FRS is a recommended installer of Speed Panel which offers a fast and effective fire protective solution for a wide range of construction projects or building refits.
With tongue and groove fittings, Speed Panel is a complete fire rated product ready for installation. Made from galvanized steel surrounding an aerated concrete core, when installed correctly, Speed Panel has a fire rating of up to -/120/120 up to 6.0m vertically and 4.5m horizontally unlimited in height. This makes Speed Panel one of the strongest lightweight building products available and an ideal solution for many projects.
Speed Panel can be used as the external cladding to create a weatherproof seal allowing the internal building components of a build project to be completed earlier. This offers a major advantage for many clients in terms of overall build timeline and budget.
FRS has used Speed Panel in many major projects including Eureka Tower, Royal Children’s Hospital, Crown Casino and Melbourne Convention Centre. Applications include duct shafts, air shafts, lift shafts, plant rooms, and lift wells, air plenum walls, vertical walls and apartment walls plus external applications such as boundary fire walls.
Speed Panel’s thin design, acoustic properties, ease of installation plus fire rated performance standards that exceed BCA requirements means more developers and building owners find this product satisfies their exacting requirements.
