In an effort to consume less of our world’s natural resource, decrease the structural loads applied to buildings, introduce standardized technology into the design of commercial interiors we embrace and utilize the light-weight sandwich composite panel design.The Design + Development Group represents leading manufacturers of lightweight composite panel systems used in construction and contributes to the reduction of the cost of construction.The manufacturers and products we represent exercise in the fabrication extensive reliance on recycled materials (foam, paper, aluminum, steel, etc.) These materials along with proprietary adhesives use to assemble the “honeycombed structural core” of most composite panels support a thin layer of exposed surface material or material hybrid.The finished product reflects an exposed surface material varying in type from glass to any stone surface desired.The composed panels, while providing an amazing weight reduction, also provide amazing costsavings, design flexibility, and ease of application.

Composite panels are a combination of outer skins bonded with structural adhesives a honeycomb core material. The characteristics of the panels are engineered to meet the requiredperformance.Frames, hardware, and a wide assortment of hardware options allows for a wide variety of applications. The performance characteristics of composite panels have found its way into unique design applications in ceilings, floor, walls, transportation liners, etc. Further development have made this product an integral part of the Design+Development Groups’ line of product representation. The primary advantages of composite panels compared to solid or solid derivative materials are: ·Reduced weight panels ·Superior strength ·Engineered Characteristics (Elasticity, tensile and Compressive strength) ·Reduced panel thickness ·Economical ·Unique Application ·Standardization and production ·Low deflection ·High thermal, acoustic, and retardant capacity ·Innovative and Aesthetic flexibility ·High impact resistance **The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), provides a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction
