 AluMag is a Non-combustible aluminum composite panel (ACP)  for exterior and interior wall cladding.  Its core is made from the same minerals used in fire extinguishers suitable for the exposed face in a 2 hour fire separation test with 0 flame spread and very low smoke produced.  AluMag panels are continuously made from roll stock 1.2 and 1.5 meter wide x up to 6 meters or longer, 6 mm thin or less (48 & 60 inch x 20 ft x 1/4 in) and are offered in a huge array of colors and appearances,  they are easy to work and install using standard tools.

Vacuum Insulated Panels Canada
Panasonic Vacuum Insolation Panels

Vacuum Insulation Panels made by Panasonic  These long lasting, highly efficient and easy to install insulation panels are the most efficient to protect buildings and occupants against the transmission of thermal and sound energy.  Panasonic VIPs provide R63 per inch and are a complete water (vapor)  and air barrier.  Panasonic VIPs are best installed as part of the building envelope as part of the AluMag and MagO Cladding Systems.

Mago building supplies
MagO Panels

MagO magnesium oxide ceramic cement panels are a superior alternative to gypsum and fiber cement products for interior and exterior applications.  MagO Panels can also be used as non-combustible structural sheathing for floors, walls and roofs.  Made literally from minerals required for the health of people, plants and animals these products have low embedded energy and sequester CO2 making them one of the most sustainable materials that are highly resistant to damage from fire, water, insects, mold, impact damage and sound transmission.  MagO panels are easily worked using common tools and do not include silicates or other toxins making them very safe to work with.
