Select our steel build designs, secure in the knowledge that we use fire retardant materials that comply with UKs stringent standards

Picture of building on fire

Ensure your build design is includes fire safety in its list of requirements.

When deciding on the type of building you require, don’t forget to factor in the choice of building material most suitable for your design and needs. Cost is commonly the overriding factor; yet, other factors such as weight, ease of construction, strength, sustainability, availability and fire resistance should also be taken into account before the final design is finally agreed upon.
With these additional factors in mind our steel build designs incorporate fire resistant materials throughout.
Floor base materials.
We recommend concrete bases for our building designs, as reinforced concrete does not pose a threat in the event of fire and resists the spreading of fire. Its large mass also helps to keep a more constant temperature within the building. This can make the floor base an excellent insulation and fire retardant, improving the sustainability and safety of the building.
Materials used on our walls and roofs.
Our single steel and insulated cladding is fire retardant – it has performed well in rigorous tests and British Standards, It passed the spread of Flame Test with the highest classification level and the panels successfully achieve an FAA/SAA rating. Our steel building designs comply with today’s UK fire regulations and standards.

What is a PIR Panel?

Use these composite steel panels for improving heat and sound insulation

Our previous blog referred to PIR composite panels which are insulated steel panels.  One of customers has read our blog and asked what PIR acronym means.

PIR is an abbreviation for Polyisocyanurate, which is a thermoset plastic typically produced as a foam and used as rigid thermal insulation. PIR composite panels are typically made from foam and used as rigid thermal insulation sandwiched between the steel panels. Its thermal conductivity has a typical value of 0.16 BTU*in/hr*ft2*°F (0.023 W/(mK)).

Composite insulated panels can be used for fabrication of steel buildings. The panels are prefabricated PIR sandwich panels which are manufactured with corrosion-protected, corrugated steel facings bonded to a core of PIR foam and used extensively as roofing insulation and vertical walls (e.g. for warehousing, factories, office buildings etc.).

Don’t feel the pinch in this cold weather – opt for an insulated steel build design

Composite Cladding Panels have two coated steel profiles bonded to a core of PIR insulation which can be used for walls and roofs.
Our insulated building designs also include guttering, flashings, sealants and roof lights.  Our build design can include these insulated steel composite cladding panels, which  offers quick coverage and rapid completion of a weatherproof building giving a high performance, quality  building aimed at keeping its occupants warm and dry.
