PIRMAX HR Panel Wall Applications

Technical Detail & Applications

PIRMAX HR Insulation Panel has been evaluated and considered to comply with the requirements of the NCC/BCA in the following applications: 

Within the internal part of the wall cavity for internal walls;

or Within the internal part of the wall cavity for external walls;

or Within the external panel wall stud frame (excluding curtain wall application).

Limitation  

  • PIRMAX HR Insulation Panel can be used on internal walls concealed within the wall linings by at least 10mm standard grade plasterboard or equivalent.
  • PIRMAX HR Insulation Panel can be used on the internal side of the external wall either directly fixed or within the cavity provided it is shielded from the external part of the wall by fire rated material suitable stopped achieving an FRL of at least -/30/30 and shielded from the interior of a building by at least 10mm standard grade plasterboard or equivalent.

National Construction Code – Vol 1 2016 Amdt 1   

  • Clause A0.2 (b) complying with the Deemed-to-Satisfy Solution.
  • Clause A2.2 sub-clause (a)(v) as evidence to support that the PIRMAX HR Insulation.

  • Panel meets the nominated Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions under an Engineering Certificate.

  • Clause A2.2 sub-clause (a)(vii) as evidence to support that the PIRMAX HR Insulation Panel meets the nominated Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions under an Engineering Certificate. 

Internal Wall Cavity

  • Located within an internal wall cavity either directly to the wall or friction fitted within studwork.
  • Performance Requirement CP2 and CP4.

  • Clause C1.10.

  • Sub-clause (a)(ix) Other materials including insulation materials that comply with Within the internal part of the wall cavity for internal walls; or Within the internal part of the wall cavity for external walls; or Within the external panel wall stud frame (excluding curtain wall application). Specification C1.10 Clause 7 and used as an internal lining of external walls.  

External Wall – Internal Side | Within Cavity 

Located within the internal side of an external wall or within the external wall cavity either directly to the wall or friction fitted within studwork. 

Use of the PIRMAX HR Insulation Panel in a curtain wall application on the external part of the wall has not been tested or evaluated and is excluded from this report. 

  • Performance Requirement CP2 and CP8
  • Installed within the wall cavity and shielded from the external part of the building by a fire rated material that achieves FRL of at least -/30/30. The material is to be sealed with the fire rated material.

  • The area above an opening for a height of at least 900mm is to achieve an FRL of at least -/60/60 to achieve a compliant spandrel.
  • The above provision of a spandrel in conjunction with the materials testing to AS 5113:2016 achieves an EW classification.
