You need to protect your beautiful home from disasters, including fire. One way of doing it is to use an external wall cladding that acts as a barrier against the fire. Vinyl cladding’s material has excellent performance characteristic in fire situations that make it well suited for use in places with high fire danger.
- All organic material ignites, but the longer it takes to do so, the safer it is. PVC, the material that vinyl cladding is made of, does not ignite until it reaches a temperature of 378° and the self-ignition point is 454°. This is significantly higher than the ignition point of timber.
- Vinyl cladding does not sustain combustion – this means that if it were to catch fire, it will self-extinguish and will not continue to burn once the fire source is removed.
- PVC also has a low radiant panel index which means that it releases less heat when it burns and retards the spread of flames.
