SKAMOTEC 225 building boards are non-combustible and can resist temperatures up to 1000 degrees Celcius. The material has been tested in accordance with AS NZS 5601.1, AS1530.3, AS2918 and ASTM C182, meeting the requirements for the BCA for Gas and Wood heater installations.

Ease of installment

The light-weight nature of the SKAMOTEC 225 boards makes the product easy to handle and install. SKAMOTEC 225 is around 50% lighter than other non-combustible boards on the market today. Building fireplace enclosures with SKAMOTEC 225 is equally easy for you as an installer, using common wood working tools and fasteners to cut, shape and combine the material as you desire, while leaving very little excess material. SKAMOTEC 225 allows you to greatly reduce your construction time for the individual fireplace enclosure and maximize your business.

One building product – multiple design solutions

Due to the strength of SKAMOTEC 225, installers are able to apply various finishing materials, e.g. stone and tile. Multiple types of fireplace enclosures can be built using the product.

In fact, most enclosures can be built using only SKAMOTEC 225, replacing the need for light-frame construction and wall covering. This eliminates a complete stage in the construction process, combining multiple building materials into one.

SKAMOTEC 225 is used for both traditional and contemporary fireplace installations.

Product characteristics

SKAMOTEC 225 is a light weight material providing several advantages – excellent R-value, high mechanical strength, low thermal conductivity and maximum service temperatures of 1000o C.
The exceptional heat resistance makes the SKAMOTEC 225 able to withstand continuous heat cycles to full service temperature limit and the low thermal conductivity provides maximum insulation throughout the temperature range – making it the ideal product when building custom fireplace enclosures.
