What are aluminium composite panels?
Aluminium composite panels, also known as ACP or sandwich panels, are two thin, flat, aluminium panels bonded to a non-aluminium core. It’s worth noting not all ACP panels were made the same and those with more than 30% polyethylene in the core are considered the most dangerous. To protect your home or business, consult Cladding Compliance for a comprehensive ACP combustibility report in Sydney.
What makes ACP or combustible cladding dangerous?
There is a core made up of polyethylene that is sandwiched between two aluminium panels and when exposed to heat will combust causing a rapid rate of fire spread. In recent history, there have been disastrous incidents that have garnered attention to the dangers of combustible cladding. Most notably the Melbourne Lacrosse Building fire in 2014, and in 2017 the destruction of the Grenfell Tower in London in which 71 lives were lost.
As a result, state governments across the country have introduced strict new laws in which buildings must be audited to identify if there is a presence of aluminium composite panels. These include:
- Aged-care buildings, hospitals and other care facilities
- Public assembly buildings including schools, theatres, churches, cinemas, and more
- Residential apartment buildings
- Hotels, student accommodations, hostels, and more
