The Choice is Clear: AGC PYROBEL® Vision Line System by McGrory Glass

Architects, building project managers and designers work with intricate architectural designs that must deliver modern aesthetics—like large, clear glass walls and partitions— while also meeting strict code requirements. AGC PYROBEL® Vision Line System by McGrory Glass offers the ideal architectural solution: a fire-resistant, visually unbroken wall of glass that allows for clear, unobstructed views.

Cutting-edge innovations in fire-rated glass technology by AGC created the PYROBEL® product line: a multi-ply laminate with low-iron float glass components that allows for much larger, clearer glass elements, without compromising fire safety. Frameless partitioning sets this innovative barrier-to-heat product line apart, and both AGC PYROBEL® and the Vision Line System have been rigorously tested to meet ASTM E119 and UL 263 performance criteria.

Mind the Gap: AGC PYROBEL® Vision Line is a Unique ‘Frameless’ Fire-Resistive Installation with a Narrow ~4mm Joint

The PYROBEL® Vision Line system uses fire-rated glazing panels separated by a narrow ~4mm fire-resistant silicone joint, offering clear sight lines and continuous views. The installation method of using silicone butt glazing where the glazing is retained at the head and sill, allows for no structural support (or mullions) on the vertical edges – which means no thick black lines interfering with the beauty of your design. Your McGrory Glass account manager, together with our team of fire-rated experts, can offer you technical advice regarding your project specs and installation options.
