Sandwich construction is popularly used in commercial and aerospace industries mainly thanks to its lightweight nature, a structure that showcases great stiffness, and a higher strength-to-weight ratio. Sandwich structure composites have two metal face sheets stuffed with a core inside. The structures are extremely lightweight, durable and have greater stability. Moreover, the lightweight core keeps the face sheets in an apt position aiding to resist shear forces, providing insulation, weather and impact resistivity. Therefore, the use of sandwich panels in the construction sector has become very common and many companies are manufacturing sandwich panels in Dubai. A sandwich panel is a structure that contains a combination of simple, different, alternative, or composite materials that are assembled and fixed to bind the structural advantages of each.
The pro features of sandwich panels
In this blog, we will be discussing the advantages of sandwich panels in Dubai.
Thermal, sound and fire insulation
Sandwich panels in Dubai possess excellent thermal insulation properties. It is good to know that the thermal insulation versus thermal conductivity varies depending on the thickness and materials used. Insulated sandwich panels can help lower the amount of energy needed for cooling/heating operations which automatically lowers the energy costs.
When the sandwich panels are properly integrated, it decreases the risk of mold and mildew formation. The total thickness of insulation material in the sandwich panels depends on the load-bearing and thermal capacity requirements, building purpose, and environmental factors. The panels help to isolate the noise source from other areas inside the facility. Sandwich panels have excellent sound insulation properties. Sandwich panels are resistant to fire which is a very big advantage.
Higher-strength to weight ratio and cost-effectiveness
Compared to solid laminates, sandwich panels have a higher strength-to-weight ratio. Therefore, they can support the greater load with less structural material. This can lead to purchasing lesser quantity material and low transportation costs. Sandwich structures are cost-effective because the core materials are less expensive compared to other composite reinforcement materials. In addition, the higher durability of this material lowers the maintenance costs.

Some of the other advantages of sandwich panels include:
- Comfortable in its initial state
- Once cured, the panels are not easy to crush
- Does not absorb moisture
- Does not compact under vacuum
- Not prone to delamination
- Easy to use, install and maintain.
