ULTIMA NON – COMBUSTIBLE ALUMINIUM INSULATED SPANDREL PANELS
Due to the ban on combustible cladding being used on buildings above 18 metres as detailed in part B of the Building Regulations, Metalline has developed the Ultima non-combustible range of Spandrel Panels.
The Ultima range of panels have undergone testing to EN13501-1 and achieved both A1 and A2 – s1,d0 classifications.
The Ultima Insulated Spandrel Panel can be constructed using a range of face finishes dependant upon the classification required, the thickness of the insulation can also be varied to accommodate ‘U’ values on your project.
Research and Development Metalline’s continued commitment to R&D has seen them time and again achieves firsts. Metalline was the first UK fabricator to be able to offer 6000mm x 2000mm Spandrel Panels. Now after further investment Metalline is the first UK fabricator to be able to offer (non-combustible) Spandrel Panels tested to EN13501-1
Thermal Performance Advice on how to meet specific U values to comply with thermal performance requirements can be given by our technical team.
Fire Performance The Building (Amendment) Regulations, SI 2018/1230 came into force on 21st December 2018. The amendment implements the promised ban on combustible cladding by prohibiting the use of combustible materials anywhere in the external walls of high-rise buildings over 18m above ground level, containing one or more dwellings.
Metalline’s Ultima Insulated Spandrel Panel range has been tested to EN13501-1 and achieved both A1 and A2 – s1,d0 classifications. Making the range perfect for new build or the replacement of non-compliant Spandrel Panels.
Acoustic Performance Ultima Insulated Panels can be specified to meet specific acoustic performance criteria. Using insulation cores tested by The Sound Research Laboratories, Metalline can produce panels for most environments. They have been successfully specified on buildings in high noise areas such as airports, city centres and industrial environments.
Our aluminium Insulated Spandrel Panels are available in a wide variety of finishes. Some of our Anodised finishes are listed below:
Bronzes (light to dark)
Regency Gold I & II
Blue – Grey
Stone – Grey
The anodised finish means the A1 rating is achievable. We also have a full range of PPC finishes available which an A2 fire rating can be achieved with.

Eastleigh Borough Council
Metalline glazed in Ultima insulated panels have provided the finishing touch to the external façade of the recently refurbished council offices in Eastleigh Hampshire.
The refurbishment has turned a dilapidated 1970's office block into a 'BREEAM Excellent' building with a bright and airy interior and a visually stunning exterior that has created an iconic landmark within Eastleigh city centre.
Designed by architects Studio E, the BREEAM Excellent rated building features over 2,000 panels in varying lengths and depths up to 4500mm and 800mm respectively, finished in four different RAL colours The company also supplied a range of ventilated Bird’s Beak style panels, pressings, copings and cills that further added to the overall aesthetic of the building’s façade.
Metalline has received top marks for the finish to the external façade of the Kensington Aldridge Academy in North Kensington.
