GW series panels are galvanized steel encapsulated panels realized with chipboard or calcium sulphate core. GW panels are produced under a specific patent that provides a vertical and re-entrant structural reinforcement along the whole perimeter comprising two steel trays doubled along the edges and clinched together by a mechanical press. This design grants high load performances.
The Topfloor GW range panels are produced under the European Patent n. 1409812; this patent provides a vertical and reentrant structural reinforcement along the whole perimeter of the two steel trays, doubled along the edges and clinched together. This design grants high load performances while micro areas for dilations ensure dimensional stability against high humidity.
GW series are also available with a “Corner Lock” option, a system which allows the fastening of each panel to the pedestals heads by means of self-tapping screws.
The system offers:
The drilling on the 4 corners is made by CNC machines assuring the best possible calibration and interchangeability of every single element.
From the innovative patent, Topfloor developed a fully automatic production line, one of the most modern in the world, that can produce up to 900 panels per hour. The two steel plates, formed from steel coils, are glued to both sides and clinched by a 250 t mechanical press, without any kind of welding.
