800m2 of Trisomet Roof insulated panels were utilised as a key part of the construction. As a one-fix component its consistency enables speed of installation and with a wide spaced trapezoidal steel external skin provides optimum performance for water drainage, strength and walkability.
Trisomet® carries Grade EXT-B and EXT-A approval by the LPCB. Also achieves fire resistance performance of up to 4 hours integrity and 30 mins insulation dependant on panel thickness. These are attained using standard fixing and sealing methods (external side-lap stitched at maximum 300mm centres).
The panel achieves a Broof (t4) performance for the external surface spread of flame and fire penetration on a roof in accordance with BS EN 13501-5. The internal surface of the panel also complies with a Class B s2 d0 rating in accordance with BS EN 13501-1. Following rigorous structural and fire performance testing with FM Global, Trisomet® panels have achieved FM Approvals certification to 4471: Class 1 Panel roofs, 4480: Class 1 Insulated wall and ceiling panels, 4481: Class 1 Exterior wall systems (unlimited height) - all highly stringent standards.
Specifying and installing FM Approved products provides assurance that the products have been objectively tested and conform 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 risks and be safe throughout its lifecycle.
500m2 of Trisobuild Wall insulated panels were also used, both systems also carry Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) approval to LPS 1181 part 1 for fire performance, helps to lower insurance premiums.
The use of Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® in black provided the facility with an attractive, modern design and feel. Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® gives long-term performance with the Confidex® Guarantee and providing peace of mind for up to 40 years.
