  • Clean. The production process thoroughly cleans panels and removes any oil from the surface. Minimal handling assures that all panels are completely clean when they are packaged.
  • Consistent. Three factors assure consistent quality at low cost:
    • Volume metal purchasing from selected mills.
    • Automated production on a high-speed line.
    • Rigorous inspection at several processing stages.
  • Convenient. Panels are supplied pre-cleaned, with a ¼” (6 mm) Q-shaped hole.
  • Economical. Because of high volume production, our panels cost less than you might expect for a standardized surface. Purchasing clean, safe, standardized panels reduces the time lab personnel must spend cleaning and handling panels.
