Our production team is gearing up for a busy year ahead for our range of non-combustible FR-A glazing infill panels.

Since launching the FR-A panels at the end of 2022, we have experienced high demand from contractors who’re switching to using non-combustible materials within the external walls of buildings over 11m in height, in order to meet latest Approved Document B Building Regulations. In these cases, building materials must now be Euroclass A1 or A2-s1, d0.

The FR-A panels are manufactured at our centrally located factory to approved IOS 9001:2015 management standards and achieve A2-s1,d0 classification when tested against the procedures detailed in EN 13501-1:2018. Our non-combustible architectural panels are suitable for both glazing and curtain walling applications. They provide architects, developers and contractors with peace of mind when specifying panels to achieve the latest building regulations.

Our FR-A panels are available with both Anodised and Powder Coated (PPC) aluminium facings, in a variety of thicknesses. Each panel goes through a controlled manufacturing process, which includes stringent quality checks on each component to ensure they meet the required standard of the tested specifications. As well as meeting fire safety regulations, these FR-A panels offer excellent aesthetics, being available in a range of colours and finishes.

Each panel is made up of a fire resisting, non-combustible core of Nexus Stonewool Lamella, the fire safe material for composite structures. The core has superb integrity, rigidity, flatness and built-in structural performance and its uniform vertical fibre structure provides optimum mechanical performance. The unique open filament net allows a strong adhesive bond, which is complemented by our specially selected adhesives, which are applied to ensure uniform, consistent coating.

The FR-A panels have been carefully designed and engineered to offer architects and developers a wider choice when specifying glazing and curtain walling materials that meet the strict building regulations for fire safety.

They offer excellent acoustic properties and are supplied in custom sizes and bespoke shapes to suit customer requirements. In addition, our dedicated technical team can offer an additional support service offering U-value, acoustic and wind loading calculations.

We are excited to be celebrating 50 years of trading in 2024. Over the past five decades, our company has built a reputation for high quality manufacturing, which includes carrying out stringent quality checks on each component to ensure they meet the required standard of the tested specifications.
