CGI International enhances Pyroguard fire glass range with EW30 maxi

17 May 12 CGI International, has launched Pyroguard EW30 Maxi " a new 11mm laminated fire glass product that brings to market the largest tested size of its kind for 30 minute applications.

Available in stock sheets with immediate effect, Pyroguard EW30 Maxi is certified for use with timber, steel and aluminium profiles and offers all the benefits of the existing Pyroguard EW range, including radiation control and no edge taping.

For timber applications, Pyroguard EW30 Maxi has been tested up to a maximum size of 1580mm x 2780mm in a softwood frame with pinned hardwood beads, making it the largest sheet currently available for a laminated fire safety glass. The product has also been tested in a Schuco aluminium frame system as an IGU, with a maximum tested size of 1200mm x 2428mm. As with all Pyroguard products, Pyroguard EW30 Maxi can be used with mainstream steel profiles.  

The development of Pyroguard EW30 Maxi enables CGI International to offer processors access to the full range of 30 minute products from a single source. Paul Wakeling, Project & Specification Managerfor CGI International, comments: “Importantly for the launch of Pyroguard EW30 Maxi, we haven’t simply produced a ‘me too’ product. Instead we have added value by significantly extending the test evidence both in terms of maximum size and approved systems.”
