Mutipanel UK launches a new fire-resistant ACM panel
AlupanelFR, a new fire-resistant Aluminium Composite Panel that, thanks to its revolutionary core material, offers several advantages over the similar products already available.
Manufactured at Multipanel’s UK factory, AlupanelFR is a high-quality panel with a specially formulated core material, which is designed to offer enhanced fire resistance whilst also retaining excellent fabrication characteristics and outstanding adhesion strength. In addition, it is considerably lighter than other fire-resistant panels, making it much easier to transport, handle and install.
Mutipanel UK’s Product Manager, Ben Broderick commented: “We’re extremely excited about the qualities this new product can offer our customers. Whilst the panel’s rigidity is maintained, the new core material has achieved excellent results in bending tests and this combination of strength and flexibility means that it can be rolled, folded and formed really easily. It also machines exceptionally well and inflicts less wear on the cutting tools, thus saving users both time and money!”
Made to the same high standards as the other products in the Alupanel range, AlupanelFR has a reaction to fire classification of B-s1,d0 which, importantly, has been achieved without the use of toxic halogenated fire retardants. It is suitable for a wide variety of applications, especially in environments where improved fire classification is required, for example, interior cladding and signage in public buildings including airports, hospitals and shopping centres, as well as exhibition and retail construction.
