Sandwich Panel related fires have resulted in major property damage and business interruption losses over the years.

 

What are Sandwich Panels?

Sandwich Panels or Composite Panels are structures made up of three layers: a low-density core and a thin metal or plastic skin-layer bonded to each side. Over the years, they have been used extensively in external wall and roof construction of a wide variety of buildings, including cold storage, warehousing, hotels, exhibition halls, clean room environments and the food industry.
