The Roof & Cladding Company
  • overview

TigerPROFILES Facade panels are an innovation through which we have aimed at providing Aluminum Composite Panel (ACP) clients with an alternative product that provides thermal insulation and fire properties with an outstanding aesthetic appeal in one panel instead of with a layered build up as is typical with ACP applications.

Our Facade panel is the result of a modification to our concealed fix wall panels. Having been outfitted with a groove and enfolds to the ends of the panels, our facade panels are fully designed to mimic the look and feel of ACP panels.

Fixed horizontally or vertically, our panels not only provide much needed architectural solutions to the market, but also provide outstanding resistance to fire, as evident in the fact that we may be the only company in the region’s whose panels have both horizontally and vertically successfully passed the stringent NFPA 285* as a mandated test by Dubai Civil Defense.

Characteristics

Our Facade Panels are:

  • Suitable for any external cladding applications;
  • Available in a variety of colors and materials that appeal to a wide range of client preferences and requirements.
  • Assembled in side-by-side overlapped relation.
  • Are watertight and present a durable resistance to most weather conditions.
  • Have a low dead weight due to the combination of lightweight materials.
  • Are simply and quickly erected.
  • Have a low maintenance cost due to the implementation of a selection of long life materials.
  • Are presented in a complete design and supply package.

In addition to their aesthetic appeal, our panels are environmentally friendly and ensure premium thermal insulation and fire resistance properties while providing unparalleled visual appeal to any premium building envelope.

Insulation Options

Our panels are available with a range of insulation options as follows:

  • Foam: PUR (B2) density of 35kg/m3 & 40kg/m3 – certified by Dubai Central Laboratory (Dubai Municipality);
  • Foam: Low index PIR density of 38kg/m3 – certified by Dubai Central Laboratory (Dubai Municipality);
  • Foam: Hi Index PIR: density of 45kg/m3 – certified by Dubai Central Laboratory (Dubai Municipality) and tested and classified as Class A against ASTM E 84 for exposed foam core;
  • Mineral Wool – certified by Dubai Central Laboratory (Dubai Municipality).

As part of our commitment to the environment and our Corporate Social Responsibility, we have endeavored to ensure that we only utilize environmentally approved N-pentane blowing agents that have been officially recognized to have ZERO Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and Global Warming Potential (GWP) less than eleven. 

Besides being weather tight, and the core approved by Dubai Central Laboratory our panels are tested and/or classified as:

  • Class A against ASTM E-84: Surface Burning Characteristics (achieved with Hi-index PIR Foam insulation);
  • Class E against EN 13501-1:2007 (achieved with foam insulation except PUR 35);
  • Fire Resistant as Class A for 31 minutes when tested against ASTM E-84 (achieved with Hi-index PIR Foam insulation).

**NFPA 285 is a Standard Fire Test Method for Evaluation of Fire Propagation Characteristics of Exterior Non-Load-Bearing Wall Assemblies Containing Combustible Components.
