EN-Construction-Overview of Trimapanel® micro-rib

Overview
trimapanel microrib tata steel construction

Insulated, secret-fix, flat panel for a modern architectural appearance.

Trimapanel® micro-rib is an insulated, secret-fix, flat architectural wall-cladding panel that is quick and easy to install for fast build times. Available in 70mm, 90mm and 120mm insulation thicknesses and bespoke lengths up to 12m to minimise waste and provide U-values down to 0.17W/m2K.

The range of sizes, shapes, and colours, and the extensive fabrication options, offers a design flexibility that enables architects to create unique and modern design solutions including vertical and horizontal panel installation.

The unique secret-fix joint design allows primary fixings to be hidden from view and, together with the micro-rib profile, provides flat external aesthetics.

  • Unique secret-fix joint design allows primary fixings to be hidden from view and, together with the micro-rib profile, provides flat external aesthetics.
  • Flexible design allows vertical and horizontal panel installation.
  • Available with a wide range of flashing options, ancillaries, integrated window, and fabricated corner and curved panel options.

Independent product verification for risk free specification

  • Third party validation of high standards of quality, thermal performance, fire safety, acoustic performance, air-tightness, water penetration and environmental credentials.
  • Approved to FM Class 4880 and 4881 to an unlimited wall height.
  • LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) approval to LPS 1181 Part 1 helps reduce insurance premiums and assures reaction to fire performance.
  • Fire resistance performance of 15 mins insulation and 4 hours integrity achievable with enhanced fixing methods.
  • Manufactured in factory conditions operating to quality management standard BS EN ISO 9001:2015, environmental management standard BS EN ISO 14001: 2015 and occupational health and safety management scheme BS EN ISO 18001:2007.
  • Product specification and performance in accordance with BS EN 14509, European Product Standard for CE Marking.

Excellent sustainability credentials

  • Lower air permeability of the system reduces energy costs, carbon emission rates and facilitates compliance with Building Regulations (Part L2 & TH 6).
  • Full traceability of all component materials and certified ‘very good’ to BRE’s responsible sourcing standard BES 6001.

EN-Construction-Product-Trisomet | Platinum® Plus system guarantee

Platinum® Plus system guarantee

Our Platinum® Plus system guarantee offers coverage for 25 years. Simply fill in your project details using our easy-to-use online specification tool or contact us directly.

We understand that complex buildings need tailored solutions, so our online specification tool has been designed by our technical team to help you create the right specification to suit the needs of your project, making sure all roofing and cladding components listed and are compatible and perform as a system. It also stores all the specifications you create for ease of access in ‘my projects’.

Creating a Platinum® Plus specification give you free access to our technical team that will support you from design to completion – including those all-important final checks during installation.

Platinum® Plus incorporates only the highest quality components that are designed to do what they say but also provide you with unrivalled choice and flexibility in the specification of your building envelope. The many benefits and reassurance it provides is what sets it apart from all other guarantees, making it the number one choice for complete peace of mind to truly lower the cost of ownership throughout the life of the building.

The Platinum Plus system guarantee needs to be registered by the specifier prior to the tender package being distributed. To find out more click here, alternatively please contact our technical team so that we can help you to guarantee the longevity of your building click here to contact us.

EN-Construction-Thermal and fire performance of Trimapanel® micro-rib

Thermal and fire performance

The Trimapanel® micro-rib system complies with the minimum requirements of the Conservation of Fuel and Power sections of the Building Regulations, Approved Document Part L2, England and Wales and Technical Handbook – Scotland. The panel construction offers highly consistent insulation performance, and the site-formed junctions provide a practical and effective method of ensuring good thermal performance.  

Thickness (mm) U-value (W/m2K)*
70 0.31
90 0.24
120 0.17

 

Fire safety

The Trimapanel® micro-rib system has been tested to LPS1181-1 and is LPCB approved to both Grades EXT-B and EXT-A. Fire resistance performance of 15 mins insulation and 4 hours integrity is also achievable with enhance fixing and methods, contact the technical department for details.

The panel achieves an internal surface reaction to fire Class B s2 d0 rating in accordance with BS EN 13501-1.

Following rigorous structural and fire performance testing with FM Global, Trimapanel® panels have achieved FM Approvals certification to the following stringent standards:

4480: Class 1 Insulated wall and ceiling panels

4481: Class 1 Exterior wall systems (unlimited height)

Specifying and installing FM Approved products will provides assurance that the products have been objectively tested and confirm to the highest international standards. FM Approved roof and wall panel’s means you can be confident that your building envelope will withstand a broad range of fire and environmental risks and be safe throughout its lifecycle.

EN-Construction-Acoustic performance of Trimapanel® micro-rib

Acoustic performance

The acoustic performance of the Trimapanel® micro-rib system has been predicted using software developed by the Department of Applied Acoustics, University of Salford, under a research contract funded by the Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA). The results below are based on a 70mm core.

Frequency (Hz) SRI Values (dB)* Frequency (Hz) SRI Values (dB)*
100 12.5 800 27.6
125 14 1000 29.3
160 15.7 1250 31
200 17.3 1600 33
250 20.6 2000 34.7
