At AIS, we believe that safety comes first. With an increase in fire outbreaks in India, it is now vital to be prepared when it comes to protecting your space and loved ones from fire. To achieve this, we have launched a new range of Fire Resistant Glass under the label ‘AIS Pyrobel’.

AIS Pyrobel is a laminated glass with an intumescent layer. A high-end Fire Resistant Glass range, AIS Pyrobel is specially engineered to withstand extreme levels of heat, restrict heat transfer and prevent passage of smoke and flames.

In view of several recent fire incidents in India, we believe that this range of Fire Resistant Glass products can play a pivotal role in containing damage to life and property caused by fire.

Why AIS Pyrobel?

AIS Pyrobel is the perfect solution against fire that helps reduce spread of fire and heat in times of an outbreak. It also helps in providing enough time to implement an evacuation plan.

In the event of a fire, the interlayers will expand and transform themselves into a rigid, opaque and heat absorbing fire shield.

AIS Pyrobel is a multi-laminated glass assembled with clear intumescent interlayers.

It can actually substitute a brick wall in terms of fire-rating property, yet give transparency. While some of the fire safety glasses function as a physical barrier preventing spread of fire and smoke, certain advanced solutions can actually drastically reduce the radiant heat from a fire.

The European classification standards (EN 13501) for glass use the following system:

  • E – Integrity
  • W – Integrity & Low Radiation
  • I – Integrity & Insulation
  • E Class – Integrity

They provide for only integrity. These are special tempered glasses and they prevent the spread of flames to the non-fire side. There will be no protection from radiation in this type of glasses. They are normally used for internal applications.

  • EW Class – Integrity & Low Radiation

These are tempered and laminated glasses. They prevent the flames and also control the radiation on the non-fire side to a maximum of 15KW per sqm. They offer integrity and provide for low heat radiation. They are used for internal and external applications.

  • EI Class – Integrity & Insulation

These type of glasses offer integrity and insulation. The maximum temperature on the non-fire side does not exceed an average of 140 degree Celsius.
