InterDam – the specialist supplier of blast- and fire-resistant doors and walls – introduces an innovative new application for firewalls.

For decades, the norm for architectural fire-resistant doors and walls has been thick, heavy-welded A60 wall solutions. After intensive research and testing, InterDam is about to change that with the introduction of its new G21 FirePanel. This comprehensive system makes use of the standard materials for fire-resistant solutions, but in a different, more optimized “sandwiched” composition with a stainless-steel 316 external skin. The G21 FirePanel is much more cost-effective due to this, as well as to the modular nature of the system, which enables users to effectively adapt and tailor it to their specific needs.  

The G21 FirePanel effectively introduces the “do-it-yourself” concept to the firewall market. Professional welders are only necessary for the substructure construction. For the panels, which have a certified free span of over 13 feet, all you need is a drill and a pop riveter. Installation can take place with amazing speed. A three-man crew can install 2,000 square feet of external wall in one day!  

The InterDam range of G21 products has been extensively tested and certified by Lloyds, DNV and other international leading institutes, and the panels come with a 20-year guarantee. And this guarantee of quality and safety is available at a price point that is lower than the bolted solutions that have been used in the market for so long – something that will be very welcome to industries that feel increasing pressure to work as cost-effectively as possible. 

Berend Groeneveld, InterDam MD: “Over the last decade, we have seen very few changes in the applications of bolted A60 fire-resistant wall systems. It’s not easy for the industry to make the change from an old, well-established concept to a new and different comprehensive system. You learn and accept a certain way of doing things, especially when the benefits of alternative methods are not clear. That’s where we can make the difference now with the G21 system. It truly is a firewall system for the 21st century.”

InterDam Wall tested to realistic Blast- and fire scenario

InterDam as recently developed and successfully tested a lightweight wall system that complies with the requirements from such a blast/fire scenario. The InterDam test wall has been subjected to a severe blast impact and subsequently that same wall panel was put to an hydrocarbon test. Our wall withstood this test for more than 180 minute
