GGI adds hard-body impact rating for Pyrobel 120

  Safety glass

GGI, a premier glass fabricator and distributor, successfully tests Pyrobel 120, AGC’s 2-hour rated multi-laminated glass for ASTM C1629 Hard-Body Impact Resistance.

Pyrobel protects against the threat of deadly radiant heat from 45 minutes up to 2 hours
General Glass International (GGI) today announced the completion of Hard-Body Impact Resistance testing of Pyrobel 120, AGC’s 2-hour rated multi-laminated glass that protects against deadly radiant heat.
Pyrobel protects against the threat of deadly radiant heat from 45 minutes up to 2 hours. Its interlayer technology eliminates unsightly black spacers and secondary seals found in gel-filled units.
This allows for virtually clear-edge butt-glazing similar to non-rated glazing.
Exceptional sound reduction and light transmission performance makes Pyrobel the perfect choice for transparent wall assemblies separating busy corridors from exit pathways and gathering spaces. 
Pyrobel is listed in both the USA and Canada by Intertek and UL in accordance with UL 263 and ASTM E 119 with hose stream.
“As part of GGI’s commitment to providing superior glass products from around the world, we’re happy to confirm Pyrobel’s additional level of protection,” says Brad Thurman, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. 
“ASTM C1629 Hard-Body Impact Resistance testing, as required by the building code of New York City and other localities, ensures the safety of those who pass by our 2-hour, floor to ceiling fire-rated glass enclosures.”
