At the core of each Openchannelflow shelter is our X-Web sandwich panel design. The design sandwiches an insulating foam core between two fiberglass skins.
To insure maximum strength and eliminate any chance of delamination, after each panel of insulation is applied, it is encapsulated in fiberglass. The result is a beam of fiberglass that is bonded to the inner and outer fiberglass skins - tying them together and increasing the stiffness / strength of the panel.
Insulation values are determined by the customer’s needs, with the 2-inches (R~14) standard.
Pound for pound fiberglass is stronger than sheet metal. It will not rust and it is perfect for outside use or at locations near water, especially salt water, or the corrosive environments found at treatment and chemical plants.
