Metal wall panels are one of the most impactful revolutions in the use of architecture today. These panels bring a plethora of benefits, including longevity, weather resistance, and ease of installation. Metal wall panels also possess a high level of design freedom, coming in a variety of styles that bring their own individual benefits. Today we will take a look at some of the available types of metal wall panel systems.
Single Skin Metal
Single Skin Panels are one of the most popular systems in construction for a metal wall. These inexpensive panels come in a wide selection of profiles and design, including concealed or exposed fasteners. Concealed systems provide a clean, modern aesthetic. While the more inexpensive exposed system can be installed quicker. That being said, continuous insulation products must be added to both options to provide thermal protection.
Insulated Metal Panels
Insulated metal panels are known for providing exceptional insulation. These panels streamline the installation process and save money because their interior and exterior faces both act as a finished surface. Their foam cores are responsible for their insulating properties, and IMPs have been used in hospitals, airports, stadiums, and more!
Plate Panels are one of the most versatile, functional, and high performing systems available. These panels can be manipulated to create one of a kind buildings by manipulating curves, tapers, depths, and more. Plate panels are also highly impact resistant and durable compared to some of the other available systems.
Metal Faced Composite Panels
Metal faced composite panels feature two thin metal sheets attached to a thermoplastic core. While similar to IMPs, metal faced composite panels provide no thermal insulation. They are also not as resistant to impact as plate panels. However, they are a more cost effective solution to alternative panels.
All metal panels boast a wide range of applications and can achieve a number of aesthetic styles. The deciding factor for which panel system to choose will ultimately come down to your requirements and budget.
