Pilkington Pyrostop™, a fire-rated,  impact safety-rated, transparent glass wall panel that also blocks  heat transfer, is now available with integrated Venetian blinds to  enhance privacy and reduce glare.

Distributed by Technical Glass Products (TGP), Pilkington  Pyrostop products block the spread of flames and smoke, as  well as reduce the transfer of radiant and conductive heat from a  fire. Pilkington Pyrostop also meets impact requirements of  CPSC 16CFR1201 Category I and Category II. The transparent  wall panels are fire-rated for up to two hours and make an  excellent alternative to a solid wall, allowing unrestricted amounts of glass.

They are  ideal for applications where the aesthetics of glass are desired and codes require a firerated  product for life and property safety.  In instances where users want to control the amount of light entering a space or visibility  into the space, Pilkington Pyrostop products with 45- and 60-minute fire ratings can be  combined with manually operable Venetian blinds included in an insulated glass unit.

Usable in interior spaces, Pilkington Pyrostop with integrated blinds is well suited for  glazed office fronts within buildings, conference room windows, private offices, lobbies  and other similar uses. The blinds are encased between multiple layers of glass, so never  need to be cleaned. In addition, the blinds are available in a wide range of colors and are  fabricated in the U.S., allowing for short delivery lead times.
