Compression, impact, flexure and permeability issues in traditional materials can be solved with SPS Technology’s transformational composite product, SPS (Sandwich Plate System).

Protecting with inherent strength and impact resistance
Highly impact resistant, SPS can withstand extreme loads and absorb impact energy efficiently without cracking, spalling, separation or rupturing. SPS panels are fundamentally lightweight and slender in design and it was quickly learnt that compression, impact, flexure and permeability issues in traditional materials can be solved with this simple transformational product. SPS is ideally suited to modular construction, allowing rapid roll-out of building units designed for a wide range of demanding requirements.
SPS Technology has a dedicated team of engineers and designers who listen to and understand clients’ needs before embarking on any project, and they have continued to investigate the inherent strength and impact resistance of this structural composite. With over twenty years of data to work from, we offer a collaborative research and development process that works directly with your team — from consultation through to advanced finite element analysis and full-scale testing where possible — to design solutions for your special applications.
SPS Technology now applies the same rigorous thinking to more scenarios where structures need fortifying, including:
- Ballistics protection
- Explosion protection rooms
- Flood, tornado and earthquake protection
- Emergency evacuation tunnels
- Clean rooms and data centres
- Dropped object protection
- Transformer casings
- Enhanced truck bodies
- Vibration damping
- Blast and impact protection, including crash decks and helipads
- Prefabricated modular units, including holding cells and safe rooms
If an SPS panel is compromised by a high-energy event, the deficient panel can be repaired, or removed and replaced, without affecting the surrounding structure. Damaged SPS is also fully recyclable.
