In addition, CGI will be concentrating on new test parameters successfully achieved over recent months for its growing range of high performance fire glasses.
Fireswiss Foam is the latest insulated glass to join CGI's comprehensive portfolio of fire glasses, which includes the established Pyroguard, Fireswiss and Paraflam ranges. The company will have a 6m x 4m area within the Glass & Glazing Federation stand and will feature a newly created display of specialist glasses and information.
Some of CGI's recent fire tests included:
- 7mm Pyroguard clear meeting much larger size limits in wooden door vision panels (for British Building Regulation Approved Document M)
- Sizes up to 872mm x 2590mm to EN Standard in metal partitions
- Single-layer fire rated glass
Tom Ritchie, CGI International's Chief Executive, says, "Since we first exhibited at Glasstec in 2000, CGI International has become established as a leading manufacturer and supplier of specialist fire resistant glasses, manufactured by us/or sold exclusively in many important world markets.
"The extent of our export business was recognised earlier this year by a Queen's Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2004. Glasstec now opens up new opportunities to add even more export markets to the 20-plus countries where we already trade. As an established meeting place for International visitors, the show presents the idea venue to make contact with new and existing trading partners and customers."
