Our Pilkington Range
Performance Glass Processing is an official stockist of Pilkington glass. We supply a variety of different types of glass including – Pyroshield 2, Pyroclear, Pyrodur and Pyrostop.
Pilkington Pyroclear® is an advanced toughened fire-resistant glass for use as a basic integrity-only barrier. It offers Integrity of 30 and 60 minutes, (E30 and E60) to BS EN 13501-02. It is also a high quality glass that is suitable for internal partitions and comes in a variety of thicknesses starting from 6mm.
Pilkington Pyrodur® is ideal for use in fire doors and partitioning. It is a clear, laminated glass resistant to fire and impact which offers up to 60 minutes integrity, together with some heat insulation in suitable glazing systems. Depending on the thickness, it provides impact protection up to Class 1(B)1 of BS EN 12600.
Pyrodur quickly turns opaque in the event of a fire. This creates a physical and visual barrier between the fire and the people, reducing panic and allowing people to escape quickly and effectively. It also creates a barrier against hot gases and flames.
Pyroshield 2 is a monolithic wired glass. It is available in 2 varieties. Pyroshield 2 Clear and Pyroshield 2 Texture. For vision or privacy respectively. It can be used in a variety of applications such as fire doors, screens and overhead glazing. Wired glass offers great value for money and is easy to transport, handle and glaze. Pyroshield offers up to 30 & 60 minutes integrity and meets EU and industry standards.
Pyrostop offers protection against heat, flames and hot gases. The Pilkington Pyrostop® Range is a family of clear, laminated fully insulating fire and impact-resistant glass that offers the highest levels of fire protection (integrity and insulation). It provides passive protection for the escape of people during a fire and firefighter access. It also offers some protection to buildings and limits fire damage. In the event of a fire, Pyrostop also turns opaque; like Pyrodur, creating a physical and visual barrier between people and the fire which reduces panic and allows for a safe evacuation.
