This system is used when you only need up to four stories and low cost budgets. The advantages are many, including; Fire retardant, insect resistant, earthquake resistant, and withstands high wind velocities.
Lite-Core Panels are a strong, affordable and environmentally responsible solution. Lite-Core panels have been utilized successfully worldwide for more than 40 years. A Lite-Core building is constructed by assembling pre-manufactured panels which are heavily insulated, removing the need for additional insulation. The panels are very strong, and can be used for floors and roofs as well as external and internal walls, without the need for a traditional support frame. Our personnel have experience in the development and manufacturing of the composite panels. Manufacturing equipment at our factory has ensured a consistently high quality of manufacture, fast response and high volume production.
Lite-Core systems are used, among others, in the construction of houses, flats, hotels and leisure facilities, schools and light industrial units. The following finishes are easily applied: walls; cladding, polymer and cement renders, natural stone, brick, timber and metal cladding. Roofs; lightweight and traditional systems can be used.
Expanded polystyrene core is nontoxic and inert. Expanded polystyrene provides the lightweight and the high heat-insulation values. Lite-Core systems are engineered panels that are used as walls and roofs on all types of building. They may be used to span openings with support from panels on each side. Panels are generally connected using steel joints. Lite-Core panels are fire resistant and can be further protected against fire by use of thermal barriers such as plasterboard to achieve higher fire ratings.
Fire safety is always an ongoing concern. Al-Faowry consistently reviews on-site safety protocols as well as continued training for its employees to enhance work flow and meet our goal of zero tolerance for accidents. Al-Faowry is not only committed to overall safety of its employees, but also its customers — especially when it comes to Fire Safety. This is why Al-Faowry’s Lite-Core products have a Class I fire rating—the best available for combustible materials. Because the foam core of a Lite-Core panel is solid, there are no cavities or voids in the walls or roof to support a “chimney effect” that can occur during a fire in open-cavity construction.
