Fire Glass

A protective layer giving you valuable time

The importance of fire resistant glass

The fire environment is hostile and its effects can be catastrophic for both life and property. The occurrence of fire and its development is also essentially unpredictable and uncertain.

It is therefore critically important that the specification, selection, and installation of fire resistant glazing are all carried out with close attention to detail. Fire resistant glazing may be used as a barrier for the fire separation or compartmentation as part of an integrated fire safety strategy for the building.


Both integrity-only and integrity with insulation ratings are available.

Products span the range of standard test times of 15, 30, 60, 90, 120 and even 180 minutes according to either BS 476-22, BS EN 1364-1 or BS EN 1634-1, as well as special types to resist the higher intensity petrochemical fire test curve

Fire resistant glass must only be used as part of a fire resistant glazed system – which includes the glass, the glazing seal, beads, fixings and frame. All essential components of such a system must be compatible under fire conditions, and the performance must be referenced to appropriate and relevant test evidence.

Pilkington’s range of fire-resistant glass is made up of four product lines, each representing different performance profiles. This ensures precise and economical correspondence to the safety requirements in terms of the specific building structure, the building code regulations and the intended use of the building.

  • Pilkington Pyrostop® – (EI glazing)
    Fire-resistant glass for situations and applications that need the highest level of reliable protection from fire, smoke and dangerous radiant heat

  • Pilkington Pyrodur® – (EW glazing)
    Fire-resistant glass for applications that require protection from fire and smoke in combination with reduced transfer of radiant heat

  • Pilkington Pyroclear® – (E glazing)
    Fire-resistant glass for applications that require basic protection from fire and smoke (integrity only performance)

  • Pilkington Pyroshield™ 2
    Fire-resistant wired glass which in the event of fire, provides an effective barrier to flame, smoke and hot gases.
