When it comes to protecting your facility from fire, you need the right panels. Ideally, your panels can resist both thermal transmission and sound. When the panels prevent thermal transmission, you won’t have to worry about the fire spreading from one area to the next due to combustibles next to the wall. That’s why DuraWall™ is a great option for many facilities.
What Are DuraWall™ Panels?
The DuraWall™ system consists of a composite panel faced in painted or galvanized steel with a high-density mineral fiber core that is non-combustible. The edges of the panel fit together easily using an interlocking male-female joint. When you are looking for a fire-resistant panel system, you want to make sure that it is UL/ULC or ETL listed. The good news is that the DuraWall™ panels have a fire rating of up to two hours. You can use them for any fire separations that are non-load bearing.
The right fire rated panels will offer good protection against fire in your facility. When you are looking for the best product, you’ll benefit from having two hours of protection. Because the fire resistant materials are superior and have many safety characteristics, you can increase workplace safety at your building.
If there is ever a fire, you will have enough time to make sure that everyone leaves the building. DuraWall™ panels give you extra time that may mean the difference between saving your employees, expensive machinery, inventory, and equipment and losing them. Of course, the safety of you and your workers always comes first.
Because of the materials and design of DuraWall™ panels, you can use them in multiple industries. For example, manufacturing companies, chemical plants, factories, and processing plants can all benefit from fire protection provided by DuraWall™.
You can easily install and remove the panels. That way, you can move them if you decide they would be better elsewhere in your facility. You can get large panels, so your contractors can quickly fit a large area with fire protection. That can help reduce labor costs for you. Even though you can have them installed quickly, they are of high quality, giving you peace of mind.
Meeting Safety Regulations
You can use DuraWall™ safely indoors or outside. It has R-ratings of up to R-23. One of the benefits is that the panels can receive LEED credits because they are environmentally sustainable. They have zero ozone-depleting potential, and they contain no hydrochlorofluorocarbons. Once the usable life span is over, you can recycle the panels.
