TECHNICAL Test Report

LIGHTWEIGHT

PENNY PANELS are easy to handle, erect and transport – providing flexibility in design and significant structural cost savings.

STRONG AND DURABLE

PENNY PANEL withstands knocks, scrapes and rough treatment. The panels are also suitable for seismic and cyclone prone zones.

FIRE RESISTANT

Wherever fire walls are needed,  PENNY PANEL  allows flexibility in design.
Its fire ratings are equivalent to those for masonry, with a marked
improvement in look and feel.

WATER AND TERMITE - RESISTANT

PENNY PANEL  is a termite resistant panel and its excellent water resistant
properties withstand adverse weather conditions.

EASY TO INSTALL

PENNY PANEL  arrive ready to install. The tongue-and-groove system allows rapid assembly, with panels being slid between top and bottom steel or aluminium sections and locked together. Panels can be cut with power tools and are ready to use or to fi nish with any decorative treatment.

INSULATING

PENNY PANELS provide excellent thermal and sound insulation. The sound transmission coefficient and thermal resistance is similar to masonry.

SAVES SPACE

Slim PENNY PANELS (50 or 75 mm) leave you with extra usable floor space without compromising on insulating properties.

SAVES TIME

PENNY PANELS simplicity suits rapid construction techniques. Factory cured
panels mean no on-site curing.The smooth surfaces are ready for surface finishing if desired.

SAVES MONEY

As installation does not require skilled labour or plaster coating, you save by not employing wet trades or other trades. Transport costs are reduced, due to the lightweight construction. Cost per m2 is also far lower than masonry.
