Thermopal won award for its non-combustible decorative panel

Thermopal, a subsidiary of Pfleiderer AG, has once again won an award for its non-combustible decorative panel “flameprotect compact”. At the ZOW supply fair in Verona, engineered wood manufacturer Thermopal received the M Technology Award 2009. Jurors lauded the non-combustible decorative panel as an excellent supplier product.

Tower block fitted with more than 300 panels
Since it was launched on the market in January 2009, “flameprotect” has proved itself many times over in practical use – and is now also to be used in the Mobimo Tower in Zurich, Switzerland. Pfleiderer subsidiary Thermopal is supplying more than 300 panels of this A2-s1-classified (d0 according to German guidelines, and 6q3 according to Swiss guidelines) non-combustible material for the tower block project, which is to include a top hotel and luxury apartments. As this fire-resistant board can be coated in any of more than 300 designs, the project architectural office of Diener & Diener and the interior design studio Hannes Wettstein have almost unlimited options at their disposal.
Flameprotect compact has already received the “Award for Innovation Architecture + Office” from the architecture magazines AIT and IntelligenteArchitektur for the range and variety of surface finishes.
