Feeling the heat: an in-depth look at how glass performs in the test furnace

Architects across the commercial and domestic construction industries are specifying an increased amount of glass in their designs.  Fire-resistant glazing plays a vital role in ensuring the safety of buildings and their occupants, and as such we are seeing the demand for this sort of glazing grow.

In this video, Steve Bond, customer and technical support manager, Fire Protection Glass, at Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, talks us through the testing process for fire-resistant glass and explains what gives Pilkington Pyrostop® the ability to withstand temperatures reaching 800 degrees Celsius for up to 30 minutes. 




Pilkington Pyrostop®

is just one product with fire-resistant properties, and others within the Pilkington range have the ability to withstand temperatures as high as 1,100 degrees Celsius for up to three hours.
