Timber faced aluminium composite panels can be used for an array of applications including bespoke furniture and wall partitions.
BCP’s timber faced aluminium composite panels consist of aluminium honeycomb core sandwiched in between two aluminium alloy skins complete with a wooden finish.
“Timber is a durable material for both homes and commercial buildings. When properly looked after it can last hundreds of years,” – Planet Ark.
According to research by Planet Ark, 96% of people agreed that timber is ‘visually appealing’ and ‘has a natural look and feel’. In addition, it found that eight out of ten people also thought that timber is versatile, recyclable, renewable and long lasting.
Applications for timber faced aluminium composite panels:
BCP’s timber faced aluminium composite panels can be used as decorative cladding for bespoke furniture or as partition walls.
We supply furniture craftsmen with aluminium honeycomb panels faced with water resistant MDF which they finish with wood veneer to produce bespoke products.
Depending on the type of wood used they are a perfectly suitable alternative to a tiled backsplash in the kitchen.
These lightweight aluminium composite panels with a timber finish can also be used for the interior finishing of caravans and motorhomes.
As well as using wood as a finish, BCP can also incorporate the material in other ways.
When working with Zenzie Tinker Conservation, the BCP team were tasked with manufacturing four rigid lightweight support panels by using the best combination of lightweight honeycomb and thin facing sheets.
Three of the panels were required to be 1450 x 1450 x 33mm whilst the fourth a considerably larger size of 3020 x 2070 x 33mm. All four panels were built using 1mm thick aluminium facing sheets with 50 x 31 mm Red Grandis hardwood going all the way around the edge.
The Red Grandis hardwood, which is a eucalyptus wood, was used due to its superior engineering properties (ensuring the panels do not shrink).
The four panels were used by Zenzie Tinker Conservation to create bespoke conservation mount boards edged with silk to store and display a set of metal and textile Kiswa embroideries originally used to cover the Holy Kaaba at Mecca in the late 19th century, for the Dubai Cultural Authority.
