‘Aluminium Honeycomb Panel’ – A Quality Material for Diverse Industries

Many global architectural projects widely use Aluminium Honeycomb Panels (AHP), especially in large buildings that require high-quality materials for strength and durability to ensure the safety of numerous occupants. Examples include the National Grand Theater in Beijing, the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa, the large sports stadium Allianz Arena in Germany, the curved Heydar Aliyev Center designed by Zaha Hadid, and the new starfish-shaped Beijing Daxing International Airport. These projects feature various forms, from large straight panels to free-form curves, meeting every design imagination. This versatility is due to the sandwich structure of aluminium sheets with a honeycomb core, making AHP lighter than other materials of the same size. Additionally, AHP acts as a natural insulator, preventing the transmission of heat and sound, reducing energy consumption, and improving communication quality within buildings.

Benefits in Large Buildings:

AHP from FAMELINE is manufactured in Thailand (Made in Thailand: MiT) and comes in thicknesses ranging from 6 to 50 millimeters, with lengths up to 6 meters. It meets European standard EN 13501-1 and has a fire rating of Class A2. AHP is corrosion-resistant, moisture-resistant, and available in various colors, including solid tones, vibrant colors, natural wood patterns, or reflective metallic finishes. The PVDF coating system is certified by the AAMA from the USA, with a color warranty of 10-20 years (depending on the selected shade). AHP is ideal for building facades with large, seamless panels, vertical fins, lightweight geometric shapes, or as roofing for walkways between buildings.

Usage in Clean Rooms:

AHP can also be adapted for interior decoration, especially in clean rooms or environments requiring high hygiene standards. In addition to being fire-resistant, lightweight, and durable, AHP’s smooth, non-porous surface makes it easy to clean. Special coatings like anti-static and anti-bacterial coatings prevent the accumulation of dust and microorganisms. AHP is also corrosion-resistant, which is crucial for frequent cleaning and exposure to various chemicals and disinfectants. This durability ensures a long lifespan, maintaining a consistent surface temperature. AHP is used in semiconductor production rooms (key components in electronic devices), pharmaceutical production rooms, medical equipment manufacturing rooms, biotechnology laboratories, electronic component factories, food processing areas, hospital operating rooms, and advanced technology and nuclear research facilities.

Usage in Interior Design:

AHP is also used in various interior design applications, such as large, lightweight ceiling panels, partitions in offices or exhibition rooms, elevator walls, or high-quality furniture components like tables, chairs, storage cabinets, and shelves. These applications provide strength without adding much weight, offering a sleek, modern look, easy mobility, and recyclability due to aluminium’s eco-friendly properties. This makes AHP a key component in vehicle manufacturing, where reducing costs and sustainability are critical, making it a globally recognized innovation in transportation.

Usage in the Automotive and Shipbuilding Industry:

Examples include truck bodies to reduce weight without compromising structural integrity and protecting against harsh weather conditions. AHP is used in specialized vehicles like ambulances, which require lightweight materials for agility, or military vehicles for durability and speed.

AHP is also crucial in the shipbuilding industry, where lightweight materials are essential for transportation. AHP provides strength to withstand wave impacts, resists the harsh marine environment’s high corrosion, and has a non-toxic surface friendly to marine life. The flexibility of AHP allows for various shapes, especially the curved structures of ships, which must be adjusted to meet different navigation requirements.

Usage in the Aviation Industry:

In the aviation industry, AHP’s lightweight yet durable properties are used for interior airplane design, such as flooring, walls/partitions, ceilings, storage compartments, and sinks. AHP is also used for the fuselage, wings, or propellers of airplanes, which must withstand fluctuating temperatures and low-pressure conditions.

AHP’s versatile and beneficial properties make it internationally recognized, meeting the standards of various industries and proving advantageous for users, project owners, and designers alike.
