Save construction time
A spandrel panel is a factory produced prefabricated panel, manufactured off site thus saving on site construction time.
Traditional brick and block gable ends and party walls are open to the elements during construction and curing and cannot be erected during certain weather conditions. Additionally potential problems can be caused by high wind conditions.
There is also the danger that they will be insufficiently cured before construction is continued which can be a major health & safety risk causing site accidents.

What are spandrel panels for?
Spandrel panels are used in roof construction to separate spaces under the roof, or to be used as the gable end of a roof. They are used as a quicker, simpler solution to replace traditional blockwork walls in the roof.
What are gable panels?
Gable wall spandrel panels are an off-site manufactured product, put together in quality-assured factory conditions before being delivered direct to site. They provide an alternative to the inner leaf of an exterior masonry wall at the gable end of a building and must be designed to comply with robust structural and thermal requirements and in some circumstances fire resistance performance standards too.
What are party wall spandrels?
Party wall spandrel panels are an off-site manufactured product, put together in quality-assured factory conditions before being delivered direct to site. They provide an alternative to a masonry wall in the cold roof space between adjoining properties. They must be designed to provide fire resistance and acoustic insulation between the properties.
