Bondor® developed and patented the original “slip joint” (tongue in groove) system for joining insulated panel in Australia in 1986. Prior to this all EPS-FR panel was flat steel adhered to EPS-FR, the joint was a small aluminium H section, usually with a masonite spline “join a mould” panel. Bondor’s new approach greatly improved the panels performance including its performance in fire rating tests. It then took some years for the use of this design to move from Architectural panel into cold storage and food processing applications; and for competitors to break the registered design protection and copy the joint. More recently Bondor® have developed SolarSpan® and InsulWall®, the ingenious insulated residential building products, which when combined produce InsulLiving®, Australia’s next step towards zero energy housing. This product offers builders and designers a fully engineered, Building Code of Australia compliant building system, that is purpose designed for use in Australia, and is even acceptable in cyclonic regions.
