Future-proofing your portfolio

Whilst the phenolic insulation and lack of cavity barriers meant this building was non-compliant, the existing ACM was classed as an A2 product and therefore did comply with the guidelines of limited combustibility. However, the client still chose to replace the existing A2 panels with an A1 solution to ensure it was future-proofed against ever-changing legislation.

  • A fully designed and engineered A1 solution
  • A2 ACM replaced with an A1 precoat panel; the panels had to be resized to allow for the constraints of the material
  • New A1 mineral wool insulation and secondary support system was installed
  • New cavity barriers to all openings, slab levels, compartment walls and service penetrations.
