The Ultimate Guide to ACM Panel Price Factors

2023/07/04

Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) panels are a popular cladding material, widely used in various architectural projects. They are multi-layered panels, consisting of two aluminum sheets bonded to a polyethylene core material.


One of the main factors to consider when selecting ACM panels is the price. ACM panel price varies depending on several factors. In this ultimate guide, we'll discuss price factors to consider when selecting ACM panels.


Types of ACM Panels and their Price Range


There are two types of ACM panels: standard and fire-resistant. The standard ACM panels have a plastic core that's not fire-resistant. On the other hand, fire-resistant ACM panels have a Mineral-filled core material with better fire-resistant properties. The price of ACM panels varies depending on the type of panel. Fire-resistant ACM panel price is 20-30% higher than the standard ACM panel price.


Another factor that influences price is the panel thickness. The thicker the panel, the higher the cost. Standard thickness ranges between 2mm-4mm. Additional thickness may add weight to the panel, which could require more support frames.


The Surface Finish


ACM panels come in different surface finishes. The most common are


1. Pvdf coating


Pvdf coating gives the panels a glossy and shiny finish, making them durable and resistant to harsh environments. Pvdf coated panels are more expensive, but they have a long lifespan, which makes them worth their price.


2. PE coating


PE coating is less expensive than the Pvdf coating. It gives the panels a matte finish, making them ideal for interior use.


3. Anodized finish


Anodized finish gives the panel a metallic look. It's mainly used in industrial applications.


Panel Size


ACM panels come in different sizes, and the size of the panel affects the price. The larger the panel size, the higher the price, and the longer the lead time to produce the panel. Commonly, the panel size ranges from 1220mm x 2440mm to 1500mm x 5000mm.


Quantity and Location


The quantity of panels to be used also affects the price. The higher the quantity, the lower the price per panel. Shipping and handling cost also plays a significant role in the price of ACM panels. Ordering panels from a faraway location adds to the cost, hence it’s better to order from local manufacturers.


Installation Cost


Installation cost varies with design complexity. If the project requires simple installation, the installation cost is lower since simple designs require less labor. Complex designs require more labor and may need specialized installation equipment.


Conclusion


ACM panel prices can vary widely depending on these five main factors: Panel type, surface finish, panel size, quantity and location, and installation cost. When selecting ACM panels, it's essential to consider the project's budget and the desired look of the building. Remember to ask for ACM panel samples to determine the surface finish and color before making a final decision.
