Rockpanel manufactures board material for exterior facades, roof edge finishing and other detailing which is made from the volcanic rock basalt. Because of its core material, Rockpanel boards can withstand high temperatures and are classified as limited combustible: European fire class A2-s1,d0.


With Rockpanel boards you get a non-combustible façade cladding without having to give up on your design requirements. All the designs are available both as standard and as customized options to match an exact colour or design.
