- What are the biggest advantages of sandwich panels?
Sandwich panels have numerous advantages in terms thermal insulation, energy efficiency, aesthetic and design characteristics, and many more. We can say that sandwich panel systems are the best solution for industrial buildings and recently they are increasingly being applied in passive houses as well.
- Which are the current trends in the sandwich panel systems that you can highlight?
An interesting trend is that sandwich panels tend to displace other alternative products such as layered facades and roofing solutions. Another significant trend is linked with the energy efficiency that has been a key topic recently. Generally, up to 80% of the total energy consumed by a certain building is used for heating and cooling. The use of appropriate insulation, such as sandwich panels systems, can significantly reduce its amount. Another benefit is that the roofs sandwich panels systems can be the best solution for installation of solar systems or other types of energy sources. Speaking about that, many companies are now building photovoltaic parks in order to consume the energy for their needs, which is much more cost efficient.
