Looking for a custom design facade solution in aluminium or any other popular cladding materials?
At AFS International we build sandwich composite panel systems that can fit any project requirement. Aluminium is often used but we can also deliver panels in zinc, titanium, stainless & corten steel and copper. Our composite panels are two sheets of any metal that surround a honeycomb core. This core is usually made from aluminium. This honeycomb core creates a lightweight panel but gives stability and strength at the same time. Aluminium panels are completely made of aluminium, both the core and the outside sheets are made of this light but strong metal.
Aluminium and aluminium panels offer may advantages over other choices of metal.
It is a very light metal, a third of the weight of steel. Aluminium weights around 2,7g/cm3. Installation is much easier due to the low weight of the panels.
Aluminium has a natural protective oxide coating. This is especially useful for the facade of buildings where aluminium will last for several decades.
Aluminium panels are completely recyclable. It requires very little energy to re-smelt aluminium. Only around 5 per cent of the energy that it takes to produce aluminium is needed to recycle it.
Because aluminium is ductile and has a low melting point. It allows us to easily form aluminium panels to the project requirements
We are able to offer the maximum design freedom and flexibility to meet the architectural expectations. Our team consists of engineers, designers and project managers, allowing us to create new designs from scratch, and provide the full working drawings AFS International is involved in every step of the development process and will assist wherever needed. Our video illustrates parts of our design and production process. This is the process of our sandwich panels, which is only a small part of our manufacturing capabilities.
