Ruukki has supplied SP2D PIR UK sandwich panels for the construction of the new, luxury Park Regis hotel, Birmingham, which opened on March 29.
Ruukki’s SP2D PIR UK composite cladding panels, which are ideal for façades that must combine thermal insulation with appealing appearance, are both fire-safe and energy-efficient due to their low thermal conductivity and concealed-fixing joint design.
Prior to construction in the Park Regis hotel building, the panels were BS 8414 fire tested for specific use in the construction of a modern, multi-storey hotel building.
The SP2D PIR UK panels were subjected to rigorous BRE fire performance and thermal insulation testing that verified their full compliance with the strictest fire and buildings safety regulations.
Gareth Ellison, sales director of Ruukki UK, said: “We are pleased the hotel have opted for the SP2D PIR panels, a superior product we are very proud of, which is tested to BS8414 and meets BRE 135 for fire performance of thermal insulation for walls of multi-storey buildings.”
