Performance guaranteed

  • Available with Platinum® Plus system guarantee of 25 years, covering an approved range of market leading, high-end components.
  • 3-layer Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel used as standard. Available in a wide range of UV resistant colours that include metallics and are guaranteed for long-term performance for up to 40 years with the Confidex® Guarantee.

Independent product verification for risk free specification

Excellent sustainability credentials

  • The only PIR core flat panels on the market to be certified ‘very good’ to BRE’s responsible sourcing standard BES 6001, providing evidence of our corporate responsibility, that helps increase credits under the Responsible Sourcing of Materials section of BREEAM.
  • 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 soucing standard BES 6001.

EN-Construction-Product-Formawall | 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-Product-Formawall | Thermal and fire performance

Thermal and fire performance

The Formawall® 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

*Tata Steel figures computer modelled in accordance with EN ISO 10211, as stated in MCRMA Technical Note 14.

Fire safety

The Formawall® 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, Formawall® 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.
