FIRE RATED GLAZING SYSTEMS
INCORPORATING PILKINGTON PYROSTOP™ AND PILKINGTON PYRODUR™




INTRODUCTION
Pyropanel Developments are specialists in fire rated glazing solutions, and our fire rated
glazing systems are designed for easy installation into new projects, refurbished buildings
and existing walls.

In addition to regular non insulated Georgian and Pyroceram™ non insulated systems,
Pyropanel also offer a number of certified solutions incorporating Pilkington Pyrostop™ and
Pyrodur™ fire rated glass. Pilkington Pyrostop™ and Pyrodur™ are arguably the best fire rated
glass products available in Australia, offering superior safety, longevity and visual transparency
for both insulated and non insulated applications. All Pilkington Pyrostop™ and Pyrodur™
products have an impact rating to AS2208.
As part of the certified solution, Pyropanel uses a European designed insulated steel element
that can be used to support glass panels in both doors and fixed windows. Available for
internal and external applications, there are a variety of profiles designed to suit most glazing
applications and classifications under the Building Code of Australia, and all products are
certified to the relevant Australian Standard. Pyropanel also offer a range of timber fire doors
that can incorporate either half or full light glazed elements incorporating Pilkington Pyrostop™.
For compliance to Australian Standards, all fire rated solutions must be independently certified
by an approved testing laboratory and form part of a certified system. All Pyropanel Fire Rated
glass door and window systems are fully tested certified to AS1530.4, and are used extensively
in commercial and residential applications. All Pyropanel certified fire rated glazed solutions are
supplied as a complete package including frame and glass, and are either factory fitted or fitted
on side depending on the project specifics.


DEFINITIONS
Fire Resistance Levels, or FRL’s for short are a series of numbers that describe the ability of a
certified product to resist the spread of fire. For example, a typical fire rated wall may have a fire
resistance level of 120/120/120. But what do these three numbers actually mean?

STRUCTURAL ADEQUACY
The first number simply refers to how long the product can withstand the spread of fire and
still support what it is designed to support. Doors and windows are not structural items, and
therefore are not tested for this aspect of fire resistance, and will generally be represented with
a “-“ in the first position.

INTEGRITY
The second number refers to the ability to keep the spread of flames back. There are particular
requirements under the Australian Standards as to the pass and fail criteria.

INSULATION
The final number refers to the length of time that the product can prevent the spread of fire
due to heat transfer. Specific requirements include the ability to prevent a localised temperature
increase of more than 180 degrees C, or an average temperature increase of 140 degrees C.

                                 APPLICATIONS
                                 Pyropanel Fire Rated Glass doors and windows are ideal for applications where natural light
                                 needs to be retained and where visual sighting is important, but where the fire rating of the
                                 building element must also be retained. Typical installations such as doors and windows in stair
                                 wells increase their attractiveness and hence usability while providing both a socially safe and
                                 fire safe environment for occupants. Other uses are common, such as in heritage buildings
                                 where the use of unsightly sprinklers is not desirable, hospitals, schools and nursing homes
                                 where visual sighting is important, and of course all applications under the building code of
                                 Australia that require the use of fire rated glazing solutions. Fire rated glass doors and windows
                                 open up a world of design opportunities for creating visually appealing buildings that utilise the
                                 benefits of natural light and visibility, without compromising fire safety.
