The benefits of a sandwich wall system
Sandwich wall systems ensure good acoustics in rooms. It protects employees against high noise levels, this reduces the risk of hearing damage and it is possible to have conversations in rooms where machines are running. But sandwich wall systems have more advantages, in this blog I list them.
Van Dam’s sandwich panels are widely applicable. They can be used in the onshore and offshore oil & gas industry, wind energy industry and the infrastructure & defense industry. The panels are mainly used for internal and external wall coverings and partition walls.
Fast installation and weight saving
The sandwich wall systems can be installed quickly. A compartment can be equipped with the panels very fast, saving time and money. The compartment can also be put into use much faster.
Another major advantage of the sandwich panels is the weight. Van Dam’s sandwich wall systems are much lighter than other wall panels. For example, the weight of a panel with a thickness of 100 mm is only about 21 kg / m2.
The sandwich panels consist of three layers, a thick core layer and two metal outer plates. The core layer is insulating and is often made from mineral wool. The mineral wool insulation ensures good temperature control in the compartments.
Fire protection is very important in onshore and offshore facilities, of course the sandwich wall systems are also equipped with the necessary fire protection. The insulation is made of non-combustible materials, to prevent the spread of fire.
