Technical Overview

General Properties of Burton Panels

Technical Data

All Burton panels are:

  • insulated
  • cyclone tested
  • lightweight
  • strong
  • easily mounted
  • demountable
  • vermin proof
  • hygienic

Australian Standard
The expanded polystyrene core (EPS) of Burton panels possesses the properties designated under Australian Standard 1366, Part 3-1992. EPS contains no fluorocarbon.

Panel Listings
0.6mm CRP Colorbond® prepainted steel most commonly used (Surfmist, 25% gloss). Alternative colours and lining material options are available. Surfmist finish aluminium trims standard.

Panel Adhesive
Panel linings are bonded to EPS core with synthetic thermo-setting polyurethane adhesive, creating a permanently stable panel under a wide range of conditions and temperatures. They thereby avoid the adverse and deforming tendencies often synonymous with thermo plastic adhesives.

Panel Dimensions
Width: 1200mm standard
Length: Manufactured to customer’s requirements and only limited by transport constraints
Thickness: As per general properties table

Panel Assembly
Prefabricated panels are assembled and sealed to form an effective vapour barrier. No framework or stud system is used in this construction system. The high strength to weight ratio of Burton panel generally allows wall construction without the need for load bearing foundations. A steel framed roof is normally required where panels are used for ceiling/roof construction in large buildings.

Elevated Surface Temperature
Maximum continuous surface temperature is 76.7°C, although Burton panel can be exposed to higher temperatures for short periods without affecting its properties.

Environmental Values

The expanded polystyrene core (EPS) of Burton panels possesses the properties designated under Australian Standard 1366, Part 3-1992, and possesses no fluorocarbon.

According to the EPS Industry Alliance, “EPS insulation can return up to 200 times the amount of energy required to produce it, and reduce emissions by up to 100 times the volume produced during the manufacturing process.”

Thus, by using EPS technology, we are committed to upholding our goal of superior construction quality, while helping reducing global warming by making a restorative contribution.
