Full Details

ALUCOPANEL® A1 is a composite panel consisting of two 0.5 mm thick aluminium cover sheets and a non-combustible mineral core (3 mm). The core consists of 100% non-combustible ingredients. ALUCOPANEL® A1 is currently the only composite panel in the Middle East region that is classified for the highest fire protection class A1 according to EN 13501-1. This means: non-combustible and also no smoke development in case of fire. A sustainable alternative to façade materials made of metal or other cladding. Like all ALUCOPANEL® products, ALUCOPANEL® A1 is easy to process and shape, weather resistant, impact resistant and has a high degree of flatness. The front side is colour-coated with the high-quality Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), making it highly resistant to weathering, UV radiation, corrosion and colour fading.

Colours

In addition to our stock range, ALUCOPANEL® A1 can also be colour matched to almost any RAL colour - allowing corporate colours to be matched with ease.

1) Above color samples displayed are for reference only, before ordering please double check the color of actual material.

2) To avoid possible reflection differences, it is imperative to install the panels in the same direction as marked on the protective film.

3) Please order the total requirements for one particular building in a single order, for metallic and solid colors, an optical change of color shade may occur due to the metallic particles of these lacquers.

4) Tolerance in color between batches: ∆E2.0 in accordance to ISO 7724-3 (EN 1396:1996)
