A1 constructed Spandrel panels prove a safe replacement for Camden Tower Blocks

Posted: 23rd December 2019

Metalline’s fire-rated non-combustible Ultima Spandrel panels have been specified to replace the existing window panels on five tower blocks on the Chalcots Estate in Camden.

The decision by Camden Council to replace all combustible material from their tower blocks is part of a major upgrade to ensure the safety and security of their residents. A key influence on the decision to specify Metalline’s Ultima Spandrel Panel was the fabricators’ willingness to put their product through an independent fire performance test to prove its integrity.

The fire performance test was carried out independently by Efectis a leading provider of fire science and fire safety testing. As a result, Metalline’s Ultima Spandrel Panel is the UK’s first Spandrel Panel to achieve a fire rating of 60-minutes integrity and 60-minutes insulation.

Constructed from A1 non-combustible materials the Ultima Spandrel Panel can be specified in a range of finishes including anodised natural silver, bronzes from light to dark, black, regency gold 1 & 2 and a specialist Anolok finish in blue-grey and stone grey colours
