New Trimapanel® option eliminates need for secondary steelwork
A new version of the popular Trimapanel® insulated, secret-fix architectural wall-cladding system that spans between frames and eliminates secondary steelwork, has just been launched by Tata Steel.
The Trimapanel® FTF (frame-to-frame) System has the ability to span up to eight metres, enabling the product to run horizontally between main frame steelwork. This simultaneously elminates the cost of a secondary steelwork support system, reduces installation time and removes any dust traps, providing a clean and attractive finish to the internal face.
The FTF system has been tested in accordance with BS EN 14509 by the Steel Construction Institute (SCI) and all load span data carries SCI Assessed approval.
The system comprises of a pre-finished steel liner profile, a LPCB Approved polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation core and a micro-rib Colorcoat® pre-finished steel external weathering profile offering a wide range of colours.
The Trimapanel® FTF system is also available with a Colorcoat® high reflect finish to the internal face. This finish is a bespoke, 30 micron, two-coat liner designed to provide maximum light reflectivity. The increase in reflectivity together with the clear internal span helps reduce light energy requirements, associated operational costs and CO2 emissions.
