Factory Mutual UBC 26-3 Test (Room Test)
This test was performed with 250mm (10 inch) thick steel clad panels with very good results, meeting all requirements for an FM Class 1 fire rating (the highest classification for fire resistance). The panel design was standard tongue-and-groove, with 0.6mm steel skins.
At last, the long awaited solution to the world-wide problem of fire risks associated with foam core sandwich panels.
