Enamelled steel panels tested for fire resistance

Vitraclad vitreous enamelled steel cladding panels manufactured by Vitrex have passed stringent fire tests with flying colours. The company recently submitted a set of 13mm thick Vitraclad sample panels to Firelab in Pretoria for an assessment of their fire-resistant properties. The light gauge panels tested had a 0.7mm Vitraclad facing, 12mm thick calcium silicate core, and a 0.5mm galvanised mild steel backing.
