Aluminum is a popular industrial metal material due to its strong yet lightweight characteristics. This metal is durable, soft, and malleable and it is not a heavy material. It has stiffness and density about one-third of the steel metal. Due to its softness, it is easy to machine, cast, extrude, brake and form. This material is also well known for its extreme corrosion resistance ability. Aluminum Plate Panel is one of the most used products of this metal, which is used in modern era.
Aluminum Plate is very applicable for projects, which require clean finish and high tech look exterior wall cladding. It is perfect for hospitals, modern building with unordinary architectural design and corporate headquarters. This product is a complete flexible and versatile system, which allows the ability of having curvilinear or clean flat lines construction involving making radius and bending. These plates are also ideal option for cladding soffits, fascia, balconies and canopies. Easy fabricating ability of the material make it extremely appropriate for intricate designs and unique architectural details.
Aluminum Plate Panels are made from solid and pure aluminum. This paneling system is very reliable, fire resistant and sustainable. These panels are available in large amount of colors and finishes and they are approvable for flat cladding systems. Plate panels can be utilized in a wide variety of construction and building applications whether they are interior or exterior. Fabrication and installation options for these metal wall panels are limitless due to their solid aluminum structural characteristic, which opposed to thin sheet metals or other materials on a composite core. In comparison to other systems, these panels are weld-able, thus unique and different shapes can be attached and fabricated for any demanding design. In addition, aluminum plate panel system is more budget friendly and it is due to the post painting procedure and lower paint costs when any panel quantities require for a color. With virtually unlimited color options and finishes, aluminum plate panels are exceptional product to work with.
Aluminum Plate System Features
Attachment System for Thermal Movement
When temperature of the panel is increased or decreased for any reason such as climate and seasonal weather change, the material start to expand or contract. A good example is that in range of -20 to 30 degrees, the length of the product will approximately have 3mm expansion. Thus, this is a very important factor for building cladding material. Aluminum Plate system is installed in a way which the expansion and contraction will not be an issue anymore.
Single Panel Replacement
It is completely natural to have damaged piece of panel especially in exterior cladding due to the exposing light, dust etc. However, these problems can be solved if the material maintained properly. Alternatively, even some building owners chose to replace some of the panels with another color selection. Aluminum Plate system allow builders to change a specific panel if it is required and there is no need for complete renovation.
Long Lasting Finishes
Aluminum Plates lifetime can be increased by applying storing and long lasting finishes. There are many types of finishes, which can do the job. Mechanical method is buffing, polishing grinding and sanding which can improve surface quality and prepare the material for other cosmetic finishes. Bright dipping is one of the most common methods, which is used for giving a specular or mirror finish to the product. Anodizing is another method, which is electrochemical process for providing additional protection. Liquid paint is also a common system for coating aluminum plates and they allow the material to have uniform film thickness and unique characteristics. These are the few of the finishes available in industry.
Easy Maintenance and Budget-friendly
Maintenance of any product can be very costly for the owner. Aluminum plates have the advantage of being maintained easily with the lowest cost possible. Cleaning methods for these materials are very easy to deploy. For high-rise building, there is presence of many different challenges. However, these challenges are not about the methods of cleaning but the tools and specialist, which can increase the expenditure for the building owner.
Water and Fire Resistance
Aluminum plate systems are both water and fire resistant. Modern building safety standards are crucial nowadays. These plates are perfect and suitable for buildings, which require high-level safety and are built in areas having humid or rainy climate. It is good to mention, aluminum plates are used in making rain screen panels due to their ability of being waterproof. Fire has always been a thread for building constructions. These products prevent the facility from having enormous damages caused by fire and they protect the portions from fire spread. Thus, they are perfect for extinguishing fire in short amount of time.
