SF40- FR is a 40mm deep discreet fixed cladding panel. Cassette panels are lapped over each other with fixings placed discreetly in the panel joints offering a cost-effective facade solution in this fully drained and back ventilated cladding system. SF40-FR is mounted on a standard Helping Hand system including standard brackets and T or L-Section rails. Helping Hand brackets create the insulation/cavity zone as required. Colour matched stainless steel fixings are used in the panel recesses to mechanically fix the SF40-FR to the secondary support system.
Testing & Certification
SF40-FR is an independently tested “through wall” system and carries BS8414-2:2020 Fire Performance Classification in accordance with BR135 (3rd edition): 2013 and is suitable for use on high rise buildings*.
Spanwall chose the most rigorous test regime, assessing panels sizes much larger than the norm at the largest floor spans and deepest cladding zones practical**, to prove that the SF40-FR Fire Rated Rainscreen System is truly fit for whatever configuration you might specify.
SF40-FR is designated A2-s1,d0 to EN13501-1 (when PPC is applied to the aluminium substrate, A1 if Anodised) and has passed the Standard for systemised building envelope testing by CWCT. SF40-FR also carries the prestigious UL Mark – Performance of Curtain Walling and Rainscreen Cladding.
The SF40-FR independent test certificates and standard CAD drawings are available in Downloads via the Architects & Installers tab.
