How to close off a terrace with sandwich panels.

Everything you need to know before closing off a terrace using sandwich panels

Are you looking for an extra privacy with the enclosure of your terrace? Closing the terrace with a sandwich panel may be the solution you need.

What is a sandwich panel?

Sandwich panels are a type of composite panel widely used in construction. These plates consist of three layers:

  • Thermo-lacquered aluminium sheet: compatible with RAL coatings, or anodised, imitation wood, and other finishes.
  • Extruded polystyrene core: high compressive strength core that provides excellent thermal insulation. Depending on the thickness, higher levels of stiffness and insulation can be achieved.
  • Thermo-lacquered aluminium sheet: compatible with RAL coatings, or anodised, imitation wood, and other finishes.

Advantages of using sandwich panels when closing off terraces:

  • Completely opaque material.
  • Light structure.
  • Highly resistant to impacts.
  • Great thermal and sound insulation.
  • Great variety of finishes: white, anodised, silver, bronze, gloss, matte, etc.
  • No maintenance required.

How to close off a terrace with sandwich panels.

Sandwich panels are the perfect choice for applications where a completely opaque roof is required, where no light can enter when the roof is closed. Once the roof is opened, light is allowed back in.

Thus, it is possible to completely enclose a room by closing the panels and to open them as needed. They are particularly useful when the aim is to provide shade or to use the system as if it were a conventional roof when closed.

In addition, it can be fitted with a built-in lighting system to illuminate the inside of the enclosure once the roof is closed.

Examples of terrace enclosures with sandwich panels.

The sandwich panels of the roof create an enclosure that provides shade areas where the incidence of sunlight is excessive.

This versatile roof can be fully opened to restore contact with the outside.

Sandwich panels can be installed in combination with glass panels, thus creating selective shade areas.

Fixed sandwich panel roofs.

As in the first application, the entire enclosure is made of sandwich panels, but in this case the system cannot be opened.

This option is perfect for enclosures prioritising privacy and/or shade.

It can be used in areas with excessive incidence of sunlight, or where extra privacy is required, such as interior terraces overlooking neighbours' patios.

An interesting addition to the above-mentioned cases is to install LED lights to the retractable roof in order to ensure lighting at all times.

These lights are easily controlled with the same remote control as the rest of the system, thus facilitating operations.
