/60 and 60/30 fire ratings respectively. Used as part of an internal fire door system from Harrington Fabrications, Pyroguard was required to deliver integrity and insulation performance for the slim vision panels, which were situated at each level entrance into the viewing tower staircase.

Bill Harris, Swift Horsman, comments: “The challenge for this project was satisfying the building regulation requirements without compromising on the build schedule. Pyroguard met the necessary performance specification and was delivered to site as bespoke cut sizes in a short space of time.”

Providing a barrier to fire and heat to allow safe passage and exit, Pyroguard EI is classified to EI 60 to EN 13501-2 and impact safety to EN12600 Class 1B1. Available in a range of thicknesses to accommodate internal and external fire safety applications, Pyroguard has been approved for use with a number of framing methods. Supplied in stock sheets or as bespoke sizes to order, Pyroguard can be delivered to site at short notice.

David Jolliffe, Managing Director, Pyroguard, explains: “We work closely with our partners in the supply chain to ensure the correct specification and installation of our fire safety glazing products. The RSC is a perfect example of how our hands-on technical support ensured the seamless delivery of this specialist element of the joinery package.”

Pyroguard EI is part of a wider portfolio of fire safety glazing products manuafctured and supplied by CGI International.

The complete Pyroguard range provides access to integrity only (E) as well as integrity plus radiation control (EW) products.
