Sandwich panels are two panels (metal skins) that encase an honeycomb core. It’s called sandwich because there’s two bread slices that surround the metal honeycomb filling. Even though there’s several fillings for our zinc sandwich panels most are built with the aluminium hexagonal pattern as a base. The aluminium honeycomb core is lightweight but gives extreme stability and strength combined with the zinc panels.
Advantages of the Zinc panels
Zinc panels are easy to install and this is where AFS International comes in to help. All our architectural zinc panels are lightweight and include thermal insulation on the inside. Because of the excellent insulation our zinc panels will make sure heat stays inside the building in winters and heat stays outside the building during hot summers or other climate conditions. The panels help maintain the preferred temperature of your building and help save power airconditioning or heating your building.
Zinc cladding advantages
The zinc cladding material is incredibly resistant to all weather conditions. Zinc doesn’t rust and is not affected by corrosion. This is why many customers choose zinc panels over regular steel panels. Regular steel is affected a lot by rust due to the weather conditions where zinc panels are resistant to all of these. This makes zinc cladding very durable, Zinc will last for several decades. Zinc is also completely recyclable making the material friendly for the environment and very effective to purchase. Zinc is also easy to shape into any design making it a very popular metal to use on the facade of any building. Zinc is often used in construction and in industrial areas but is also popular in housing estates and modern office buildings.
