EMI shielded ventilation panels for ventilation and heating
Honeycomb vents are used to shield openings for ventilation or acoustic/visual contact. We can make these vents according to your drawing within a few days, or you can use our standard range from stock.
We can supply Honeycomb vents with frames, pre-drilled with fasteners or with flow-drilled thread holes. The standard material is aluminium which can be given a nickel finish (or any other finish you choose).
If high shielding levels are required, the use of cross-cell honeycombs is recommended. These are constructed from multiple sections of 6.35 mm or 12.7 mm or 26.3 mm thick honeycombs within a single frame. The shielding performance will improve as air flow is decreased, but not eliminated.
For military applications we make a heavy hot-dip galvanised mild-steel version; please contact us for more information.
Honeycombs are also frequently used as flow straighteners to create a laminar flow.
Approximately 95% of the honeycomb vents we produce are made to customer specifications.

Our Honeycomb ventilation panels are usually custom made for our client. However, some common dimensions are in stock. In the standard dimensions table below some common types of Honeycomb ventilation panels are specified to illustrate the required information. Hole diameter P is standard 3.5mm, with other dimensions possible on request. Also available with screw apertures or inserts.
|Outer dimensions||Mounting holes horizontal||Mounting holes vertical|
Our 9500 series framed Honeycomb ventilation panels are generally supplied with a 6800 series Amucor gasket. This is a EMC gasket with an aluminum alloy. Suitable for most applications. However, due to galvanic corrosion for some applications, the Honeycombs can also be supplied with a 1200 series Metal knit gasket.
