Laminex and Melteca fire-retardant surfaces

FIre risk minimised with Laminex fire-retardant surface


Many commercial projects have stringent requirements when it comes to fire safety, and this extends to the use of fire-retardant surfaces.

But this doesn't mean aesthetics need to be compromised, as these fit-outs illustrate. Laminex New Zealand manufactures a range of decorative surface products that have achieved the highest possible fire rating, a Group 1S, as tested in accordance with ISO5660 and New Zealand Building Code Verification Method C/VM2 Appendix A.

Laminex Fire Retardant HPL applied to Lakepine FR MDF, for example, is well suited to high-wear applications, such as countertops, store fixtures, bars, benchtops and wall linings – areas where durability is important. This laminate is available in all Laminex colours.

Melteca Fire Retardant is particularly suited to shelving, furniture, cabinetry and most vertical applications. This laminate is also available in all Melteca colours. Both fire-retardant laminates are appropriate for commercial applications where fire-retardant materials are required.
