Exeter Glass Centre has reportedly teamed up with Pilkington to become the local stockist in the south west of England of Pilkington“s range of fire-resistant glass products. Exeter Glass Centre is part of independent, local and family-owned business Cornwall Glass & Glazing Ltd., which employs over 150 staff at 13 glass handling, supply and processing sites. Steven Michell, Public Relations manager for Exeter Glass Centre, said: We are very proud to be the only company stocking and supplying Pilkington“s well respected range of fire-resistant glass products. This is an exciting new development, which will deliver efficient and reliable fire-resistant glazing solutions to customers of the south-west. We have a major commitment to our region and we want to make available the very best of world-beating glass products that are now available. The Pilkington range of fire-resistant glass undoubtedly fulfils that criterion, and comes as well with the highest standards of technical support and advice on applications and fire safety requirements. This is a perfect blend of our own particular style of local service, second to none for our communities in the south-west, and Pilkington“s distinctive brand of technical know-how and product quality. The ongoing development of the Cornwall Glass Group is a regional success story and we want to make sure that we continue that growth. To do that, we intend to add to our range and capabilities. This development certainly does that. The key fire safety legislation in the UK, The Fire Safety Order (FSO), focuses on two key aspects – personal responsibility for providing suitable and sufficient measures for the protected escape of occupants in case of fire, and the requirement for a risk assessment to be carried out for all buildings. Prime responsibity is given to the owner or he who operates the building and extends down the design, specification, supply and installation chain.
