The UK leaders in passive fire protection products and systems has announced a major new acquisition which has greatly extended its capabilities in the area of fire-rated glass protection. Promat UK has acquired the operations of Yorkshire-based C3S Securiglass, which has emerged in recent years as a major supplier of fire-resistant, safety, security and blast-resistant, glazing.
“This is excellent news for Promat as it really enhances our existing offering in fire-related glazing,“ comments Promat’s Strategic Business Development Manager, Ian Cowley. “Securiglass has earned itself an enviable reputation based on its ability to offer products which deliver outstanding and reliable performance, backed by impartial technical advice and first-class customer support. Those qualities will now be added to Promat’s existing offering in fire-rated glazing.”
Securiglass supplies a wide range of glass and related products for safety and security applications, including products that are resistant to attack by fire, ballistics and explosion. These include laminated glasses for integrity and insulation applications, as well as its Smokestream glazed smoke curtain system.
“Securiglass has been supplying its products to Promat for some time,” adds Ian. “Having these products available to us in-house will now allow us to be even more competitive when it comes to fire-related applications. It will also help us increase the level of technical and commercial support as well as the efficiency of our service and delivery offering.”
“Securiglass customers have been able to benefit from the superior level of support that its experienced staff have provided in helping customers achieve the required fire performance for their application, adds Ian. “We’re delighted to be working with our new colleagues and we jointly look forward to extending the level of service and expertise to the broader construction market in the coming months.”
