FR-A non-combustible panels delivering safety and compliance

Our large range of finishes and thicknesses make FR-A panels ideal for use in both new construction projects and in replacing existing non-compliant spandrel panels. Panel Systems’ range of non-combustible architectural panels includes four types of A2 rated insulated panels for glazing and aluminium curtain walling applications. Manufactured at the company’s Sheffield based facility to approved ISO 9001:2015 management standards, the range (FR-A Types 2, 2a, 3 & 4) achieve A2-s1,d0 classification when tested against the procedures detailed in EN 13501-1:2018.

Each panel has been specifically designed with a fire resisting, non-combustible core of Nexus Lamella, the fire safe material for composite structures. FR-A panels are available in both Anodised and Powder Coated finishes. The panels go through a bespoke, controlled manufacturing process, which includes stringent quality checks on each component to ensure they meet the required standard of the tested specifications.

The panels also have excellent acoustic properties (calculations of which are available upon request from Panel Systems’ experienced technical team) and can be manufactured to meet specific U-value and wind loading requirements. In addition, the technical team can offer a full support service to meet the performance criteria for your specific application.
