Although the aluminium panels are only 0.55mm thick they do become rigid once the pressing process occurs – i.e. simply pressing or bumping the panel will not effect it. In fact an experiment of hitting an aluminium panel with a construction hammer did little to dent the pattern.
This makes our products suitable to high traffic areas as well as standard ceiling installation. Galvanised panels may also be an option if a higher strength or highly exposed, outdoor cladding is required.
