SIDERISE ‘Nexus Fusion’ provides specifiers with a high strength, robust insulation core that offers an unequalled combination of fire, thermal and acoustic performance.

Designed for use with glass spandrel panels in curtain walling and bespoke glazing systems, SIDERISE ‘Nexus Fusion’ provides specifiers with a high strength, robust insulation core that offers an unequalled combination of fire, thermal and acoustic performance.

SIDERISE Nexus Fusion (previously Lamatherm Nexus NXS) spandrel insulation is a robust European Fireclass A1 lamella board that meets the performance requirements of curtain walling systems replacing the use of compressible or combustible insulating materials. Launched today at FIREX 2018, The product will be featured on stand A196 at Firex International from 19th to 21st June at Excel in London.

Through precision manufacturing and tight tolerances, Nexus Fusion comprises high strength stonewall lamella with a uniform vertical fibre structure – this unique feature means that Nexus Fusion boards can be fitted avoiding the risk of slippage due to building movement, and without gaps or slumping of the insulation.    

Being inherently ‘non-combustible’, mechanically strong and dimensionally stable, SIDERISE Nexus Fusion spandrel insulation provides the best possible consideration for maintaining the systems fire integrity at the junction between the building structure and the curtain wall. However, the actual fire resistance achieved will remain primarily dependent on the curtain wall or frame specification.

Tested as part of a curtain wall assembly to EN1364-3 in Fire Rated Façades for 30 minutes without failure, Fusion boards tested in their end use application have been rated as European Fireclass A1. Available in a range of standard thicknesses between 20mm and 200mm, the product is foil faced on one side with an open filament net on the other side to facilitate bonding to glass. This negates the need for pins and washers, simplifying installation and reducing costs.

William McDowell Business Development and Product Manager of SIDERISE said:  “Nexus Fusion will ensure the integrity of the interface between the insulation and the firestop is not compromised and effective compartmentation is maintained. Our firesafe solution eliminates the costly option of creating a bespoke metal tray lining system.”

SIDERISE Nexus products use a unique patented process to produce a true structurall lamella board with optimal fire, thermal and acoustic performance. Specifiers and building owners can then be certain these products will continue to perform after insulation, offering the best environmental conditions for those living and working in buildings, and to reliably protect in the event of fire.

It provides specifiers of architectural panels and doors with a firesafe and high strength insulation core that offers fire safety, rigidity, flatness and exceptional structural performance.

With the increasing demand for firesafe materials across the construction industry, SIDERISE has launched Nexus Core. It provides specifiers of architectural panels and doors with a firesafe and high strength insulation core that offers fire safety, rigidity, flatness and exceptional structural performance.

A truly firesafe structural insulation solution, SIDERISE Nexus Core (previously Lamatherm Nexus NXR) lamella boards meet the performance requirements of modern industrial and commercial buildings being used in curtain walling systems, doors and volumetric building elements. Launched today at FIREX 2018, Nexus CORE provides a cost-effective, pre-finished rigid core to be used wherever thermal, fire or acoustic insulation is required within a bonded composite panel. The product will be featured on stand A196 at Firex International from 19th to 21st June at Excel in London.

Nexus Core comprises high strength stonewool lamella with a uniform fibre structure.  Precision manufacturing and tight tolerances means that manufacturers can use thinner facing materials that can now remain robust and aesthetically pleasing. 

As part of the patented Nexus process, the lamella undergoes lateral compression which eliminates all gaps within and between the lamella, thereby removing any weak points and creating a ‘true’ lamella board. This increases structural performance and produces a more homogenous core. The Nexus Core lamella boards are supplied with an open filament net facing to both sides to allow for structural bonding and also optimal handle-ability.

William McDowell Business Development and Product Manager of SIDERISE said :  “Whilst facades can be used to create a stunning architectural statement, it is essential these buildings are constructed to perform efficiently and safely. Nexus Core is made from European Fireclass A1 stonewool enabling manufacturers to produce firesafe composite structures.”

SIDERISE Nexus products use a unique patented process to produce a true structurally lamella board with optimal and tested fire, thermal and acoustic performance. Specifiers and building owners can then be certain these products will continue to perform after insulation, offering the best environmental conditions for those living and working in buildings, and to reliably protect in the event of fire.

SilentWave™ RCD delivers exceptional noise reduction for recreational craft with an industry-setting 4x improvement in the cabin environment for passengers and crew, making it one of the most significant developments of its kind in recent years.

In the first major innovation of its kind in 30 years, SIDERISE has launched SilentWave™ RCD - a ground-breaking acoustic treatment for marine engine rooms. SilentWave™ RCD delivers exceptional noise reduction for recreational craft with an industry-setting 4x improvement in the cabin environment for passengers and crew, making it one of the most significant developments of its kind in recent years.

All yacht builders want to do is maximise space, minimise weight and deliver maximum performance, including quiet operation, for their clients. Fully compliant with the Recreational Craft Directive, SIDERISE SilentWave™ RCD is the optimum sound reduction solution for recreational craft less than 34 metres. With an unmatched 4x reduction (6dB) in cabin sound pressure level, this lightweight composite treatment delivers comfort, security and protection to all passengers and crew.

Committed to continued research and development, SIDERISE went back to the drawing board to develop a new composite acoustic product that offers significantly improved absorption performance and would be aesthetically pleasing to this high-end marine market.  

Graham Laws, Business Development Officer for SIDERISE said: “Modern motor yachts are built for performance, but power does come with a price. As engine performance increases so do sound levels, which can have a negative impact for crew and passengers on-board. Our new composite acoustic product can deliver the ultimate balance between acoustic performance, weight and cost.”

Easy to install, SIDERISE SilentWave™ RCD is moisture-resistant, non-flammable and features a high aesthetic finish.  Tested for fire performance in accordance with ISO 4589-3 (Oxygen index >21% @elevated temperature), the composite prevents ingress of fuel and oil.

SIDERISE sets out to deliver engineered performance, keeping both large voids and mass to a minimum. The company’s innovative acoustic laminates can achieve previously unseen levels of acoustic attenuation at low frequency.

SIDERISE acoustic products have been developed over a number of years and third-party tested to certify their performance. SIDERISE has been providing noise control solutions throughout Europe within the industries of power generation, wind turbines, automotive, HVAC, rail and marine. SIDERISE technical experts can tailor the material performance directly to the controlling frequencies of your application.
