New Ferrari Land FRP Cladding Meets Euroclass Building Material Fire Specification Using Crestapol 1212

September 25 2017

Ferrari Land theme park in Spain has two key landmarks, namely the spectacular ‘Ferrari Experience’ building with its instantly recognizable classic Ferrari red colored exterior and car bonnet shaped entrance, and ‘Red Force’ which is now Europe’s tallest and fastest rollercoaster at over 112 meters tall, accelerating to 112mph in a breathtaking five seconds; riders experience up to 1.35 G-force and virtually the same conditions felt by a Formula 1 racing driver. Both constructions were fabricated using a combination of painted flat aluminum panels and more complex, curved FRP composite wall cladding and roofing sections. Altogether, the FRP composite parts supplied covered approximately 1.500 sq. m., installed on the exterior of the Ferrari Experience building and various sections of the Red Force rollercoaster ride. A total of 800 individual FRP parts ranging in sizes from 0.5 to 5.0 m2, were hand layup molded by specialist architectural façades and parts fabricator Look Composites.

In order to meet the stringent EN 13501-1 ‘Euroclass’ B,s2,d0 fire performance rating stipulated, all of the FRP composite parts needed were custom molded by Look Composites using Crestapol 1212 resin with Alumina trihydrate (ATH) fire retardant filler.
