Fire Show!

Another impressive fire test for clients from New Zealand. Our Durra Panels have a one hour fire rating, and are a unique, naturally fire resistant product that releases no dangerous toxic chemicals, no flaming droplets combined with a low smoke density index. The carbonising action of the straw core when exposed to flame retards fire penetration of the panel.

The responsibility of ensuring environmentally sustainable design rests with us all. Every inch of Durra Panel is 100% natural and recyclable. The Durra manufacturing process combines heat and pressure to form a solid panel core. No chemical binders are needed as a natural polymer in the straw fibre is released during this process and acts as a binding agent. As a result, Durra generates no toxic waste. Durra Panel is an innovative building material that meets the needs for today’s ‘green’ construction industry.
