AlphaPanel® has been designed and tested to meet all requirements of the National Construction Code and the relevant Australian Standards. AlphaPanel® is a non-combustible, high performing, lightweight, high strength, glass fibre reinforced precast concrete panel that is manufactured in New South Wales, Australia, by XCEM Pty Limited. XCEM's AlphaPanel is wholly Australian Made & Owned; XCEM is ISO 9001 accredited.
XCEM's AlphaPanel® is both the structural element and the finished element in AlphaPanel® wall systems, thereby reducing the requirement for stud work, plasterboard and completely eliminating the requirement for render externally.
The erected AlphaPanel® wall is strong, durable, impact resistant and provides a solid concrete wall feel. The finished AlphaPanel® wall provides a smooth and seamless concrete wall. AlphaPanel® can be used as external and internal walls in all building types, including:
External façades for high-rise buildings
Internal walls for high-rise buildings
External walls for detached residential houses and low-rise multi-residential buildings
Low-rise intertenancy and boundary walls
Basement walls in multi-storey buildings
External & Internal walls in light industrial construction
High Performance at the Right Price
AlphaPanel® is solid, high-strength glass fibre reinforced concrete, yet is more affordable than inferior products such as AAC panels, fibre cement sheets, and brick. AlphaPanel® is a true pre-cast concrete substitute at approximately 50% of the finished wall cost.
Crystalline Silica Free
AlphaPanel® contains no crystalline silica, eliminating risk of development of silicosis through inhalation of dust.
Pre-Finished Panel Surfaces - No Rendering Required
AlphaPanel® is pre-finished and is paint ready with no rendering required.
Increased NSA (Net Saleable Area) in Apartments
AlphaPanel® wall systems are the slimmest footprint intertenancy and corridor systems available in the market. Substitution of AAC or plasterboard wall systems with AlphaPanel® creates on average an additional 1.5 square meters per apartment in Net Saleable Area (NSA), providing significant value for all stakeholders.
AlphaPanel® has a smooth off-form concrete finish (ready for paint), eliminating the requirement for plasterboard lining and render, dramatically increasing speed of construction, and reducing construction costs.
AlphaPanel® is lightweight, impact resistant, high strength concrete that is resistant to damage during and after construction. This removes patching requirements from impact from trolleys or tools and reduces ongoing maintenance costs.
AlphaPanel® is CodeMark Certified and fully compliant with all applicable NCC requirements and the relevant Australian Standards.
Australian Made and Owned
AlphaPanel® is 100% Australian Made & Owned. AlphaPanel® is manufactured at XCEM's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.
Fast and Simple Cutting and Penetrations
No dust rooms are required for cutting of AlphaPanel when wet-cut using a diamond-tipped masonry saw with edges finished with a diamond-tipped reciprocating saw. Penetrations are quick and simple to cut in AlphaPanel.
