- FIRE REACTION
The best characteristic of solid aluminium is that there is no fire risk.
It is a product classified by the European legislation Class A1 fire reaction, in accordance with EN 13501-1 standards, that means it is a non-combustible material. Solid aluminium is absolutely incombustible, it doesn't generate toxic fumes.
- INTERNATIONAL COMPLIANCE
LUXEWALL 2.3 is A1 class material (non-combustible).
According to European standards (which may vary slightly from state to state as a result of incorporation into national legislation, but which will be harmonised in the foreseeable future), incombustible materials must be used in all buildings taller than 20 metres (or less, depending on whether fire escape staircases are installed) and in all public buildings, such as schools, hotels, hospitals etc., irrespective of height.
For example, for a school or hotel in Italy, which must be equipped with fire escape routes leading, in the majority of cases, to a fire escape staircase, the Ministerial Decree of August 19th 1996, concerning places of public entertainment (which, in the absence of specific legislation is also applicable to other public buildings, such as schools) states that “the outer wall of the building against which the staircase and relative fixtures are installed must meet fire resistance requisites of at least REI 60 for a width equal to the projection of the staircase plus 2.5 metres one each side". Clearly, any such wall built using inflammable external panels could never attain a rating of REI 60. Moreover, it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain fire insurance for private buildings clad with inflammable materials.
- MECHANICAL WORKINGS
Forming panels from solid aluminium is much easier. Curvatures with radii of just a few millimetres can be achieved simply with a bending press, rendering the scoring usually needed for sharp bends unnecessary.
This means saving of time, costs and greater rigidity of the panel.
If sharp bending is expressly requested, the scoring of LUXEWALL 2.3 is very easy. Solid aluminum, on the bottom of the scored lines can be left up to 1,5 mm full metal and bend so the panels according to the 90° pattern, obtaining in this way a considerably resistant panel also in correspondence of the scored corners.
- RECYCLING PURCHASE COST
Solid aluminium is totally recyclable, which means it can be remelted and all the waste can be used again. This means that besides being eco-compatible, there is no cost in disposing of solid aluminium rather its value can be completely recovered.
This makes LUXEWALL 2.3 a long-lasting choice, like a bank, which gives you a return on your investment over time.
With an expected life of more than 30 years, any waste will still continue to be an important financial asset.
- GARANTEE PVDF PAINT
The LUXEWALL2.3 panels are feature an exclusive PVDF, high thickness coating, guaranteed for up to thirty years. All the paints used contain at least 70% fluorinated polymer resin.
These materials, when applied to appropriate substrates, result in coatings offering a number of significant advantages, including:
– outstanding colour stability
– durability and strong weather resistance
– proven resistance to chalking, abrasion and chemicals.
Pvdf coating: 20 to 40 years guarantee
- IMPACT TEST
The impact test measures impact resistance of an aluminium panel.
the Impact resistance is very high in solid aluminium, because the impacting part knocks against a 2/3 mm metal sheet, which exercises a higher resistance to the movement. Therefore the effect of a hailstorm on a facade coated with solid aluminum panels would be minimal.
- DRILLING PENETRATION
The 3 mm of solid aluminium make the material very resistant to drilling
- COLOURS RANGE
LUXEWALL2.3 is available in an almost unlimited range of colors, offering more than 2000 different finishes whose include iridescent, metallic, almost all Ral colors and endless possibilities.
The R & D lab is developing special anti-graffiti paint, scratch-resistant, self-cleaning, anti-static, self-reflective.
- ALUMINIUM ALLOY
The type of alloy used in the manufacture of a panel is fundamental for its quality and performance. The panels resistance to wind pressure and stress is proportional to the strength of the aluminium alloy used in its manufacture. LUXEWALL 2.3 use exclusively the Leagues More performance, namely the 5005 or 5754, depending on need different project requirements.
