Panels and Boards

Low Weight, Easy to Cut and Fasten

Advantages of LWA in Panels and Boards

  • cost reduction (savings in binder)

  • weight reduction

  • non-combustible

  • thermal insulation

  • sound absorption

  • easy to cut and fasten

Acoustic and Cooling/

Heating Panels

The porous structure of acoustic panels with LightWeight Aggregate offers excellent sound absorption. This allows smooth and jointless surfaces because no extra sound apertures are required as with conventional systems. Various innovative panel systems with LightWeight Aggregate have been developed for walls and ceilings. They combine sound insulation and air conditioning with non-combustible properties and a seamless appearance. Applications include offices, conference rooms, schools, exhibition and concert halls.

Carrier Boards for

Facade Systems

Due to its resistance to heat, cold and humidity LightWeight Aggregate expanded glass is also ideal for carrier boards in lightweight, ventilated rainscreen cladding systems. These carrier boards are suitable for glass, stone or render finishes and provide excellent weather protection, impact resistance and can even be used to form tight curves. Such systems allow renovation and redesign with ease.

LightWeight Boards

Fire Resistant Boards

LightWeight Aggregate expanded glass provides high compressive strength, resistance to cold and humidity and is non-combustible. Consequently, LightWeight Aggregate is used in boards and panels for both commercial and residential interiors. Thanks to their low weight, optimised stability and easy handling, lightweight boards with LightWeight Aggregate are popular among craftsmen. The boards are comfortable to handle and easy to cut and fasten like wood.

LightWeight Aggregate is pure glass and therefore non-combustible (A1 according DIN 4102) and releases no harmful gases when heat is applied. LightWeight Aggregate is ideal for mineral bonded fire resistant boards for wall, ceiling and facade construction. The advantage of fire safety, high flexural strength and high wear resistance in combination with weight reduction opens up a wide spectrum of opportunities for fire resistant applications.
