    • Spread of Flame – Class 1 (BS 476, Part 7)
    • Fire Propagation – Class 0 (BS 476, Part 6)
    • European Norms Classification
      • ✓ A1 – Non Combustible
      • ✓ s1 – No Smoke
      • ✓ d0 – No flaming droplets
    • When installed on fire rated T grid suspension system, the ceiling system has potential to provide more than 2hrs structural protection against fire (Steel Beams)
    • Most recommended ceiling system in High Circulation areas

  • Bio-Safe

    Anti-microbial

    • Aerolite tiles are inherently Antibacterial/Antifungal
    • BioSafe tiles have special treatment on the surface of the tile that acts against fungus and bacteria
    • Tested against E-Coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Aspergillus niger (Mold), Candida Albicans (Yeast)

    Cleanability

    • Aerolite tiles are cleanable, can be cleaned with dampened cloth after dusting the tiles

    Air Quality

    • Aerolite ceilings emit zero VOC(No formaldehyde)

    Humidity

    • Humidity breeds fungus
    • Humidity resistant ceilings prevent growth of fungus
    • Aerolite manufactures only RH100 products
    • RH100 ceilings are excellent for hospital environment

  • Aqua Resist

    Aerolite Non Cementitious Calcium Silicate ceiling tiles doesn’t e their physical integrity even when exposed to water droplets

    • Needless to say. Aerolite are 100% RH resistant (Extremes of Humidity & Temperature)
    • Doesn't soften & sag in high humid environments
    • Doesn't demand an air conditioned space to perform well
    • Can be stored and installed in all weather conditions..!!
    • This enables easy & quick installation and early occupation & use of building
    • Can be safely used even in INDUSTRIAL , SEMI-EXPOSED locations and over STANDING WATER conditions (Over Indoor swimming pools)

    EN 13964 - Classes of Exposure

    Class Conditions
    A

    Building components generally exposed to varying ralative humidity up to 70% and varying temperature up to 25° C but without corrosive pollutants

    B Building components frequently exposed to varying humidity up to 90% and varying temperature up to 30° C but without corrosive pollutants
    C Building components exposed to an atomsphere with a level of humidity higher than 90% & accompanished by risk of condensation
    D More severe than the above

    COLLAPSED

  • Gradient

    Aerolite Non Cementitious Calcium Silicate ceiling tiles has outstanding thermal insulation properties which are superior to that of any other ceiling material

    • Very low thermal conductivity of ≤ 0.05 W/m°K
    • Doesn't warp under major temperature GRADIENT above the ceiling (plenum) and below
    • Hence, no limitations for use in Industrial applications (Under metal roof truss structures)
    • Helps to maintain room comfort at all times and saves heating and cooling expenses
  • Is Aerolite just an other Cal-Si board ??

    Calcium Silicate boards that are available in the market are traditionally designed and manufactured predominantly for wall partition application. They are very heavy (10mm thick board > 10kgs/Sqm) and are not safe for suspended ceiling application.

    • Pure Calcium Silicate Binder (No added Cement) formed by reacting Lime & Silica under steam pressure, this is similar to Refractory Heat Insulating Material that has excellent heat Insulation properties (Very low thermal conductivity of ≤ 0.05 W/m°K) Hence our tiles doesn't easily crack when exposed to fire unlike other calcium silicate boards..
    • 33% more efficient in saving HVAC energy costs in comparison to regular Cal-Si boards
    • Low density (Avg Density of 350 Kgs/m 3 ) – Light Weight Ceiling tiles
    • Integral Densified Tile edges – Offers excellent edge strength to the tiles, enabling frequent access to plenum with no damage to tile’s edges
    • Molded product with endless possibilities on molded design patterns
