A sandwich panel is a structure made of three layers: low density core inserted in between two relatively thin skin layers. This sandwich setup allows to achieve excellent mechanical performance at minimal weight. The very high rigidity of a sandwich panel is achieved thanks to interaction of its components under flexural load applied to the panel: core takes the shear loads and creates a distance between the skins which take the in-plane stresses, one skin in tension, the other in compression.
Honeycomb sandwich panel has been proven as the most efficient sandwich design with respect to mechanical performance and weight. Aerospace and aircraft industry uses the honeycomb structures as they meet the tough requirements of related applications. The use of honeycomb sandwich design in more common applications has been more limited due to the batch wise manufacturing processes and hence relatively high production costs.
Quantam sandwich panels are delivered as prefabricated finished panels which give you the option to choose between different insulation materials, profiles, insulation dimensions, surfaces and a range of colours. The panels are compact, all-in-one elements, consisting of an outer, solid envelope, a layer of insulation and an inner liner.
