Class A2 ACP and Aluminum lattice composite panel
Class A2 ACP refers to Aluminum Composite Panels that have a Class A2 fire performance classification. These panels consist of two aluminum sheets that are sandwiching a core material, typically made of polyethylene or fire-retardant mineral-filled core.
On the other hand, Aluminum lattice composite panels, also known as open-cell aluminum panels, are a type of ACP panel that have a unique, lattice-like structure instead of a solid core. This structure allows for improved airflow and improved sound insulation compared to traditional solid-core ACP panels.
Just like Class A2 ACP panels, Aluminum lattice composite panels can also have a Class A2 fire performance classification. This means that they have limited contribution to fire and low levels of smoke emission, in accordance with fire performance requirements set by building and fire safety codes.
It’s important to consult with a building and fire safety expert to determine the best type of ACP panel for a particular project, taking into consideration both fire performance requirements and other factors such as thermal insulation, sound insulation, and design aesthetics.
