What is an Aluminum Composite Panel?
Sometimes referred to as ACP, aluminum composite panels are a common building material with several uses for buildings and signage. The material is made of two panels of thin, flat aluminum that are bonded to a non-aluminum center. Although you may not realize it, you probably encounter aluminum composite panels on a fairly regular basis in a day to day life. They are on buildings all over Orlando. Here are some facts that you may not have known about aluminum composite panels.
- They come in a variety of colors
Aluminum composite panels are available in almost 40 different colors and can even be made in custom colors to fit your building application. Designers can choose to have the look of aluminum, copper, zinc, or stainless steel colors. It is difficult to find another building material that can grant this kind of design flexibility with such clean and modern lines that will withstand the tests of time.
- Very lightweight
The finished weight of an aluminum composite panel is about 2.5 pounds per square foot after a complete installation. Compared to other materials that are incredibly lightweight with unbelievable durability and longevity.
- Great for the environment
Choosing to build with aluminum composite panels is an excellent choice for the environment because the building material is considered sustainable. The panels are usually made from about 85% recycled aluminum material. Depending on what state you live in, you may even qualify for tax credits. LEED credits may be granted if your building voluntarily uses this building material. For additional information, look into the U.S. Green Building Council to see if your construction qualifies.
- Protects buildings from fire
To address current building codes throughout the world, aluminum composite panels are available with cores that are made of fire-resistant materials. The core is built to meet codes for large buildings such as skyscrapers and high rise buildings to ensure that noncombustible materials are used to suit the building applications. When purchasing specific aluminum composite panels, be sure to check the fire specifications to ensure they meet your state’s code requirements.
- The Colors Will Last longer
While we pride ourselves in long-lasting, high quality powder coating finished, the color will hold and last even longer using ACM cladding as a substrate. .
