Sandwich panels – what you need to know?
Sandwich panels are a very practical, modern construction solution that is used to build halls, warehouses and industrial facilities. Their growing popularity is mainly due to the fact that they provide real competition to traditional building materials.
What are tin panels with increased thermal insulation used for?
Sandwich panels are special sheet metal panels with increased acoustic and thermal insulation. They are ideal for lightweight buildings such as sports, commercial, performance or storage halls. Due to their aesthetic appearance and the fact that they can be installed quickly and easily, they are readily used in modern construction.
How do I lay these panels?
Sandwich panels can be laid both vertically and horizontally. For this reason, these panels are a very popular solution for building not only walls, but also roofs on various facilities.
The advantages of sandwich panels also include the fact that they can be freely shaped into modules, which can then be used on various buildings.In addition to traditional sandwich panels, sandwich panels for the refrigeration industry are available which have special thermal properties. They are mainly used for rooms with low temperatures, e.g. as in a cold store.
Sandwich panel construction
Sandwich panels can differ not only in their application but also in their production technology. A basic sandwich panel is constructed from:
– the external cladding, which is made of profiled steel sheet- with an inner core that acts as a thermal and acoustic insulator and is made up of several sheets. The core sheets can be made of mineral wool, polyurethane foam, polystyrene and other materials.
What are the advantages of sandwich panels?
One of the main advantages of composite panels is their versatility, which is why more and more industries are using them in construction. These panels allow for architectural freedom thanks to modern production technology, as well as a range of available solutions. They fit perfectly into the requirements of any project, as well as the architectural landscape.
Sandwich panels can be used for lining the walls of external buildings and covering roofs. They also have an excellent level of sound insulation and also provide fire safety. They are also easy and quick to install.
Their low weight makes them ideal for assembly and structural expansion. Sandwich panels can be supplied in a variety of colours, which makes it easy to match them to their surroundings, as well as to the investor’s requirements.
What chemistry is used to manufacture sandwich panels?
In order for sandwich panels to fulfil their role, their production process must be carried out using the right materials, such as the right polyurethane adhesive, which will ensure the durability of all joints. The adhesive must adhere permanently to the substrate and the joint must be flexible and vibration-resistant.
