Aluminum Honeycomb Panels
When applications require a lightweight, high strength composite panel, PortaFab's aluminum honeycomb panels are often the best solution. The cell size, grade of aluminum, depth of the material, and thickness of the cell wall are all variables that can be specified to create a honeycomb panel with the best properties for your application.
As a general rule, these panels have the following attributes:
- Extremely Low Weight
- Excellent Strength
- High Resistance to Moisture
- High Resistance to Corrosion
- Excellent Thermal Conductivity
- High Resistance to Fungi
Types of Aluminum Honeycomb Panels
PortaFab wall panels can be customized with different types of facing materials to ensure that your panels are properly designed and protected for your application. Listed below are popular aluminum panel options that are ideally suited for most industries.
Aluminum on Aluminum
When the application requires a flat, rigid and lightweight work surfaces, aluminum honeycomb panels with aluminum facings offer flat, wear-resistant surfaces that can be custom machined. Panels can have open edges or be closed out.
These aluminum panels are ideal for controlled environments and cleanrooms due to their non-particulating and non-outgassing nature along with their excellent resistance to chemicals. They are ideal for wall panels, ceiling panels, and door infills.
PortaFab offers a variety of panel edges, thicknesses, and densities to meet your exact requirements. These panels can interface anywhere in the curtainwall system... as a spandrel panel or for soffits or fascia in conjunction with glazing.
With a non-particulating and non-outgassing nature along with excellent resistance to chemicals, these museum panels can be used for everything from archiving and preserving fine artwork and photographs to providing a structural backing for graphics, signage, or other decorative material.
PVC Coated Panel
Featuring face and back sections made from 24-gauge PVC coated steel, these panels are ideal in applications where organic contamination is critical. The PVC coating allows the panel seams to be chemically welded for a seamless, monolithic surface.
Tread Plate Panel
Structural aluminum panels featuring a stainless steel tread plate face for applications requiring a walkable ceiling plank. These panels are installed in the same basic manner as ceiling tile, while also providing a safe walking surface. They are available in Kynar, epoxy, and anodized finishes on opposite sides.
