Protean’s HC-100 Honeycomb Core Metal Wall Panels are laminated in vacuum presses, using either kraft-paper honeycomb core or aluminum honeycomb core with a variety of skin materials. Our unique dead flat platen vacuum press system utilized in our laminating process ensures extreme flatness and greater composite strength for the extremely light weight. Protean’s panel systems are manufactured with our standard smooth finish panel skins but are also available with non-directional embossed surfaces.

Utilizing standard installation details Protean’s HC-100 Series metal wall panels are to be sequentially installed to the structure with mechanical fasteners as a fully-caulked system.

The HC-100 Series metal wall panels can be designed to be non-sequentially installed utilizing clips attached to the metal wall panels, allowing panels to be installed or removed individually.

Protean’s HC-100 Series Honeycomb Panels can also fabricated to install into a storefront or curtain-wall glazing system as spandrel infill panels or laminated metal glazing panels provide an alternative to vision glass or spandrel glass.
