The issue of cladding safety has been in the news for some time now, making it imperative for architects and building designers to ensure that the specified product meets code regulations.
Vitracore G2 from Fairview is the ideal facade product for all type A, B, and C buildings, from residential developments to large scale government infrastructure projects, where non-combustible materials are required.
A bonded aluminium panel that is ‘deemed non-combustible’ under the Building Code of Australia (BCA) Clause C1.9e, Vitracore G2 is fully tested as required to AS1530.1 and AS1530.3. The bonded aluminium panels can be installed like any other aluminium composite panel (ACP), but offer a safer option since Vitracore G2 does not contain combustible polyethylene.
With an overall thickness of 4mm and weight of 4.6kg/m², the Vitracore G2 panel is lightweight, which helps with installation. In comparison, a solid aluminium panel weighs 9kg/m². Vitracore G2 panels are, therefore, easier and faster to install, and especially useful on large infrastructure projects, reducing overall construction cost.
Vitracore G2 aluminium cladding panels are available in a wide range of colours and finishes, including the novel option of customisable graphic panels with the use of VitraArt.
Vitracore G2 adds safety and cost efficiency as well as a unique edge to your building.
