Aluminium Composite Panels

Vitracore/G2 is an A2 Fire Rated Cladding material comprising an aluminium profiled core between two aluminium skins. Vitracore is a 4mm thick, high performance, high durability composite panel manufactured by Valcan. It looks and acts like other composite panels but benefits from a non-combustible core. The Vitracore technology provides a high degree of combustibility protection on any building making it particularly suitable for high rise structures over 18 metres. The simplicity and efficiency of the core means that the product is exceptionally consistent, easy to fabricate and fold (like traditional ACM) and cost effective.

Benefits of Vitracore/G2

  • Deemed Non-combustible – achieved A2-s1, d0 when tested in accordance with EN 13501-1:2007+A1: 2009
  • Cost effective
  • Large stock holdings and low lead times
  • Achieves A2 rating to EN13501-01 standard (suitable for use on all buildings, including those over 18m high)
  • Visually matches other composite panels
  • Versatile fabrication options
  • Colour match finish options and huge range of standard colours

Vitracore is exceptionally durable with excellent scratch and impact resistance. It is impervious to UV rays and extreme weather conditions and also has high resistance to acids and alkilis making it ideal for heavily polluted areas.
