An A1-rated fire resistant solution
Our process for fire testing
Fire resistance is one of the highest requirements in modern-day architecture. Futural™ is a safe panel option, that also ensures there is no need to compromise on the appearance or technical details of a project.
On the surface Futural™ is similar to traditional composite panel. The difference is in the fact it is fabricated from 100 per cent aluminium, as opposed to its more combustible counterpart material like polyethylene.
This makes Futural™ a standout product for installations where non-combustible panels are required, such as high-rise buildings, hospitals or schools.
Futural™ is tested at a UKAS-certified facility.
- Non-combustible – A1-rated to EN13501-1 and BS8414-2 for fire performance
- Versatile – easily designed into a wide range of custom shapes, dimensions, perforated or curved
- Highly durable and impact resistant
- Lightweight – easy to install and maintain
- Available in a range of colours and finishes
