CGI INTERNATIONAL Launches Pyroguard Fire Glass Solutions

Fire glass solutions specialist, CGI International has rebranded its market leading fire glazing range as Pyroguard to bring the full suite of radiation control (EW) and insulated (EI) glazing products into a streamlined format.

Driven by the increased number of CGI products being specified by architects and building engineers, the rebrand will standardise the product naming conventions to make it easier to identify the correct product for a specific application.

Replacing the former brand for EI rated glass and C1130/C1060 EW products, all CGI fire glass solutions will now be exclusively marketed as Pyroguard according to the fire safety performance that can be achieved. For example, Pyroguard EW 30 denotes that this type of glass can deliver radiation control in fire conditions up to 30 minutes, subject to the maximum sheet size that has been tested.

David Jolliffe, Managing Director, CGI International, explains: The specification of fire rated glazing can be complex at the best of times, with architects having to interpret detailed technical data and understand the boundaries of testing parameters. By simplifying our branding, we aim to make it easier for specifiers to identify at a glance what applications a particular product is certified for use in.

Specialising exclusively in fire glass solutions, CGI is committed to providing high levels of technical support. By carrying out an extensive testing programme, CGI delivers increasingly large sheet sizes and access to a wide a variety of fully certified systems, including timber, steel and aluminium frames as well as partitions. In doing so, test evidence is readily available that enables specifiers to push the boundaries with what can be achieved in fire glazing design.

With the Pyroguard brand now fully rolled out through CGIs UK-wide processor network, CGI has launched a new website which incorporates an intuitive product selector. Application-driven, simply complete fields such as frame type, classification and duration and the selector tool will reveal all systems that are available, including associated test certificate number.

For requirements outside of the tested systems that are detailed on the product selector, specifiers, manufacturers and processors should contact a member of the CGI technical team by email below:
