Protect your home, industrial plant, or commercial building with fire-resistant construction. Insulated Metal Panels offer extra protection and meet the strictest of fire codes. Besides offering additional protection and security, you can choose a wide variety of construction options and styles. IMPs can be used for industrial, commercial, and post-frame buildings.

Unlike other types of more combustible materials like wood and some synthetic materials, metal resists fire. Insulated Metal Panels (IMPs) are often considered Class A, meaning that they offer the highest level of protection against fire. Whether a fire caused by a manmade mistake, neighboring fire, or natural disaster, your IMPs will protect your assets and personnel from the flames.
Because IMPs are lightweight and have fewer components, it is much simpler to install them. Installation can be quicker, saving on labor costs. Quick installation also means reduced costs due to human error or construction accidents. The IMPs greatly lengthen the lifespan of any building, protecting it from fire, water damage, and moisture.
Testing and Energy Efficiency
IMPs go through rigorous testing to meet the high fire rating standards. The IMPs should be tested to see if they meet required building codes in the area. The foam core should have a Smoke Developed rating of 450. They might be sent to a laboratory-like the Underwriters Laboratories (UL). The manufacturer will send a full-size product sample to the labs. Check with your manufacturer to see if the IMP is up to standard. They offer excellent R-value of up to R-8.515 and 7.08 per inch and also provide improved energy efficiency. Most IMPs meet the International Energy Conservation Code.
Metal construction is ideal for a variety of applications commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential. Whether you are building a manufacturing plant, an architectural building, a school, or a home, IMPs will help conserve energy and protect from fire.
