Panel Matters

Summary

The implications of the Association of British Insurers 24-page Technical Briefing on the Fire Performance of Sandwich Panel Systems are discussed with respect to panels which have been approved by the Loss Prevention Certification Board.

The suitability of approved panels for building applications is emphasised by quoting relevant paragraphs from the Technical Briefing.

Structures clad with panels to LPS 1181 may be considered non-combustible, and the use of such panels as external roof and wall cladding is not a major concern to the fire services. Panels which do not meet the requirements of LPS 1181 may be used in areas assessed to be of low risk.
