Trimapanel® FTF

Suitable for architectural wall cladding applications.


The Trimapanel® FTF System is an insulated, secret-fix architectural wall-cladding system comprising of a pre-finished steel liner profile, an LPCB Approved polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation core and a micro-rib Colorcoat® pre-finished steel external weathering profile offering a wide range of colours.

The system spans up to 8 m enabling the product to run horizontally between main frame steelwork. This not only removes the cost of a secondary steelwork support system but reduces the installation program and removes any dust traps providing a clean and attractive finish to the internal face.

The system is optionally available with a Colorcoat® high reflect finish to the internal face. This finish is a bespoke, 30 micron, two coat liner designed to provide maximum light reflectivity. This increase in reflectivity together with the clear internal span helps reduce light energy requirements, associated operational costs and CO₂emissions. Fully tested by the Steel Construction Institute (SCI) and all load span data carries SCI Assessed approval.

Features and benefits:

  • Micro-rib (MR) profile.
  • Flexible design allows vertical and horizontal panel installation.
  • Panel lengths up to 12 m and core depths of 70, 90 and 120 mm optimize the speed of installation and minimize waste while providing U-values down to 0.17 W/m²K.
  • Lower air permeability of the system reduces energy costs, carbon emission rates and facilities compliance with Building Regulations Approved Document L2 (E&W) and Technical Handbook 6 (Scot).
  • A wide range of flashing, ancillaries, corner and curved panel options available.
  • Third party validation of high standards of quality, thermal performance, fire safety, acoustic performance, air-tightness water penetration and environmental credentials.
  • Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) approval to LPS 1181-1, helps reduce insurance premiums and assures reaction to fire performance.
  • Available with Platinum® Plus system guarantee for up to 30 years, covering a pre-approved range of reputable, high end components.
  • Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® or Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel used as standard, offering a wide range of colours and long-term performance for up to 40 years with the Confidex® guarantee.
  • CE marked (performance in accordance with BS EN 14509).
  • Full traceability of all component materials and certified 'very good' to Building Research Establishment (BRE)'s responsible sourcing standard BES 6001, which helps increase credits under the Responsible Sourcing of Materials section of Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM).
  • All steel elements are 100% recyclable, without any loss of quality.

Standard product features

External profile:

Micro-rib (MR), skin thickness: 0.7 mm.

Internal profile:

Planked, skin thickness: 0.7 mm.

Core insulation:

PIR closed cell foam (CFC and HCFC free, zero ODP and GWP <5) to specification used in LPCB approval.

Length (minimum x maximum):

2.4 x 12 m. (Minimum length 'off-line': 300 mm). Panels ordered below the minimum 'on-line' length will require off-line cutting and will incur a surcharge.

Fire performance:

The system carries Grade EXT-B approved by the LPCB. The internal surface of the panel complies with reaction to fire Class B-s2 in accordance with BS EN 13501-1.

Thermal performance:

The panel construction offers highly consistent insulation performance, and the site formed junctions provide a practical and effective method of ensuring good thermal performance.


  • 90 mm thickness: 0.24 W/m²K.
  • 120 mm thickness: 0.17 W/m²K.

Acoustic performance/ Sound reduction (SRI) weighted values:

Based on a 90 mm core, weighted SRI Rw: 29.4 dB, consult technical literature for further details.
