Our panels called Alu-Panel are not only light weight and strong but also very effective in several adverse situations. They are cost effective, easy to install and durable. Aluminium panels are used like claddings in buildings and have proven very effective in buildings around the world. They require very little investment and maintenance. They are heat, sound and fire resistant.”

Tenzin Tsarong, Alu-Panel’s product specialist said, “These panels are also called sandwich panels because it is two aluminium sheets on either side bonded together in a non-aluminium core.”
