Chameleon – a facade for all seasons
Rockpanel is made from a core of naturally occurring and sustainable volcanic basalt rock mixed with an organic binder to create a stone wool, which embodies superior durability and fire resilience, making the resilient low maintenance facades UV resistant and insensitive to moisture and temperature changes, ensuring they look great throughout their life of 50 years or more.
Changes in natural light have the effect of altering the surface colour of this unique material, enabling Rockpanel Chameleon to transform any facade into an inspiring, ever-transforming canvas. The phenomenon is made possible by a unique crystal effect layer. At Merstham the colour changes from luminescent green through to a bronzy brown. Many other colour variations are also available within the range.
Ann Bone, Area Sales Manager at Rockpanel: “Rockpanel Chameleon allows specifiers the freedom to explore new possibilities safe in the knowledge the results will satisfy the most rigorous fire safety standards, making it an extremely popular choice for both new build, renovation or retrofit across all sectors and for high-rise structures. The breadth of surface finishes offered by Rockpanel is hugely impressive. In addition to Chameleon, it encompasses Natural Woods, Metals, Stones, and the Colours collection. The surface can even be routed to create bespoke patterns, illustration or even a company logo.”
The panels are lightweight and in addition to being supplied to exact dimensions, can be easily cut on site without the need to seal edges – making installation quicker, saving time and money. They can also be treated with specialist ProtectPlus coating to further safeguard them from the elements and vandalism. At Merstham, breathable and waterproof ROCKWOOL RAINSCREEN Duo Slab insulation was used. This BBA approved insulation is made from the same fire-safe stone wool used in the manufacture of Rockpanel cladding and adds thermal comfort while reducing the transfer or external airborne noise.
