Naval

One of the many application fields of aluminum structural Wallflex® panel is shipbuilding. Strength, lightness and non combustibility are features that make this panel ideal for a wide range of application on board.

Aluminum structural Wallflex® panel is born to satisfy the naval demands and necessities.

Structural Wallflex® panel is ideal for shipbuilding:

  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • Lightness plus rigidity and strength
  • High workability with standard tools, similar to ones used for wood working
  • Non combustibility, MED certified
  • Good noise reduction
  • Dimensional stability
  • Easy to install
  • 100% recyclable
  • Wide range of surface finishes (included powder painting)

Frequent Applications

The more frequent applications in shipbuilding are the following:

  • Column covers
  • Cylindrical or semi-cylindrical prop covers
  • False ceilings
  • Partition walls (Balcony of passenger cabins)
  • Wall covers
  • Inspection hatches
  • Toilets
  • Furniture

Wall covers

Structural Wallflex® panel can be used on board as walls or wall covers, both flat and curved, by using Wallflex® flat panel, Wallflex® monolayer panel or Wallflex® shaped panel. Thanks to the possibility to have different surface finishes, they can be integrated in the ship design.

False ceilings

It is possible to use aluminum Wallflex® panels as ceiling elements, with the help of a simple structure. That is possible thanks to Wallflex® panel’s lightness and dimensional stability.
