A major benefit in the use of light weight composite building materials is ease of installation. At Velocitor the panels were handled by 2 installers and direct fastened to custom hat channels.
The cladding was manufactured using the closed molding technology of silicon bag infusion. In addition to decreasing the weight of the parts by introducing less resin in the vacuum process, the closed molding also has less environmental impact through the cure cycle than other modes of production.
