Not all insulated panels are the same

Introduction

Major fires in landmark buildings have far-reaching consequences. Beyond the terrible risk to life and obvious cost implications, a major fire can irreparably damage the reputation of the architect, owner and occupier of a building.

That is why it is so important to specify the right products whatever the building type, insisting on certified fire safety without compromising on performance, speed of build and availability; and avoiding the costly risks associated with inferior product substitution.
