Flame Retardant ACP’s – Fire at Mahavir Plaza

Flame Retardant ACP’s – Fire at Mahavir Plaza 825 510 admin

Another incident of fire broke out on the high-rise in Airoli at Mahavir Plaza. To put out the fire, it was required to call for five water jets from Airoli, Rabale MIDC, and Nerul. Though no casualties have been reported it calls to attention the requirement of Fire Retardant or Flame Retardant (FR A1 | B1 | B2). FR Cladding has been added as renewed regulations for construction

What is Cladding Material

Cladding is a material which is applied around and outside a building to improve appearance and energy efficiency.
Colorful red and green panels designed to soften and improve the insulation of buildings and structures

Why invest in Flame Retardant ACP materials?

If you follow our Social Media regularly, we updated the Mayor of Mumbai, Mr. Vishwanath Mahadeshwar, visit Viva’s Booth at International Trade Fair On Façades & Products when he discussed our Flame Retardant Product & New Stone Series and discussed the importance of Flame Retardant ACPs in the safety of people in Corporates and Housing.

The Government has been bringing out new regulations to include Flame Retardant Product for new constructions to avoid cases like Mahavir Plaza and various other incidents

How does Flame Retardant ACP’s help?

In case of a fire, you want to know that the walls of your house will protect you while your family seeks safety. Fire burns wood, and melts vinyl, or uPVC, almost instantly. Viva ACP material coated with Flame Retardant cladding will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire.

Viva’s FR A1+, A2 And B1 cladding, weatherboards and building facades are non-combustible, compared to wood cladding and uPVC cladding. With a high density and dimensional stability, the ACP is naturally resistant to adverse events such as fire, extreme weather conditions and is fireproof and waterproof.

Our cladding is used all over the world, including fire-prone areas where our products are specified to help resist fire attack from burning embers, radiant heat or flame contact.

As we have our own Colour Coating line, we can manufacture this material in any color and quantity, so one doesn’t have to compromise on looks when prioritizing safety.

In the infamous case of Grenfell Tower in Kensington, West London, Cladding was included as part of a £9million refurb completed in May 2017.

The material used in the cladding on Grenfell was the cheaper, more flammable version of the two available options.

Fireproof cladding initially planned for Grenfell was reportedly downgraded so the council could save money.
Such a decision eventually cost the lives of many innocent.

Without proper precautions, fire can claim lives, destroy property, and leave chaos and devastation in its wake.

Whether you’re a Business Owner, Builder or Architects, you’re required to keep the threat of fire minimal by Government Regulations and Duty of Care.

Our experience with Flame Retardant ACPs means we can reduce the threat of fire costing you money – or worse – and protect you from potential damage and litigation.

Fire Retardant ACP Panels and Why Are They Important

Fire Retardant ACP Panels and Why Are They Important 800 400 admin

Concrete, steel, and wood is the preferred material for the majority of buildings sprawling through the cities. These buildings, whether residential or commercial, need to demonstrate excellent safety and fitness to preserve human lives during physical distress. Fire is one such threat that takes away thousands of lives in almost the countries annually and results in property damage piling up to billions of dollars. So the question is, do we have fire retardant building materials that can preserve the precious human lives? The answer is fire retardant ACP Panels or Aluminum Composite Panels. We will discuss Kamala Mills Tragedy to explain the benefits of Fire Retardant ACP Panels clearly.

Kamala Mills Tragedy: A Case Study

On 28 December 2017, a fire broke out in the famous compound of Kamala Mills in Mumbai. Kamala Mills housed restaurants and pubs in the building floors, and the place was a hotspot for people who enjoy the nightlife. There were two pubs associated with the fire that resulted in the death of 14 people (Official figure) and seriously injuring dozens of others. The pubs were 1Above and Mojo’s Bistro.

At 12:22 am past midnight, the violent fire spread to both the pubs and to save their lives the guests started running. A few moments later, the wooden rooftop caught fire and collapsed. As per the investigative reports, this event was a significant factor in increasing the death toll. Investigators later revealed the pointers which lead to this weird incident and loss of precious lives. These were:

  • Administrative carelessness and lack of adequate fire safety measures.
  • Building material was another primary reason for spreading of the fire. Also, the rooftop was covered with cloth and made up of wool.
  • The building lacked fire-retardant building material which could have stopped the fire.

Kamala Mills fire incident case study reveals that had the building premises contained ACP panels at crucial places like rooftops, exits, and walls, the fire would have kept from spreading. Apart from that, lack of fire-safety equipment in the two pubs is another reason for the rapid spread of the fire.

Aluminium Composite Panels at a Glance

Aluminium composite panels or ACP Panel consist of three layers; Two external layers are made up of thin aluminium sheet, while the middle layer is made up of a low-density core. The low-density base is usually made up of Polyethylene foam.

Due to the ‘sandwiched’ foam layer between two aluminium sheets, this type of panel is known as the ‘Sandwich Panel’ or ‘Sandwich Structured Composite.’

ACP Properties and Features

Sandwich panels or the Aluminum Composite Panels possess many excellent properties and characteristics suitable for constructing a safe building. These are:

Thermal Resistance

Aluminum Composite Panels have different thermal conductivity values. These values depend on the sandwich material of the core. ACP panels are often poor conductors of thermal energy, meaning that they do not conduct heat very well.

This characteristic is due to the design of the board itself. The gap between the two outer layers minimises the thermal bridges, hence the poor thermal conductivity.

Mechanical Properties

Aluminium composite panels display great strength, rigidity, structural integrity, and reduced weight when used in buildings.

ACP panels have a high strength to weight ratio primarily due to

1) Aluminium being light in weight.

2) Low mass-density of the fire retardant core material. Usually, the ACP panels weigh close to 4 kg/meter square which is perfect for reducing building efforts and maintenance.

Fire Retardant

Aluminum Sandwich Panels are not fire retardant. To get fire-retardant aluminium composite panels, you’ll have to consult your vendor/dealer. Fire retardant ACP panels are similar to any other sandwich panel regarding design. The only difference lies in the use of ‘Fire Retardant Core Material’ and the thickness of the external aluminium sheets.

Viva Fire Retardant ACPs

All these superior physical characteristics of the panels make them an excellent option to give a beautiful finish to the exteriors and interiors of the building.
