Aluminium applications

Aluminium can be used in many different ways. Below you will find the various options.

Aluminium applications

Freebird Aluminium is used in various aluminium panels for façade, roof and wall cladding, balconies, ceilings, canopies etc.

Aluminium Composite Panels

This panel consists of an aluminium inner -and outer sheet and a synthetic core. For the architectural applications, the inner -and outer sheets have a thickness of 0,50mm and the core generally 3,0mm. This core material is made of LDPE or mineral/polymer compound. These panels are often referred to as ACP or ACM. ACP is used for façade-cladding, window flashings, canopies, column-cladding, interior walls and backsplash for kitchens and bathrooms.

Honeycomb panels

A honeycomb panel consists of an aluminium outer -and inner sheet and an aluminium core in honeycomb-shape. Because of their rigidity they are available in large sizes and are often used as façade-cladding, ceilings en floors (trains).

Sandwich panels

This are panels with an aluminium inner -and outer sheet and a core of insulating material, such as PUR, PIR, mineral wool, rock wool, EPS or XPS. The panels are light and have excellent insulating properties, which makes them very suitable for industrial buildings.

Trapezoidal sheets

Trapezoidal sheets are roll formed or produced with a bending/pressing machine. They are available in many geometries and depths. These type of sheets are suitable for facade and roofing.

Sinusoidal sheets

A sinusoidal sheets is a rollformed product. It is available in various depths and dimensions in the shape of a wave. 18/76 is very common, but a smaller or larger wave is also available. The sheets are mainly used for facades, but also sometimes for roofing.

Standing seam panels

These aluminium panels are rollformed and have a high (50 or 65mm) or low (25mm) seam. To save weight and cost, the aluminium coils can be décor-painted (FDC) or digitally printed (FDD) in a patinated zinc or copper appearance. Standing seam is developed to be used for roofing, but it is also more and more used as façade-cladding.

The outer sheet (visible part) of above mentioned panels can be coated (FDC) or digitally printed (FDD) with any imaginable design with practically no limitations.


Shingles are an established product for roof -and facadecladding and enable a very flexible geometry because of their relatively small surface and shape. They are often used to clad dome-structures in their “traditional” diamond shape, but nowadays also in larger dimension in rectangle-shape for façade cladding.


Siding panels are used for façade cladding and can be installed horizontally and vertically. Generally it is a rollformed product, available in various widths and thicknesses, which makes it easy to achieve a practical façade-layout and create varied effects. They are easy to install with a male-female connection.


The aluminium ceilings are often used for larges surfaces such as shopping malls, airports, trainstations, offices etc. The profiles are rollformed and in many shapes and dimensions available.

Customized panels

On project-basis a customized panel can be developed by many manufacturers. The aluminium and the entire paint/printing system is flexible and suitable for rollforming and bending.
