RCM, Roofing and Cladding Materials Ltd, a specialist in complete through wall solutions, are delighted to be the first, and currently only stockist of A2 Rockpanel (FS-Xtra) in the UK.
RCM are now able to offer Rockpanel (FS-Xtra) in a selection of colours directly from stock.
Made from compressed mineral wool, originating from basalt, Rockpanel has the strength and durability of stone, yet the workability of wood.
The addition of this ‘stone-based’ cladding further enhances RCM’s already extensive facades offering. Recent supplied projects by RCM have included the University of West England in Bristol, where over 1,000m² of Rockpanel Metallics were supplied to newly built high-quality student accommodation on the Frenchay campus.
Rockpanel is suitable for use as exterior cladding, applications along the roofline and for building detailing. It has the fire rating A2, which is ideally suited for applications where high levels of fire performance are desirable or mandatory.
The number of colours and finishes to choose from is huge and RCM are now able to deliver four of the most popular colours (Signal Grey, Anthracite Grey, Dusty Grey and Pure White) directly from its Staffordshire warehouses. It brings with it a great benefit to RCM’s customers by shortening lead times for these stock items, thus improving the service RCM are able to offer.
As well as choosing one of these stock colours, RCM are also able to supply the full 50 standard colours with an additional 100 special colours, including a further 10 Rockpanel ranges, which include Woods, Metallics, Stones, Uni, Ply, Natural, Chameleon, Brilliant, Lines and Premium.
“It is a pleasure to announce RCM as a stockist of Rockpanel. Being able to stock four of the most popular colours means that we will be able to supply our customers much faster with the facades. This will reduce wasted time and allows RCM to become more efficient in the long run. Many great UK based projects have used Rockpanel in the past, endorsing the quality and sustainability of this fire safe exterior cladding from Rockpanel., not to mention the huge choice of colour finishes.” (Ian Quinton, RCM Managing Director)
