Corex Honeycomb has been a trusted aluminium honeycomb provider to the European rail sector for over 20 years. When used in a bonded composite sandwich panel the high strength-to-weight ratio and corrosion resistance provide the perfect application for doors, floors, furniture, galley and sanitary modules (as shown), interior panel partitions and energy absorbers.
Recently Corex Honeycomb collaborated with TRB Lightweight Structures, providing applications used to develop the energy efficient Personal Rapid Transit Pod at London Heathrow Airport. The PRT (Personal Rapid Transit) Pod is an ultra-lightweight, electric, unmanned vehicle connecting Heathrow’s business car park with Terminal 5 via a guide way. TRB Lightweight Structures produced the chassis and floor of the pod utilizing Corex aluminium honeycomb panels to create a lightweight, high-strength composite.
