The Lattice Sandwich element is nearly identical to the Sandwich element, but there are some essential differences. These differences are characterized by the application of the element type. For instance, Lattice Sandwich Elements, cannot be stacked since they are limited to the maximum production height of 4,000 mm. Another consideration is the inner and the outer sheets should be supported over the entire length.
The application options are limited due to the connection method between the inner and the outer sheets, partucularly due to stainless steel torque anchors (hairpins).
