Lightweight elements for marine applications
The lightweight panels made of aluminium are specifically approved for shipbuilding. For the necessary tests the whole sandwich material was tested. The following certifications can be offered:
- Certification according to IMO / SOLAS (or: MED, EC-Type Examination Certificate, Wheelmark)
- Certification according US Coast Guard
- Certification by RS (Russian Maritime Register of Shipping)
Metawell® is produced in Germany and is successfully and extremely versatile used in shipbuilding. With an experience of more than 30 years, we can assist you in finding a technically and economically useful solution – from the lightweight panel to ready-to-be-installed components.
- good corrosion resistance thanks to the use of suitable seawater aluminium alloys according to DIN and an additional primer
- easy processing by using commercial woodworking machinery and best practices of carpenters - both in the workshop or directly on board
- easy installation of mounting parts through e.g. glueing, screwing, riveting
- corrosion protection, also of the core
- individual surfaces by: digital printing, lamination, coating. On request powder-coatable panels can be offered
- the material is suitable for interior design up to the C-class partition and also for the protected outdoor area
- certification according to IMO / SOLAS (or: MED, EC-Type Examination Certificate, Wheelmark), USCoast Guard and RS (Russian Register of Shipping)
- longtime experience in the shipbuilding industry
- delivery of tailored panels and machined parts on request
- 100 % recyclable
Large format Metawell® panels can be used on a ship as walls or wall linings. They can be integrated into any interior design with paints, digital printing, film-coating or HPL. Curved parts and parapet claddings are implemented with the easily formable Metawell® Aluflex. This enables custom interior designs for bars, lounges, theatres or discotheques with hardly any technical limitations.
Large-sized ceiling elements with Metawell® aluminium sandwich panels require only a simple substructure. With the lightweight but dimensionally stable Metawell® aluminium panels, not only the standard frame design is possible, but also self-supporting suspended ceiling canopies, ceiling domes or curved ceiling domes can be realised easily.
To minimize assembly time and to extend the grid width of the substructure for raised floors, the formats of Metawell® aluminium sandwich panels are simply adapted. The Metawell® aluminium panel Alu hl 10-03-10 hl / H6 is used in areas that have higher requirements for the compressive strength of the panels.
Ship furniture and special constructions
Because of their good sound attenuation characteristics and their bending strength, Metawell® aluminium panels are used for the construction of ship furniture and special constructions.
