THE LEADING NON-COMBUSTIBLE , DEEMED TO SATISFY COMPOSITE CLADDING PANEL, TESTED TO AS1530.1
17 September 2018 – Fairview challenges ‘blind test’ in the UK
Manufactured by Fairview; Vitracore Generation 2 (G2) is deemed to satisfy non-combustible to AS1530.1 and AS1530.3 and compliant with Clause C1.9e (vi) (previously C1.12 part (f)) in accordance with the National Construction Code and can be used for any building facade. Vitracore G2 also successfully passed the requirements of BS8414 and BRE135, the current globally recognised standard for full-scale façade tests following testing in November 2017.
Furthermore, the testing showed that Vitracore G2 also met all but one criteria of the proposed AS5113 EW classification, including the various temperature criteria for flame spread. As expected for many varied and popular facade materials, the debris criteria for AS5113 was not met.
Visually, Vitracore G2 is the same as traditional composite panel; but what makes it different is the technology of the core, which is constructed from a 100% aluminium structure rather than combustible material – making it one of the most resilient nonflammable cladding solutions.
It is the same to fabricate and install as traditional ACP, and utilises the PPG coating system; thus is available in the same extensive colour range as Vitrabond.
The technology of the core also allows continual production; providing an exceptionally consistent and cost effective product. This high performance nonflammable cladding panel is ideal for all façade and soffit applications; providing the decisive solution to high demands and requirements.
The benefits of Vitracore G2 include its high mechanical properties and simple fabrication. The outstanding surface flatness of Vitracore is enhanced with a high quality PVDF coating system, which provides optimum resistance to weather and industrial pollutants in an unlimited range of colours, or a selection of natural finishes.
Vitracore G2 can be easily and accurately installed by a pre-made cassette system, requires minimal maintenance and comes with a 15 year warranty.
