Installed as vision panels in over 50 doors throughout the new wing, Waller Glazing Services value engineered the original fire glass specification with Pyroguard FireDoor 60 – to achieve time, cost and labour savings as compared with the 11mm product usually specified for 60 minute applications.
Specified as vision panels for fire doors, the slim 7mm profile of Pyroguard FireDoor 60 enabled the product to be cut on-site and ultimately drive efficiencies with the site programme.
Steve Waller, Managing Director, Waller Glazing Services, explains: “Speed of turn around and cost were two prevailing factors on this project. As a lighter and more cost effective product than 11mm glazing, Pyroguard FireDoor 60 was much quicker to install and at only 7mm thick, could be cut by hand on-site.”
