Durable Steel Structures

FIRE RESISTANT PANELS

     Product Presentation
Fire resistive insulated panel is a laminated sandwich consisting of metal facings bonded to a structural mineral wool core.  The non-combustible structural mineral wool boards are processed in the factory to maximize the core's compressive strength.

These panels with a 4" depth achieve a one hour fire resistive rating; 6" depth achieve a two hour fire resistive rating; and 10" achieve a three hour fire resistive rating.

     Uses and Applications
Fire resistive insulated panels are ideal for cold storage warehouses, bakeries and other food processing facilities  where there is a need to separate and protect at risk for fire building installations and contents.  The panels can be installed as exterior fire resistive separation walls or as demising walls inside foam panel clad warehouses and tilt up warehouses that contain multiple tenant leased space.

Panel Thickness:  3", 4", 5", 6", 7", 8", 9", 10"
Lengths: 8'0 to 40'0.  Maximum available length may be reduced due to panel thickness, end use and orientation.
Exterior Face:  Stucco embossed G-90 galvanized steel; 26 gauge and 24 gauge
Interior Face:  Stucco embossed G-90 galvanized steel; 26 gauge and 24 gauge and Type 304 stainless steel in 26 gauge unpainted.
Core:  Non-combustible structural mineral wool.
Panel Joint:  Side joint has a flush, double tongue and groove connection of the metal faces with an advanced integral spline to join the mineral wool core.
R-Value:  The core insulating properties are 3.61 "R" per inch

     Features and Benefits

  • Fire resistive exterior and interior walls can be installed in one step.  Multiple steps required with concrete block or numerous layers of gypsum wallboard are eliminated.

  • Panels provide good thermal performance and protection from the elements.  No additional steps to insulate the wall are necessary.

  • Walls can be disassembled, moved and reinstalled rather than having to be demolished, waste materials disposed of and the walls completely rebuilt.

  • Mineral wool panels have good sound reduction acoustical properties compared to foam insulated panels.
