Rock West Composites Targets Architecture and Design Markets by Adding Innovative Carbon Fiber Architectural Panels to Its Lineup

Share Article

This month Rock West Composites is increasing the options available in its store by adding carbon fiber architectural panels and other carbon fiber panels of various finishes for use in interior and exterior design projects. The company plans to expand into furniture, lighting and other high-end decorative products, which is yet another way the company is working to bring carbon fiber to a wider consumer market.

We know the aesthetics of carbon fiber have infinite application in the world of design and look forward to seeing the creative ways our customers deploy these new products.

This month Rock West Composites (RWC) announces the addition of 3Form Varia Ecoresin® carbon fiber architectural panel products to its lineup. Carbon fiber has a high-end look that is valued in architecture and interior design projects. By encasing carbon fiber fabric in Varia Ecoresin®, the resulting panels are durable enough for use in indoor or outdoor spaces. In the near future the company anticipates expanding offerings to the architecture and design markets, including matte or high gloss carbon fiber panels, lighting fixtures, furniture and more. There are also plans to offer integrated accessory product lines enabling railing, banister and other construction finishes.

The newly available carbon fiber architectural panels are heat-formable into various shapes, bends or sizes. Since the panels are significantly lighter than glass, they require less structural support and are easier to install. They are also available in hundreds of tints and are incredibly versatile, enabling designers to achieve their desired vision. The panels are very tough, allowing for easy fabrication and maximum durability, and they also offer excellent chemical resistance, reducing potential harm incurred by cleaning agents. As they can tolerate cleaning, these panels make an excellent option for those looking to separate working areas due to distancing requirements during the pandemic. The SCS-certified recycled content helps achieve LEED® credits for building sustainability, and Ecoresin is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified.

“We are excited to be adding these new architectural panels to our line, so excited in fact that we are currently building out office partitions with them in our offices in our Utah facility,” said Dave Erickson, General Manager of the Salt Lake City facility. “We know the aesthetics of carbon fiber have infinite application in the world of design and look forward to seeing the creative ways our customers deploy these new products.”
