Description

Rivet fixed aluminium cladding panels.

Vitrabond/A2:

Vitrabond/A2 is composed of two aluminium cover sheets sandwiched with a special homogeneous core material. It results in good surface flatness and high workability, with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio.

Suitable for both exterior and interior architectural applications, as well as for industrial and specialty product designs. Applications include exterior cladding, signage, corporate ID, column covers, interior partitions, canopies, equipment enclosures and kiosks.

- Features and benefits:

  • Cost effective.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Robust durability and strength.
  • A2-s1, d0 rated to EN13501-1
  • Lightweight.
  • Wide colour range available.
  • Available in natural zinc, stainless steel, natural aluminium and natural copper finishes.
  • Warranty available up to 20 years - consult manufacturer for details.

VitraDual:

A1 rated, non-combustible, highly impact resistant solid panel aluminium cladding, providing high durability and mechanical benefits. Designed to provide a non-combustible aluminium panel solution that can be fitted as both cassette panels and flat sheets with no oil-canning appearance, offering a cost effective, non-combustible and aesthetically pleasing alternative to other flat sheet panel systems. VitraDual can be combined with Vitrabond cladding panels when required.

The system uses a 2 mm or 3 mm thick cladding panel which is a durable, impact resistant solid panel and can be prefabricated through curving, rolling or perforation. VitraDual uses the Vitrabond/ Vitracore polyvinylidene fluoride or polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) coating system which can be colour matched or provided in RAL colours, stone and wood effect finishes. VitraDual cladding panels are prefinished which means they do not need fabrication prior to the coating process.

- Features and benefits:

  • Lightweight - rigid and lightweight, and therefore also easy to install.
  • Non-combustible - A1 rated (to BS EN 13501-1) covering any colour and air gap.
  • Versatile - Can be custom designed into a wide range of shapes and dimensions along with perforated or curved in some applications.
  • Easy to maintain compared to polyester based coatings.
  • CWCT tested and accredited.
  • Highly durable and impact resistant, can be used effectively in high traffic areas.
  • Paint system - uses the highly recognised PVDF KYNAR 500 or FEVE paints known for their high durability, providing the optimum resistance to weather and industrial pollutants.
  • Warranty available up to 30 years - consult manufacturer for details.
  • Extremely Flat - low surface stress.
