In response to the Building Code changes affecting fire requirements for wall paneling within commercial buildings, Laminex NZ has created the new Melteca FR range for wall linings. This new range achieves the highest rating of Group 1-S when tested in accordance with ISO5660 and New Zealand Building Code Verification Method C/VM2 Appendix A, making it ideal for wall lining applications where fire resistance is important.
Melteca FR is manufactured by pressing a resin impregnated paper on to a specialty MDF distinguishable by the distinct pink core. It has all the benefits of hardwearing low pressure melamine (LPM) with the addition of fire resistance.
offices, hospitals, and retail spaces across the country, Melteca is a versatile, pre-decorated panel with a varied design-leading colour palette, a durable melamine surface on both sides, and is suitable for a range of applications from wall linings, cupboards, drawers, shelving, and furniture.
Manufactured in Laminex NZ’s LPM plant in Hamilton, Melteca FR is available in all Melteca colours with matching PVC or ABS edging. It comes in a naturale, pearl, stipple or Puregrain finish with select colours also available in high gloss.
