The Advantages of Using Aluminum Front Panels in Industrial Equipment10 Feb 23

Whether you require control panels for your motor control centres, instrumentation, motor control centres or server racks, aluminium front panels provide many advantages for all kinds of industrial equipment. Aluminium is highly regarded as a strong, lightweight, affordable material that offers excellent protection for electrical components.

With high thermal conductivity, aluminium can dissipate heat quickly, which helps keep temperatures within safe limits when dealing with sensitive electronic components that may be damaged by excessive heat or cold. This ensures your electrical components and servers can work efficiently without overheating or malfunctioning. Below we've detailed some of the key advantages in more detail.

Lightweight Yet Durable

Aluminium is lightweight, but it's also very strong. By reducing the overall weight of the equipment without compromising on sturdiness or reliability, you have more flexibility to create control panels of all shapes and sizes.

Resistant to Corrosion

Aluminum is naturally resistant to corrosion, making it ideal for use in harsh industrial environments. This means that aluminium front panels will last longer and require less maintenance, reducing the cost and hassle associated with equipment maintenance. At 2G Products, we dye the metal during the anodising process so the print is under the anodised surface. This ensures each panel is scratch and solvent-proof.

Easy on the eye

Text and graphics are clear to see, but the polished finish of aluminium can make them an attractive addition to your control centre, whether you're improving your existing arrangement or starting from scratch.

Exceptional quality at a fair price

Aluminium is a premium material, but it's also highly cost-effective because you're afforded exceptional reliability over time. With resistance to corrosion, lightweight properties and the ability to have a truly customisable design that looks great and serves you well for years to come, aluminium front panels offer fantastic value for money.
