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.

Overview
trimapanel ftf tata steel construction ford

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

Trimapanel® FTF (frame-to-frame) system is an enhanced panel with the ability to span up to 8m, enabling the product to run horizontally between main frame steelwork or alternatively vertically between base and eaves rails.

This not only removes the cost of a secondary steelwork support system but reduces the installation programme and removes dust traps, providing a clean and attractive finish to the inside of the building.

Trimapanel® FTF is an insulated, secret-fix architectural wall cladding system that is quick and easy to install for fast build times. The system comprises a pre-finished steel liner profile, a LPCB Approved PIR insulation core and a micro-rib pre-finished steel external weathering profile. Available in a range of colours, the panels come in 90mm and 120mm insulation thicknesses and provide U-values down to 0.17W/m2K.
