Snoqualmie, Wash., July 16, 2018 – To expand security glazing options in fire conditions, Technical Glass Products (TGP), a brand of Allegion, and The LTI Group are now working together to offer Pilkington Pyrostop® laminated to School Guard Glass®. The fire-rated, forced entry and bullet-resistant transparent wall panel is designed to help delay intruders while maintaining a high level of fire and life safety in schools and education facilities. It is fire-rated for up to 120 minutes, offers a Level III bullet-resistance rating and withstands 12+ minute forced entry attacks in compliant doors and frames.
In addition to forced entry and bullet-resistance, Pilkington Pyrostop laminated to School Guard Glass meets the impact requirements of CPSC 16CFR1201 Category I and/or Category II. To meet specific project needs, it is available incorporating a variety of glass products, including popular options such as tinted, one-way mirror, Low-E and reflective glass.

Pilkington Pyrostop is a fire-rated and impact safety-rated glazing material that blocks radiant heat, helping protect people and valuables on the non-fire side of the glass where heat transfer might be a concern.
