The fibre which is native to the Philippines is known for its use in the production of handbags, carpets, ropes and furnishings. When incorporated into composite panels it produces an impressive organic and textured appearance.
EAC has worked closely with composite engineers to create this unique organic fibre panel system that can be used in structural or non-structural applications in internal and external environments. The system has been through a range of testing including UV and various strength testing to satisfy building code requirements.
Increasingly EAC is being asked by customers to explore innovative and unique systems for use in practical applications. The R&D process for introducing the organic fibre to this project has been very challenging for all stakeholders and after an exhaustive development phase the result is that the customer, designer, architect, engineers and EAC are all very pleased by the outcomes and are excited about the potential of the product across a varied range of architectural applications.
The panels are being shipped to the construction site in the Philippines and erected into position on a 16 metre high and 40 meter diameter composite roof structure that has been manufactured and assembled completely at the EAC facility and then dismantled for transport to the project site.
If you would like to discuss the incorporation of organic and exotic materials into composite structures for Architectural projects please contact Paul Scholten at East Asia Composites to obtain further information and to open up dialogue on the potential possibilities of creating unique composite building systems.
