Panelite Introduces ECOBEN, a 100% Recycled Honeycomb Light-transmitting, Light-weight Panel for Interiors

Share Article

ECOBEN is a 100% post-consumer recycled honeycomb panel from Panelite, the leader in developing honeycomb technology for architectural and design applications. Light-weight and light-transmitting, ECOBEN is also Panelite's lowest-priced panel.

With a focus on sustainability and resource-efficiency, Panelite has been a leader in honeycomb technology for architectural and design applications since 1998. ECOBENTM, the company's newest lightweight translucent panel, uses a 100% recycled honeycomb core and is the lowest priced panel in the Bonded Series product line for interiors.

"Panelite has always focused on sustainability by minimizing the use of resources. Honeycomb technology offers outstanding structural efficiency. Our panels are highly resistant to deflection and weigh very little, whereas a comparable sheet in cast resin or glass will use significantly more raw material, will weigh two to five times more and will also require more framing, more time and more labor to install," says Emmanuelle Bourlier, CEO. "In addition to all these factors, ECOBENTM goes further to save resources with a structural honeycomb core that is made of 100% post-consumer recycled content."

ECOBENTM panels are lightweight, averaging 1.8 lbs/sf, and weighing two to five times less than cast resin or glass sheets of comparable thickness. Honeycomb core provides exceptional durability and stiffness to increase the panels' life cycle and dramatically reduce the material, time and labor needed for installation. ECOBENTM panels are available with installation-ready ClearConnectTM details such as interlocking tongue and groove joints, pre-fabricated miters and flush integral edges for quick and easy installation and a visually elegant result.

The ECOBENTM range is Panelite's lowest priced offering to date and is part of the Bonded Series product line of panels for interior applications. The panels' cost-effectiveness is heightened when combined with the ease of installation of the ClearConnectTM system.

Panels are available in clear transparent or satin finishes, both light-transmitting, and are compatible with the ClearConnectTM installation system. They are ideal for walls, ceilings, sliding doors, furniture and retail or trade show fixtures such as shelving, stands, tables, and displays.
