Thermopal won award for its non-combustible decorative panel
Thermopal, a subsidiary of Pfleiderer AG, has once again won an award for
its non-combustible decorative panel “flameprotect compact”. At the ZOW supply
fair in Verona, engineered wood manufacturer Thermopal received the M
Technology Award 2009. Jurors lauded the non-combustible decorative panel
as an excellent supplier product.
Tower block fitted with more than 300 panels
Since it was launched on the market in January 2009, “flameprotect” has
proved itself many times over in practical use – and is now also to be used in
the Mobimo Tower in Zurich, Switzerland. Pfleiderer subsidiary Thermopal is
supplying more than 300 panels of this A2-s1-classified (d0 according to German
guidelines, and 6q3 according to Swiss guidelines) non-combustible material
for the tower block project, which is to include a top hotel and luxury
apartments. As this fire-resistant board can be coated in any of more than 300
designs, the project architectural office of Diener & Diener and the interior design
studio Hannes Wettstein have almost unlimited options at their disposal.
Flameprotect compact has already received the “Award for Innovation Architecture
+ Office” from the architecture magazines AIT and IntelligenteArchitektur
for the range and variety of surface finishes.
