PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS

Noise resistance

Choosing the right materials and connection details as well as the quality of the work on site, are essential factors in getting satisfying noise reduction and thereby good living conditions inside a building.

Due to the very high quality of materials used and the product’s high density, BPC Group’s precast concrete panels have excellent noise reduction qualities, which can be designed to achieve all the requirements of the building.

Fire resistance

Panels produced by BPC Group meet the highest requirements for non-flammability and fire resistance, and can be designed for up to 4 hours fire resistance.

For fire rating of load bearing and non-load bearing wall structures, reference is made to BS 476: Part 8: 1972.

Thermal resistance

As previously described, BPC Group’s sandwich panels can achieve U-values as low as 0.25 W/m2K.  In aiming to reduce power consumption in residential, commercial and industrial buildings, local municipality issue maximum allowable Thermal Transmission U-value. BPC Group can design the panels to meet these requirements.
