Aluminium Honeycomb Panels

Why choose Aluminium Honeycomb Panels for Clean Rooms?

Aluminium Honeycomb is a lightweight core material offering excellent strength and corrosion resistance for clean room panel applications.

Advantages:

  • Non-shedding
  • Low weight and high strength
  • Incombustible
  • Well accepted by FM
  • Mechanical stability
  • Excellent flatness

One of the most important advantages to aluminium honeycomb clean room panels is the fact that it is non-shedding. Unlike aluminium honeycomb panels, if Mineral Fibre, PIR or PUR panels are pierced or broken it can release spores into the clean room environment. As a result the clean room may need to be shut down, cleaned extensively, air system filtered and then revalidated.

Aluminium honeycomb panels have a better resistance to damage due to their high crush strength and are also easier to repair. They can simply be filled or reskinned whereas other panels may need to be completely replaced causing further delays and problems for the clean room.

Using Aluminium Honeycomb Panels In Comparison To Other Building Materials Has 5 Key Benefits

Increased strength and stability – The aluminium honeycomb provides a more consistent, superior strength throughout the whole panel.

Lightweight – The lightweight properties of aluminium honeycomb panels can reduce the cost of transport and potentially the amount of labour required.

Ease of installation – Easier, safer and more secure installation. As well as reduced install times. This can outweigh the extra cost of aluminium honeycomb.

Manufactured and pre-fabricated to size and specification – Reduces cutting install time and uncertainty of installation on site.

Design Flexibility – Lightweight and high strength allows architects and designers the freedom to utilise in ways that heavy and fragile materials cannot be.
