Phenolic High Performance Fire Panels are a composite sheet consisting mainly of cured phenolic resin and glassfibre.

It is one of the most cost effective cosmetic FIRE RESISTANT sheet materials available, producing relatively minute quantities of smoke and toxic fumes when exposed to fire – whilst retaining excellent physical properties at high temperature.

GRPH Phenolic Products (Phenclad)

Our Phenolic, High Performance Fire Panel, is a composite sheet product consisting mainly of cured phenolic resin and glassfibre. It is one of the most effective cosmetic FIRE RESISTANT sheet materials available, producing relatively minute quantities of smoke and toxic fumes when exposed to fire – whist still retaining excellent physical properties at high temperatures.

Phenclad is ideal for cladding, lining, partitioning, panelling and many other applications.  It is available in a wide range of colours and several surface finishes and may also be bonded to other materials to provide a wider range of applications.

Phenclad Coloured Panels

Phenclad is relatively easy to handle and install using a variety of complimentary fixing systems.  It is easily cleaned, has a graffiti resistant surface, is shatter-proof, has similar if not better physical attributes to other composites and is extremely cost effective.  Phenclad can be drilled, sawn, cut and machined using standard tools and equipment.

Offshore Installations and London UndergroundCompared to other composite products, Phenclad panels are unique in the respect they’ve been tested and certified for use in high risk installation and have been deemed ‘fit for purpose’ in applications such as Offshore Installations and Underground Railway Stations.

Phenol Formaldehyde (Phenolic) resins have been in commercial use for just under 100 years. Recent advances in resin/catalyst technology and continuing improvements in glass fibre production techniques combined with unique processing methods have made the manufacture of PHENCLAD possible. The product has undergone relevant tests by an internationally recognised Fire Research Centre. Copies of the results can be made available on request by interested parties. Details of the tests are as follows:
