FIBRE CEMENT SKIN THICKNESS

  • FC Sheeting [recessed edge] 4.5mm
  • FC Sheeting [square edge] 4.5mm

PANEL WEIGHT

  • 50mm x 600mm x 3.0 metre = 60kg [approx]
  • 75mm x 600mm x 3.0 metre = 62kg [approx]
  • 100mm x 600mm x 3.0 metre = 80kg [approx]

FIBRE PROPERTIES

In accordance with AS1530 Part 4 SAFE ENERGY-STYROCON PANEL has the following fire resistance levels when used as a non load bearing wall system:

  • 50mm panel – 1 hour
  • 75mm panel – 2 hours
  • 100mm panel – 3 hours

In terms of the Building Code of Australia (AS1530 Part 1), the SAFE ENERGY-STYROCON PANEL is deemed to be non-combustible.

FIRE HAZARD PROPERTIES

AS1530 Part 31 for SAFE ENERGY-STYROCON PANELS are:

  • Ignition Index 0
  • Flame Evolved Index 0
  • Heat Evolved Index 0
  • Smoke Development Index 0
  • Where 0 is the best possible result.

EPS BEAD

Combustion of EPS in the panel core does not pose a toxicity problem. The CSIRO Division of Building Research states that for foamed polystyrene the potential toxic hazard appears to be no greater than that for wood.

INSTALLATION

SAFE ENERGY-STYROCON PANELS are erected using light gauge steel framing at wall base and head. A variety of installation options are available incorporating channel, angle or totally concealed framing systems. SAFE ENERGY-STYROCON PANELS slip together using a tongue and groove jointing system and may be flush set or butt jointed according to project requirements.

PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS

SAFE ENERGY-STYROCON PANEL exceeds the Building Code of Australia structural tests for lightweight construction.

SAFE ENERGY-STYROCON PANEL is suitable for the application of a wide variety of surface finishes, including paints and aggregates.

The fibre cement facings are immune lo permanent water damage making SAFE ENERGY-STYROCON PANEL suitable for use in wet area applications.
