Thanks to their low weight and high stability Metawell® panels are ideal for ship interior works.
The high inherent rigidity of Metawell® allows statics to be weakened by large cutouts for recessed lights and the stress caused by high lamp weights, e.g. of pendant lights up to 7.5 kg. As a rule, it is not necessary to hang the lights separately from the raw ceilings. As the panels are provided with a special primer, the panels are ideally suited for further processing with paint, wallpaper (possibly additional adhesion promoter is requested) or foils.
Metawell® gapless ceilings are offered with different edge finishes. They are often provided with filler chamfers at the panel joints to ensure that the filler can be removed to zero. Thanks to the extraordinary flatness of the panel, only the joint area has to be filled and not the entire panel. In shipbuilding, care must be taken to use elastic filler.
