Our new fire resistant glass site

With a vast number of fire resistant glass products to choose from, it is all too easy for the wrong type of glass to be installed. To simplify the specification process, we have introduced a product selection tool on our newly launched Fire Resistant Glass website –

The product selector simply asks a set of key questions and takes the user through to a selection of fire glass products to consider. Completing fields including duration, classification (integrity/insulation), and desired frame type, all available products are immediately identified, together with the associated test certificate number.

As one of the forerunners in the development of certified and multi-functional technical glass, we are one of the few companies to offer fire resistance combined with certified security glass.

The specification of fire rated glass can be complex to say the least, with architects having to interpret detailed technical data and understand the limitations of testing parameters. And, it gets more complicated when other issues need to be considered including, security, privacy and sound attenuation.

With our online guide and product selector, we aim to make it easier for architects and specifiers to select fire resistant glass products with additional benefits of enhanced security or improved sound control.

In particular, visitors to the site can learn more about ESG Pyrotech™, the most versatile accredited range of fire resistant glass products on the market.
Part of the Secured By Design range, ESG Pyrotech Secure™ can be incorporated with any of ESG’s security glass products. This includes glass tested to the Loss Prevention Certificate Board’s (LPCB’s) new security glass standard LPS 1270, which was developed to increase the current level of security offered by glass tested to European Standard BS EN 356:2000.

For peace of mind, the Quality Standards section of the website provides thorough details on the rigorous testing each product has undergone – the majority of which are undertaken by leading third-party European certifiers.

ESG Tough Guys Complete ‘Survival of the Fittest’ for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

ESG Tough Guys

Ten of ESG UK’s toughest and fittest employees, headed by Production Director, Craig McGiffen, took part in the inaugural London Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest event on November 12th 2011.

This monster of an event was held at Battersea Power Station. The ten strong team completed a very muddy 10km of running with challenging obstacles en route including 10ft high walls, muddy skips, monster trucks and cars.

So why did team ESG do this? Yes, they are all crazy but they all wanted to raise some money for a very worthy cause – Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

Production Director, Craig McGiffen says “ We are all very proud to have completed the gruelling Survival of the Fittest event but we are even more proud of supporting such a worthwhile charity that provides inspirational and world-class care to hundreds of children every day.”
