The ESG Secure range comprises multilayer panels incorporating glass, polycarbonate and other specialist interlayers. Some products in the range combine high mechanical stability with tempered safety characteristics.
The use of compatible panel sizes, frames and glazing methods is essential to ensure that the products perform to the tested and approved parameters of the various test certificates. Panels within the ESG Secure range must be ordered to the exact size as they cannot be altered after manufacture. All products are suitable for both internal and external applications.
Orientation: All panels are marked with the relevant quality stamp which must be glazed facing the attack side. In the case of ESG Pyrotech™ Secure the outer Pyrotech™ leaf must be glazed away from the fire side. Customers must specify the attack and fire sides when ordering ESG Pyrotech™ Secure products.
To enable ESG Pyrotech™ Secure to be easily used by a wide range of door and frame manufacturers, the products have been approved within the CERTIFIRE scheme.
(CERTIFIRE is a UKAS accredited approval and certification scheme - run by Exova Fire Research - which assesses the test evidence available for products and provides a field of application for their use.)
All panels must be stored in a dry environment and protected from the elements at an ambient temperature. Care should be taken to avoid damage to the edges of the panels when handling ESG Secure products. The glass edges should be supported on timber blocks or other non abrasive materials and stacked at an angle of 5-7°.
ESG Secure panels do not require any special maintenance procedures. Once installed the glass should be cleaned regularly with warm water and a mild liquid detergent, using a soft clean cloth, then rinsed with clean water and dried with a soft dry clean cloth. The use of abrasive cleaners and/or cleaning implements may damage or scratch the panels’ exterior surface and should therefore be avoided.
When sealants are used for glazing glass/polycarbonate composite panels, extreme caution must be taken in the type of sealant used. Sealents which are compatible with polycarbonate or glass may not be suitable for glazing glass/ polycarbonate composites.
