The four types of Vandalite available are variously designed
to meet the many different 'fire ratings' required by the Building Regulations,
1976.These include the following British Standards: External: SAA (BS476 Part
III) Class II: (BS476 Part V11) Class I: (BS476) Part V11) '0' Rating: (Building
Regulations 1976) Fire Grades are designed and quoted for in good faith and with
the experience of our resin suppliers and ourselves in manufacturing sheet to
meet these standards. In all cases the resins used are stated by manufacturers
to be the appropriate class and tested to that standard in a representative range
of laminates. Vandalite do not warrant that any laminate will confirm to specific
parts of BS476 or any other fire test.
Possibly the ultimate reinforced glazing material for use in fire doors and similar
applications.This product has been independently tested and found to achieve over
two hours' Integrity in BS476 part 22: 1987, indicative tests. During such tests
the material was subject to temperatures of up to 1030°C on the furnace side
and 300°C on the unexposed side.
All Vandalite types are available with 'cracked ice' embossed surface finish (single
or both sides), opaque or translucent and can be supplied coloured in any BS4800
specification tint. Depth of colour will vary according to thickness. As tinted
Vandalite is manufactured against specific orders a sample of colour should be
supplied for matching.The colours shown here are a selection and as close as the
printing process will allow.
Vandalite types meet the impact resistance requirements of BS 5544:1978.
Accelerated weathering tests have been performed on
all Vandalite types to correspond with 8 years of natural weathering. Negligible
degradation occurs over this period.

lower than glass. Heat losses can therefore be expected to be very much lower
with single glazed panels.
