Aluminium is one of the most used metals in the world. In 2005 the world produced around 31.9 million tons of aluminium globally. That exceeds any other metal except iron. The use of aluminium for panel systems is no exception. At AFS International we build (sandwich) panels that can fit any project requirement. Aluminium is often used but we can also deliver panels in zinc, titanium, stainless steel and copper. Our sandwich panels are two panels of any metal that surround a honeycomb filling. This filling is often already made from aluminium. This honeycomb filling creates a light sandwich panel but gives stability and strength at the same time. Aluminium panels are completely made of aluminium, both the core and the outside sheets will be made of this light but strong metal.
Aluminium Panels Advantages
Aluminium and aluminium panels offer many advantages over other choices of metal. When designing the facade of your building you have to take these factors into consideration.
Aluminium is Lightweight
It is a very light metal with a weight that is a third of the weight of steel. Aluminium weights around 2,7g/cm3. When constructing the facade of your building aluminium will ease the process of installation due to the low weight.
Resistance to Corrosion
Aluminium is naturally protected from corrosion because it has a protective oxide coating. This is especially useful for the facade of buildings where you want to build to last for a longer period of time. Aluminium will last for several decades.
Because aluminium is ductile and has a low melting point. This ductility allows us to easily form aluminium panels to the needs of any architect.
Aluminium is Recyclable
Aluminium and our aluminium panels are completely recyclable with no loss of quality. It requires very little energy to recycle aluminium. Only around 5 percent of the energy that it takes to produce aluminium is needed to recycle it.
Aluminium Panels at AFS International
Aluminium panels are easy to install and offer long-lasting benefits due to its amazing abilities to withstand corrosion and recyclability. The honeycomb aluminium structure is developed for superior strength and is used widely across different industries. Aluminium is used in formula one cars, helicopters and the aircraft industry.
A big chunk of our product line includes aluminium and aluminium panels in particular. If you are curious about other projects you can check our projects page (link). Our panel products containing aluminium are Q-Basic, Q-eco and Q-premium and can all be supplied in aluminium or other metals like zinc, titanium, stainless steel and copper. All panels have their own unique application but we can also supply tailor-fit solutions for any other project requirement. We built in different shapes and sizes and can also produce aluminium panels flat or curved. Any project requirement can be supplied, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us below.
