How do you choose the right sandwich panels for your construction?

In addition to their already well-known undeniable benefits, thermo-insulating panels also have the ability of being extremely versatile products, when we refer to the particular aspects of your project’s activity and construction.

Thus, I will definitely focus on the right panel category, depending on the particular aspects of the business. And the wide range of panels can successfully meet my constructive requirements:

  • Flammable potential:

If I know that the business for which I am making the investment will have a flammable potential, I will turn to fire-resistant thermo-insulating panels – with mineral wool or PIR – and I will check both fire resistance (in minutes), as well as the reaction to fire class of the proposed panel.


  • Constant temperature:

On the other hand, if I know that my application requires low temperatures or maintaining certain temperatures, I will definitely focus on thermo-insulating panels which serve this purpose – PUR panels, with polyurethane core – and I will check the type of joint between the panels, because it can significantly influence the heat transfer.


  • Saline environment:

If I know that my project will be exposed to such an environment (for example, close to the sea), I will look for a panel that is specially coated for saline environments. Therefore, I will ask the supplier for information regarding the sheet metal coatings which are specifically designed for such an exposure.


  • Special applications:

I will be just as careful if my applications are of the zootechnical, food, pharma or “noise reduction” type.

For example: for zootechnical applications, it is known that in such spaces vapors filled with ammonia are produced, and therefore I will focus on a panel that has an inner support layer made of polyester resin reinforced with fiberglass.

Or, in “pharma” or “food” applications, where there might be special hygiene requirements, I will turn to a panel that has special coatings of the inner support layer.

Also, for high quality soundproofing, I can use a Roof or a Wall Sound panel – with mineral wool filling and perforated inner sheet, for better noise absorption.
