Pyroverre acquires the Cluzel mirrors in France

Pyroverre is a glass products processor based in Châteauneuf-du-Rhône (Drome), storer and distributor of fire resistance glasses from Pilkington (NSG group) for the southern part of French territory.
The company, created in 2010, is specialized in the transformation of Pilkington Pyrostop and Pilkington Pyrodur glass products. She cuts custom glass for a clientele made up of mirror makers and carpenters. Its design office is dedicated to specific customer requests to ensure compliance with fire regulations.
In 2015, the Côté Verre company, founded by Maryline Pereira, joined the group to offer online sales of all types of cut, shaped and then shipped glazing from the production workshop. The online configuration tool makes it easy for customers to order on the site.

Why the Cluzel mirror?
We asked Mathieu Guenin, manager of the company, to explain the reasons for this takeover. Mathieu Guenin and Maryline Pereira know that the implementation is the continuity of Côté Verre's activity, the demand from local customers being recurring and increasingly important. They then form an installation team. They quickly realized that it would be easier to do an external growth operation. They are interested in a possible acquisition and have found the miroiterie Cluzel in Montélimar, near Châteauneuf-du-Rhône. The manager, Danielle Fargier, wanted to retire. She was assisted by Eric Coin on a technical level with solid know-how.
The company's equipment allows for the cutting, shaping and drilling necessary for simple mirror-making operations. It has a van with a glass-holder gantry. The store has an area of ​​80 m2 and the workshop of 160 m2.
The clientele consists mainly of individuals and professionals as well as local administrations.
Integration and transformations
The takeover took place at the end of January 2021. Mathieu Guenin recruited Paul Fabre as agency manager as well as Dorotea Nacasabog as sales assistant. Dannielle Fargier will accompany them for three months to pass on his knowledge to them, while Eric Coin will continue his consulting, cutting and glass installation activity.
The existing store will host a new showroom in the form of a show apartment to enhance the offer of the mirror by presenting the products in situ. Railings, kitchen splashbacks, a floor slab, a staircase and a dielectric mirror hiding a screen. The turnover of around 300,000 euros is expected to rise to 600,000 euros.
Although the health crisis has slightly impacted Pyroverre's activity due to the shutdown of construction sites during the health crisis, Mathieu Guenin remains optimistic and believes that the French economy will rebound rapidly. At the same time, online sales via the Côté Verre site are experiencing significant growth, explains Maryline Pereira.


New float in France

The Glass Trösch group will invest in the construction of a new furnace at its French site in Homboutg to replace the current furnace from 2008 which was reaching the end of its life.
In addition, an extension of the site to 45,000 m² is planned.

Production from another site will also be transferred there during 2023, with the arrival of 80 employees.

Diamond resin wheels improving


    The wheel is lighter, resulting in less stress on the spindle

    The slats on the base have been specially designed so that the water is sprayed, and there fore reaches the point of contact between the grinding wheel and the glass uniformly and in the best way possible

    The material ensures greater rigidity and therefore more direct transmission of pressure levels set by operators

    The base guarantees perfect balance of the grinding wheel.

lAl these new features don’t definitely affect wheel quality in terms of bonding, that is still the same, but they simply improve performances from a mechanical point of view

Cekal clarifies the benefits of certified glass


On the occasion of the Building World Fair, the Cekal glazing certification body organized its biennial conference on the theme "Glass and urban planning: safety, quality of life and certified glazing". To address these themes, five experts were invited. The objective: to highlight the strengths and performance of tempered and laminated glazing, promote their use and promote Cekal branding.



A good glazing is not only synonymous with transparency, thermal and acoustic insulation or summer comfort. It is also a guarantee of a better quality of life. It is to recall the advantages of the glazing that he certifies that Cekal organized, on Batimat, his biennial conference. The chosen theme? "Glass and town planning: safety, quality of life and certified glazing".


During a round table, five experts took turns to bring their lighting and their cross testimonials on the topics of urban quality, regulation and certification. It was also to present exemplary achievements and to return to the use of Cekal certified glazings.


Glass, a guarantee of security

Sylvie Laroche, researcher at the Center for Research on Sound Space and Urban Environment (Cresson) reminded the importance of approaching the inhabited space "in terms of nuisance, function, comfort, landscape and atmosphere by combined logic of aesthetics, use and sensation ".


"The glass, through its play of transparency and light, its thermal performance, acoustic and safety naturally generates a feeling of comfort and well-being in inhabited spaces. The material also allows to fully enjoy the building, the space and the environment, "she said.


Marc Warnery, managing director and associate architect of Reichen and Robert & Associés, referred to urban redevelopment operations aimed at reintroducing urban "warmth, nature and humanity". Taking the example of the achievements of his agency, he said: "The coexistence of several functions within the same space, the search for spatial fluidity, the relation to the context, the logics of construction, the ethics of the architecture, are the recurring themes of their work which gives pride of place to the glass material ".


The notions of "light" and "transparency" then punctuated the speech of Fabienne Couvert, architect and director of architecture and urban planning (Arep group). "Light and glass material have always been a combination in the imagination of train stations. This is why the recent creations give pride of place to the material, capable of offering, through plays of light and transparency, a feeling of comfort, aesthetics and security conducive to the fluidity of the movements and to register in the environment and heritage ".


A changing material

Pierre Martin, national specialist "Light facades - Glassworks - Exterior joinery, APAVE" has brought his expertise in the regulations that defines the types of glazing used by type of work, its location and types of risks. He recalled that DTU 39 "Glazing and mirrors" is the main text to which "it should be referred". The text benefited in 2017 from a simplification and an adapted taking into account of the seismic risks. "The control of technical risks has, among other things, the objective of ensuring the safety of users by safety glazing, in the event of an earthquake, when using the structures, with regard to the risk of falling into the earth. empty, of falling dangerous elements, of injury in case of collisions or in case of fire, "he said.


The conference of course relied on the participation of a Cekal representative. Referring first to the security aspects, Jérôme Carrié, Secretary General of the certifying body, recalled that for the safety of people, "there are 2 classes 2B2 (clashes) and 1B1 (clashes and falls)". For the safety of goods, "we distinguish classes P1A to P5A (vandalism resistance), and classes P6B and P7B (burglar resistance). "


He also returned to the performance of glazing. Tempered glazing provides "increased resistance to mechanical and thermal stress and less risk of injury by fine fragmentation of the material into a multitude of small pieces, ensuring a lower risk of injury in case of breakage".


The laminated glass, consisting of two or more glasses assembled together with one or more spacers, can break, he said, but most of the time splinters remain glued to the interlayer, this which provides "protection of persons and property".


Concerning the Cekal marking, it concerns the quality of glazing: assembly, durability, performance.  It is awarded on the basis of audits and tests for a period of 6 months.


"For tempered glazing, compliance criteria relate to the quality of thermal quenching: fragmentation and surface stresses. For laminated glazing, the conformity criteria relate to the state of the peripheral zone after accelerated aging ", finally reminded the certifying body.
