Total Articles: 73
Humans from times past have been fascinated by things found in Nature. It has been a constant human endeavour to copy the workings of Nature and incorporate it into technology. We all know where the Wright brothers got the idea for a fixed wing flying machine. This is just an example of man mimicking nature and coming through with breakthrough technology. There is a whole branch of Science dedicated to this mimicking of nature called Bio mimicry or Biomimetics!
I recently came across another invention, or rather an amazing clone of nature, which is rapidly making inroads in our daily household and commercial use. Honey Comb panels! Lets us, through this article, explore a few details about its Origin and Present use.
I definitely do not need to tell you where these panels have derived their name from. The hexagonal shape of the honey comb has long been an object of admiration and wonder. The building of a honeycomb has been termed as one of the most intriguing engineering and construction techniques. This gave birth to the idea of mimicking this technique for the use of humankind. The early use of a honeycomb panel was in the aerospace industry and is still widely in use therein. A honey comb structure is made by layering a honeycomb core (structure made of hexagonal and columnar cells) between two thin face sheets that ensures strength in tension. This technique helps create a minimal weight product with a higher strength to weight ratio. This technology has been in use since the 1950’s for manufacturing aircrafts and rockets. However, in the past few years this technology has made inroads in other fields as well. One such area is our houses and offices.
Today, because of its lightweight and structural and dimensionally stable qualities, we find these honey comb panels in use every where around us. Honeycomb stone panels, Honeycomb furniture, Honeycomb table tops, Honeycomb Marble panels, Honeycomb Granite panels, Honeycomb fibreglass panels and Honeycomb aluminium panels are commonly used for exterior and interior walls, floors, ceilings etc. and for making table tops, furniture tops, kitchen tops and vanity tops. The flexibility offered by these panels makes it easy to mould them into different shapes and sizes without losing their basic properties of being lightweight and durable. These stone panel products are easy to install and can easily be put up by yourself or an ordinary mason.
From what we have seen so far, we can confidently say that Honeycomb panels have been one of the most valuable inventions in Bio mimicry. Its usage and benefits cannot be overemphasized as is seen by the wide range of applications it has found in all facets of our lives. You can have these panels at your home or office too. Have a look at this link http://www.pacificbedrock.com/. They house various types of honeycomb panels which you can order. If you do not find what you are looking for - get them custom made. Most providers will be able to help you with proper advice and guidance to help you make best use of this technology which according to me is one of the best mimics of nature.
