Classified as ‘non-combustible’ and not subject to any restriction on building height or proximity to boundary when used on a non-combustible substrate and with non-combustible components (as per section 7.2 of the BBA certificate).

Air and water penetration

Stofix can minimise water penetration and the risk of damage to the inner wall (BBA section 8).

Strength and stability

As part of the design criteria, all system layouts are designed and supported by an engineers report to assess the requirements and structural loadings. Stofix will be designed to resist all wind actions normally encountered in the UK. (BBA section 6).
