Fire rated glass manufacturer CGI International (CGI), is investing in excess of GBP200k in Research and Development to meet modern building design challenges, and satisfy the demands from architects.

The company has opened a new state-of-the-art R+D laboratory at its Merseyside headquarters and taken the innovative step of employing a specialist polymer chemist as it aims to continually improve the performance and functionality of its safety glass products Chemist Dr Vince Crook will lead testing and development of CGI's interlayer which is used in its Pyroguard fire glass range to provide integrity, fire and heat resistance.

Dr Crook has more than seven years experience in developing fire retardant coatings and associated products.

Phill Millward, General Manager at CGI, commented: "Architects and developers are faced with the tough challenge of designing contemporary buildings that are practical, aesthetically pleasing and comply with stringent health and safety, building and fire regulations.

Our investment in R+D is focused on continuous improvement to enable CGI to develop versatile safety glasses which withstand high temperatures and extreme testing.
