Pyroguard, the global provider of
fire safety glass solutions and part of the Technical Fire Safety Group,
is pleased to introduce its latest RIBA approved CPD for the fire
safety sector: ‘Fire safety glazing – a system not a product!’
at architects and specifiers, Pyroguard’s new CPD has been developed to
help raise awareness of the role of and types of fire safety glass
available, while educating the industry on the various factors to
consider when specifying a suitable fire safety glass system.
well as explaining more about the role of fire safety glass and the
part it can play in a building’s passive fire protection strategy, the
CPD provides information on the three different classifications (E, EW
and EI), with real fire test videos to demonstrate these varying
performance levels. It also provides an overview of the current testing
standards, the different framing systems and discusses how the
multi-functionality of fire safety glass can facilitate innovations in
architectural design, with reference to recent project examples.
about the CPD, Andy Lake, Sales Director UK & IRE at Pyroguard
said: “People walk past fire safety glass all the time without realising
it. That’s because it’s an ideal way to preserve the aesthetics and
architectural design of a building, while still providing a form of
high-performance passive fire protection.
“There still remains
some confusion within the industry about how fire safety glass works,
the classifications and applications and its use within a building. Our
CPD serves to both educate and raise awareness, providing architects and
specifiers with the knowledge needed to confidently specify a
fire-rated glazed system on their next project.”
safety glazing – a system not a product!’ CPD will be delivered as part
of RIBA’s 2021 Digital CPD Roadshow under the following core curriculum
subjects: ‘Health, safety and wellbeing’ and ‘Design, construction and
