POLYPHEN® can be converted into steel clad panels cost-effectively, on existing continuous lamination lines that produce the widely used polystyrene/steel panels. These lines draw steel from coils, which is roll-formed and coated with glue to create panels with easy-to-assemble tongue-and-groove edges.
PØLYPHEN® Panels are "Approved Panels" under New Zealand Standards.
NZS 4541:2007 classes insulated panels as either Combustible or Approved.
PØLYPHEN® Panels are New Zealand made insulated panels that have FM Approval and are “Approved Panels”.
POLYPHEN® Panels have been used on many projects including buildings for Agrifeeds, Comvita, EastPack, Fonterra, Griffins, Goodman Fielder, Kaimai Cheese, La Bonne Cuisine and Tip Top.
Panel production is available from all leading NZ panel producers.
