ALUCOBOND® – Soffit Panels Manufacturers

ALUCOBOND® is the “Original” and has been the market leader in aluminium composite panels world-wide since 1969.

ALUCOBOND® shows excellent product properties such as extraordinary flatness, a large variety of colours and perfect formability. It has been developed as a rigid and, at the same time, flexible fascia material for architecture. ALUCOBOND® is extremely weatherproof, impact-resistant and break-proof, vibration-damping, and ensures easy and fast installation.

As a light composite material consisting of two aluminium cover sheets and a plastic core, the versatile ALUCOBOND® product is a material also preferred in areas other than architecture, such as corporate design, and is widely used in industry and transportation.

Numerous international prizes have been awarded for this successful product. With more than 130 million sq.m of ALUCOBOND® sold, it has proved to be one of the most successful materials world-wide. ALUCOBOND® is also one of the best Soffit panels manufacturers, delivering soffit solutions across Asia and the Middle East.

Wind load and permissible panel sizes

 

The above diagrams indicate the available ranges of panel thickness and permissible range lengths at a given panel width (1250 or 1500 mm), depending on the loads applied.
The diagramms apply to panels supported on four sides (corners fixed). Dimensional values for other systems are available on request.
