Honeycomb Core Wood Panels – Lightweight Panels

What is a Honeycomb Core Wood Panel?

Our lightweight honeycomb core wood panels, manufactured in Canada, offer innovative weight-saving solutions. By utilizing MDF skins and a corrugated honeycomb core material, these panels can reduce weight by up to 85%. This makes them ideal for a variety of applications including wall panels, acoustic panels, doors, shelves, gables, and ceiling beams.

Available in thicknesses ranging from 3/4” to 3-3/4”, and sizes up to 5 ft x 12 ft sheets, these wood panels provide both versatility and efficiency. Standard finishes include laminate (HPL), raw ready to be veneer or painted and acoustic felt ensuring that there is an option to suit every design need.

Typically constructed with five layers: Face, skin, honeycomb core, skin and face. Our lightweight panels can be customized with a variety of core materials to meet specific design requirements. Adhesive varies widely by application: high strength, high temp, low temp, etc.

Light, Strong, Tough, and Cost-Effective

Our honeycomb core wood panels combine high strength and lightweight characteristics, offering an efficient and robust alternative to traditional core materials such as plywood, particleboard, and MDF. These panels are designed for ease of use across various markets, applications and processes and can be engineered to meet specific strength and stiffness requirements.

 

Key Features of Honeycomb Core Wood Panels

Lightweight & Strong: The thin, hollow hexagonal structure of the honeycomb core ensures that the panels are both lightweight and exceptionally strong.

Super Flatness: Unlike plywood, which can have surface inconsistencies and internal stresses, our honeycomb structure ensures long-term flatness. This makes them ideal for applications where precision and aesthetics are crucial.

 

Applications of Honeycomb Core Wood Panels

  • Furniture panels: Ideal for producing desks, tables, storage, cabinets, closets, and other furniture pieces, our honeycomb panels provide strength and durability without the added weight.
  • Architectural uses: Perfect for interior ceilings, wall panels and partition walls, these panels offer versatile solutions for a range of architectural needs.

The Importance of Weight in Architectural Interior Design

Understanding why weight is crucial in architectural interior design can enhance the strength, longevity, portability, and cost-effectiveness of your projects. Here’s a closer look at why weight matters and the innovative materials that make lightweight construction possible.

  • Strength-to-Weight Ratio

Traditionally, heavier materials were considered more durable and stronger. However, advancements in engineering and design have shown that lightweight materials can offer exceptional strength. For example, in construction applications like bridge reinforcement and seismic retrofitting, carbon fiber composites are used because they provide exceptional strength with minimal additional weight, significantly enhancing structural performance without substantial weight increases.

Our materials can reach lengths of up to 144″ with minimal bending and deflecting.
