A fully tested non combustible solution for all buildings.

FusionX was developed using our extensive industry knowledge and expertise, in response to changes in Building Regulations and can be used for buildings up to 10* storeys. *Certified up to 10 storeys and can form part of a structure up to 14 storeys.

Made up of a combination of fire-tested component parts to create a fully non- combustible wall, FusionX has been approved by the NHBC, is registered under NHBC Accepts and has been accepted for LABC Warranty.

COMMERCIAL PERFORMANCE:

FusionX provides builders and investors with a cost-effective speed of build solution. Quality is assured in our factory where our products are precision manufactured for precise installation, which speeds up the construction and increases the productivity on site. FusionX is durable and offers a dimensionally stable material with a better strength to weight ratio than concrete.

Easy to install on site, FusionX can be manufactured to suit various layout options.

FusionX provides a level of reliability when compared to other construction materials as steel does not shrink, it will not rot, warp, crack or creep, it will not expand or contract with moisture content and is one of the most sustainable construction materials available.

15 reasons why Fusion products offer peace of mind

FIRE PERFORMANCE:

We’ve invested heavily in the independent testing of FusionX. To date, we have suites of base test data covering standard Fusion components for each protection period of 60, 90 and 120 minutes, and are continually reviewing test data to provide the most cost-effective solutions for our clients.

THERMAL PERFORMANCE:

With a standard build-up* of insulation between the studs and 100mm mineral wool slab outside the frame, a U-value of 0.20W/m2K can be achieved with a masonry outer skin. Lower values can be achieved by altering the specification of build-up. Lightweight cladding performance is subject to project defined build-up.
