BENCHMARK Designwall 3000 Architectural Wall Panel

Designwall 3000 is the architectural wall panel of choice for exceptional flatness. This lightweight 1-1/4” thick panel features a honeycomb core between smooth or embossed skins of steel or aluminum. Designwall 3000’s uninsulated core allows for uniform thermal expansion of the face and liner sheet.

  • Offered with an optional aluminum core for use where non-combustible wall construction is required
  • Horizontal and vertical application
  • Variable widths available ranging from 8” – 46”
  • .040” Aluminum gauge option for exterior and interior skin
  • Granitstone, embossed and non-embossed exterior finish options
Note:  Use of Designwall 3000 panels in multistory applications may require additional building code approval. Please contact Kingspan technical services at or your local Kingspan sales representative for details.
