Pyroguard and Schüco collaboration yields new fire safety solutions

Pyroguard, an independent provider of fire safety glass, has recently completed a comprehensive testing programme in partnership with Schüco, a well-regarded supplier of aluminium window, door, and façade systems.

This collaboration has led to Pyroguard enhancing its product range with new capabilities for Schüco’s ADS 80 framing system and FW 50 curtain wall system.

These systems now feature Pyroguard Protect toughened fire safety glass in EI30 and EI60 classifications, expanding the options for aluminium framing, including internal glass partitions and curtain walling systems.

Andy Lake, Sales Director UK & IRE at Pyroguard, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration: “This is a really great success for both businesses and has been many years in the making, with considerable company investment and real dedication from Pyroguard and Schüco’s technical and R&D teams.

“Being able to partner with Schüco is a huge opportunity for us. They are a major name in aluminium framing – its FW 50 façade system dominates the European market.

“So, it’s great to have been able to work with them on these new system capabilities.
