Full Details

Alupanel A-Core shares the high quality visual characteristics of Alupanel XT - our flagship architectural product - and it can be fabricated in the same way. 

The big difference is the sheet manufacturing technology, giving the panel a non-flammable core made from aluminium. These panels are remarkably strong and rigid whilst still being half the weight of aluminium sheet or composite panels that have a conventional mineral core.

From standard solid colours, to metallics and special finishes, Alupanel A-Core is available in a large range of colours. The smooth, flat surface, processing and folding capabilities, combined with the range of fixing options, provide an endless choice of design possibilities.
