Padiham Glass




Padiham Glass is one of the largest independent UK specialists in Insulating Glass Units. Our services now extend to fire glass solutions, including our fire rated insulating glass unit brand, Pyrotherm.

The fire safety environment is an adverse one and it can be intimidating. It is essential that specification and installation of fire resisting systems are done correctly. Fire resistant glass, as a single pane or as an IGU is designed for use as part of a complete fire resistant structure/system. It is vital that the entire supply chain - from designers and specifiers through to suppliers and installers - adheres to current fire safety legislation and does so with great attention to detail. This allows the end user to ultimately ensure that the system as a whole satisfies the regulations and can obtain approval from competent authorities. 

Here at Padiham Glass, we have invested heavily and entered into the fire resistant glass market, but with a pro-active approach. CE marking became mandatory in July 2013 and the provision of CE marked fire resistant insulating glass units requires certification to attestation level 1. We are proud to hold and maintain a commitment to our Construction Products Regulation certificate for the manufacture of our Pyrotherm Insulating Glass units. 


Although we are currently licensed to stock, process and IGU manufacture the Pyroguard, Pyrobel, Pyrobelite & Pyroshield 2 ranges of fire resistant glass, the Pyrotherm brand is set to grow by representing a variety of incorporated fire resistant glass types. Our existing position within the market allows us to combine fire rated glass into a unit with backing panes to enhance thermal, solar and acoustic properties.

So why buy from us? Our pro-active approach extends to offer help and assistance to our customers in terms of specification, certification, product data, test evidence and without exception, excellent customer service. We have invested to make sure we have both the equipment and the resources needed to manufacture in house which enables us to offer excellent lead time and very competitive pricing. 

You can be confident that whether you are buying a Pyrotherm Insulating Glass unit option or a single pane of fire resistant glass you will be buying a product that is covered by correct licensing, CE marking and can ultimately be traced to its source.

Fire resistant glazing should always be considered as a system, not just a glass product. Each glazing system requires independent test evidence of its fire performance. This test evidence must be supplied by a certified authority according to building regulations. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that such appropriate and applicable test evidence is available for the system to be installed. Padiham Glass does not accept responsibility for any incidents which occur due to incorrect products being specified for the ratings required. More information and advice on specification can be obtained by contacting our Fire Glass Solutions division.
