AGC confirms its position as the safe and 100% reliable choice for fire resistant glass – now and in the long term – by extending its worldwide warranty for Pyrobel from five to ten years.
Over the past 40 years, AGC has developed significant expertise in fire-resistant glass. The company's Pyrobel brand, well known for its superb quality and safety, offers a full range of reliable and durable fire-resistant solutions. Pyrobel and Pyrobelite laminated fire-resistant glazing utilise transparent intumescent interlayers to resist fire anywhere from 15 to 180 minutes. The products are available in different classes delivering different levels of protection1 : Integrity (E), Integrity and Limited Heat Radiation (EW), Integrity and Insulation (EI).
AGC's extended warranty applies to Pyrobel and Pyrobelite in any application with a four-sided frame, in both single glazing and insulated glazing units. The warranty covers various types of optical defects, including haze and bubbles. The warranty is valid only if AGC's instructions on processing, packing, storage, transportation, installation, use and maintenance have been strictly followed .
This ten-year warranty period applies to all Pyrobel and Pyrobelite glass invoiced on or after 1 September 2020. The guarantee will be activated if AGC accepts the claim, and the glazing will subsequently be replaced and delivered free of charge.
