Non-Combustible, Aluminum Wall Cladding Solution

Alfrex Plate is a 1/8” (3mm) pre-finished, 100% solid aluminum, fire-resistant wall cladding panel. It features a nominal standard thickness of 0.125” (3mm) by a maximum 62” width and is available in other popular thicknesses as well as custom widths.


It is pre-finished by coil coating lines specialized in handling heavier gauge solid aluminium coil, then tension leveled and cut to length per the requirements of each project by Alfrex.


Its 70% PVDF Kynar resin paint system ensures color consistency and outstanding UV protection, while it can be coated in coordination with Alfrex FR ACM and matching Flat Sheet in standard or custom colors.


The backside is primer coated to minimize oxidization and enable post-paint spray coating for small lot custom colors, where either air dry or baked finishes are desired.

Aluminum Plate wall panelling is popularly used by architects, designers and building contractors. These lightweight yet sturdy aluminium wall panels are widely used for exterior and interior wall cladding, signage, signage boards, column covers, canopies, and other architectural elements.

It projects a sleek and modern look, thereby giving rise to multiple creative design possibilities. The panels can be painted, coated, or printed with patterns, logos, or other custom designs.

And the best part, these fire resistant wall panels adhere to fire safety standards and building regulations across the US and may be used as either exterior or interior wall panels.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Pre-finished aluminum plate offers all the benefits of MCM with the added benefit of non-combustibility. Generally speaking, this would eliminate the need for multi-story fire testing such as NFPA 285 or CANULC S134 provided other material and conditions in the wall assembly are code compliant. Utlimately, a qualified engineer should make that determination.
  • Alfrex offers pre-finished solid Aluminum Plate, meaning it does not have to be fabricated, welded, then spray coated. Thus, it can be fabricated and installed utilizing virtually the same techniques and system assemblies as Aluminum composite paneling (ACP), also known as ACM and MCM.
  • Pre-finished aluminum plate has all the versatility of coil coating including a wide range of color and finish options, textures, wood grain patterns, and finishes imitating natural metals and corten steel.
  • Certain municipalities and architectural firms prefer non-combustible wall cladding materials, especially for high-rise buildings, yet still want the look of MCM.

As a non-combustible solid aluminum wall panel, it helps reduce the risk of fire spread as part of a complete wall assembly.

Compared to traditional aluminum plate, pre-finished plate can be much more economical – especially for medium to larger scale projects. Traditional plate is cut, bent, formed, welded, and then transported for spray coat application. Lead times are longer with additional labor and transportation costs coming into play. Pre-finished plate on the other hand passes through the same process as MCM, albeit with slight modifications.

Alfrex Plate in its standard 3mm thickness can be installed utilizing virtually the same systems used for 4mm thick MCM – many times with no modifications at all.

The selection of the installation method depends on your project requirements. We are happy to connect you with one of our qualified MCM / Plate fabricators today!
