  2. Knauf Exterior Wall with AQUAPANEL® Technology

What fire resistances can I achieve with the Knauf Exterior Wall systems?

A configuration of components to reach a specific fire resistance is possible.

With the different façade systems using AQUAPANEL® Technology, it is possible to achieve fire resistances from 45 to 90 minutes, depending on their components and configuration.

For simple Single stud system, it is EI 45 Minutes (see your local norm).

For double stud system with steel and wood, it is EI 90 Minutes (see your local norm).

The AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor is Fire Rated A1 (non-combustible). 

If you require a particular fire resistance for your project, please contact the AQUAPANEL® Central Engineering to determine the best solution for your project here.
