M100 Fire Test
As part of our continuous and extensive R&D programme,
we have recently fire tested our M100 performance wall system; achieving phenomenal results for a 100mm, fully relocatable steel wall.
Our target performance was to achieve 60 minutes integrity & insulation to BS 476: Part 22, with a 20-30% overrun to allow for future development and assessment. The MIDDAS M100 solid wall actually achieved 95 minutes insulation and 120 minutes integrity.
This was achieved through smart engineering of the stud members and removable panels, allowing us to use only standard gypsum wall board backing on our pre-coated panels and mineral fibre cavity insulation, eliminating the costly and hazardous ceramic materials of our competitors lesser performing systems.
More updates to follow throughout the year with fire, acoustic and structural developments.
