Pilkington Pyrostop® has been specified in a comprehensive refurbishment of a Grade II listed Magistrates’ Court in Bedford to integrate the County Court into the building and improve accessibility to the public areas.

The historic building, constructed in the 1880s by Alfred Waterhouse, the architect of the iconic Natural History Museum in London, now has the fire-resistant glazing in its doors, screens and windows, offering integrity, insulation and fire protection, whilst enhancing the character of the building. Due to its public use it is essential the court’s occupants are protected from hot gases, flames and heat should fire occur.The Pilkington Pyrostop range of products turns opaque in the event of fire, maintaining integrity and providing a barrier to hot gasses and flames, as well as effective insulation from heat for test times of up to 180 minutes.
In addition to the doors and windows, Pilkington Pyrostop has been installed in consulting rooms and the District Judge’s Office.
