Common Myths Debunked

Myth #1 | Fairview, Australia

Myth #1

Vitracore G2 is a highly flammable product.

Vitracore G2 was the first bonded aluminium panel to be awarded the status ‘deemed non-combustible’ under the Building Code of Australia (BCA) under Clause C1.9e(vi) and is tested to AS1530.1 and AS1530.3.

To provide further peace of mind and demonstrate full scale performance Vitracore G2 has also been large scale tested to the requirements of AS5113 and BS8414, and did not propagate flame.

Myth #2 | Fairview, Australia

Myth #2

Vitracore G2 is easily damaged by hail.

There are a limited number of Vitracore G2 projects which have faced hail damage; they also saw significant hail damage to other materials considered to be acceptable such as steel roofing. In these cases, only the panels installed horizontally were ever damaged.

Vitracore G2 passed the FM 4473 Test, which proves the products ability to perform under impact, in such cases as hail storms.
