What is it?
Royal Crest vinyl cladding is formed from extruded polyvinyl chloride homopolymer resin, which endows it with outstanding resistance to stones, balls, ladders etc.
Does it insulate?
Royal Crest vinyl bestows better insulation qualities than aluminium, making it cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Will it burn?
Royal Crest vinyl’s self-extinguishing and can’t support flame on its own ; thus it can only be damaged by a continuous flame source. In such an instance, simply shrinks to nothing, and doesn’t drip like conventional plastics. Red cedar self ignites at 500°F(260°C).Vinyl only ignites at 810°F (432°C).
Is it weatherproof?
Royal Crest vinyl withstands temperatures of plus to 55°C and as low as minus 30°C, and can take the force of winds up to 240 k.p.h.
Is it colourfast?
The colours in Royal Crest vinyl are saturated right through the product, ensuring that they will still be distinctive in 50 years time.
Does it meet today’s norms and standards?
American Society Materials Testing Institution, an internationally recognised standards body.
Recognised by the British Standards Institute. Standard Number ASTM D3679
Fire Test: Ignition temperature 436 degrees Fahrenheit or 224 degrees Centigrade, removal of flame source causes the material to self-extinguish, prior to ignition it deforms and ‘droops’
Low Temperature Test: -37 degrees Centigrade
Wind Speed: Tested to 130 mph (Hurricane)
Is it as noisy as plastic cladding?
Because Royal Crest vinyl has superior flexibility, and because of its method of installation, it doesn’t crack and creak with changing temperatures, like conventional plastic systems, and it doesn’t warp or bend.
