In addition to the cost reduction based on the lightweight nature of honeycomb core panels, they are also able to improve cost efficiency in relation to hardware costs. Hardware costs, especially in larger heavier panels, often compose a significant component of the project cost. When a lightweight panel product is used in place of a solid core product this allows:
- Use of lower weight rating hardware- this often drops the hardware specification from a high cost/low volume bracket to a low cost/high volume bracket which can have tremendous cost reduction impact
- Reduction of hardware connection points required- especially in ceiling applications really improving cost efficiency
- Simplification of installation methods- with the reduction of weight, installation methods can have simplified hardware even reaching the point of installing with Velcro instead of mechanical fasteners
