Frequently Asked

Indurabond is our ACP (aluminium composite panel) and has a fire retardent composite core. Induracore G2 is our ALP (aluminium laminated panel) and has a pressed aluminium core.
Aluminium panel is installed by specialist fabricators, they use CAD programmes to position each panel on the building then cut and fold the panels to fit.
Fire ratardent ACP has a core that has a minimum 70% non-combustible mineral filled core. The FR core contains hydroxide, a non-combustible mineral designed to release water vapour and supress fire spread.
Indurabond FR has unrestricted use on projects under 10 meters in height, often used on high end residential projects, commercial and industrial warehouse and office buildings
Oil canning is the waviness seen in metal panels and is an inherent characteristic of light-gauge, cold-rolled flat metal products. It is most commonly seen in the broad flat areas of a metal roof or wall system. Oil canning can occur with any type of metal material used in construction. One common cause is the expansion and contraction of the metal as it heats and cools during the day, and when this happens unevenly it causes the panel to oil can. However this is doesnt happen to ACP and ALP panels due to the fact it has three layers and is 4mm thick. The three layers of aluminium in this panel hold each other from expanding and contracting which limits the oil canning.
Yes, we have BIM files for all our standard fixing details for Induracore G2, Indurabond and Induraplate panel systems. These are available in DWG, DXF or PDF formats. They are to large to have them loaded on the website, so please get in touch via email: [email protected] and will have a link sent through you can download them from.
We mostly sell through our specialist installer network due to the difficulty in fabrication and installation, but if you have needs outside building cladding you can send an email to [email protected] and one of the sales team will get in touch to assist where possible.
Most caravans/trailers use an aluminium panel that has a polyethelene core which cannot be used as a cladding on buildings. This is a cheaper product and we do not sell this panel. Indurabond has a fire retardent core and this makes it more expensive and therfore not often used on caravans/trailers.
