Fire-Rated Façade Panel

BRUCHAPaneel® FP-F

Brucha’s FP-F (Façade Panel – Fire Rated) is our concealed fastened façade panel with a non-combustible mineral wool core. These versatile panels can be installed either vertically or horizontally and offer protection against the elements by providing all four control layers (air, vapor, water and thermal) along with fire protection in a single component.

The unique tongue and groove sidejoint features a bullnose along one edge allowing the use of concealed fasteners while providing a seamless appearance. Brucha’s standard oversized compression clip allows for superior panel spans, allowing greater flexibility in the design of structural supports. Our factory installed protective film at the sidejoints protects the core from unwanted moisture.

Available in six different profiles, one and two hour fire ratings and 10 different thicknesses depending on the required R-value, FP-F provides the options you need for just about any project.
