Architectural Panels Installer That Doesn’t Compromise
Combining aesthetics and durability, metal has grown to become a prominent and preferred roof and wall material for commercial and architectural applications. Compared to other commonly used materials, metal roof system and wall system products are affordable, versatile and extremely effective in handling high wind uplift conditions.
Aesthetically, you can’t go wrong with metal. Structural insulated panels (SIP) offer endless options in color, building design, and texture. And finish enhancing the visual appeal of most any commercial construction project.
Architectural insulated metal panel (IMP) systems help you reimagine metal with one of the industry’s best combinations of aesthetics, performance, sustainability, and value.
The insulated wall panels provide outstanding thermal efficiency and moisture control. Lowering building materials and labor initial construction cost while improving energy efficiency over the life of the building envelope.
We install perfected architectural insulated metal panel systems, offering a wide range of panel lengths, widths, and thickness for the ultimate in design flexibility. The panels have factored insulation foam core, minimizing insulation gaps.
Through this process, the insulated wall panels improve thermal performance. Address air infiltration and offer superior defense against water intrusion – all while providing tremendous design flexibility.
Depending on the job complexity and size. IMPs can be installed at a rate of up to 5,000 square feet per shift on an industrial project. And up to 1,100 square feet per shift by a four-man crew on an architectural project.
To prevent structural and aesthetic issues with the finished product, framing needs to be within the IMP manufacturers’ design criteria. Metal building girts are often locked into place. To ensure girts are level until the IMPs are installed, at which point the blocking can be removed.
Because factory insulated metal panels are strong and rigid. The structure they attach to must be held to a closer tolerance than that required for some other systems. Excessive variation from the theoretical plane can subject IMPs to undue stress, resulting in aesthetic changes or diminished load capacity.
The alignment of supports is especially important with the most commonly used back seal. Or liner-side seal systems where the support alignment establishes the final alignment of the wall.
The structural framing should be properly designed to accept the erection and design loads as imposed by the wall panels. The location of the interior and/or exterior panel joint and perimeter seals should be properly specified for the project’s moisture a vapor control requirements.
Today, SIP panels come in the standard of width 24, 30, 36, and 42 inches. And 2,3,4 inch thick as do most buildings constructed throughout the United States.
Finally, our architectural insulated panel solutions fully integrate with an extensive line of innovative accessories for complete wall solutions. And one more important way to achieve optimum thermal performance and efficiency. We install the most innovative panels from Kingspan.
