Sandwich panels—also referred to as sandwich structure composites or Sandwich Panel Container—are structural materials that consist of a stiff core between two facesheets (i.e., skins). The core separates and supports the two outer layers, resulting in a composite with high flexural stiffness but low material weight. These qualities, in addition to the material’s superior structural stability, durability, and cost-effectiveness, make sandwich panels suitable for use in a variety of engineering applications.

Compared to other structural materials, sandwich panel cabins offer a variety of advantages, including:
Prefab Sandwich panels exhibit exceptional performance when exposed to flames. Some variations offer fire resistance to temperatures up to and exceed 1000° C.
By using sandwich materials in the construction of a modular building, Khome building designers and engineers can better ensure the safety of employees and equipment. However, they must consider the size and height of the building and the degree of fire resistance required.
Modular Sandwich panel containers demonstrate good thermal insulation properties. However, the thermal insulation vs. thermal conductivity of the material varies depending on the type and thickness of the materials used.
Using sandwich panels in the construction of a Prefabricated container building helps reduce the amount of energy needed for heating/cooling operations, which translates to lower overall energy costs. Additionally, properly integrated, they decrease the risk of mold formation and excess humidity that stems from thermal movement and condensation. The thickness of the insulation material used in the sandwich system depends on the thermal and load-bearing capacity requirements, environmental conditions, and building purpose.
Compared to solid laminates, sandwich panel containers have better strength-to-weight ratios. As a result, they can support comparable loads with less structural material, which can lead to lower material purchasing and transportation costs.
Sandwich panel container structures are a cost-effective option because their core materials are less expensive than other composite reinforcement materials and easy to co-cure to the skins in one-shot processes (e.g., resin infusion). Additionally, their inherent durability lowers their maintenance costs.
