Insulated metal panels are the all-in-one building material taking the construction industry by storm. Consistently seeing double-digit sales growth year after year for the last decade, there’s a reason IMPs are being used more often in commercial and residential construction. In this article, we’ll take a deeper look at what makes IMPs the future of building construction.
Superior Strength and Protection
Insulated metal panels provide superior protection for your home, building, or climate controlled facility. They can withstand weather that other materials buckle under, such as hurricane force winds, hail, and even fire. Insulated metal panels also provide unmatched mechanical stability. They experience little fluctuation when subjected to varying temperatures, possess the ability to reflect sunlight, and can keep out pollution that can make its way through other porous building materials.
Insulated Metal Panels Are Easy And Versatile
IMPs are designed for efficient installation, which leads to a lower cost of construction. This is a result of both their ease to move as well as the reduced need for as much structural support throughout the building. On the exterior, they can replace traditionally heavy wall cladding, such as concrete or masonry products. Panels could even be used to create a roof decking or smaller details such as trims. On the interior, metal panels can replace conventional materials such as wood or drywall.
IMPs Are Environmentally Friendly
IMPs are an obvious solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. They are created from recycled materials, and can be recycled again at the end of their shelf life. Reducing the carbon footprint of production and the amount of materials that end up in landfills.
IMPs Contribute To Lower Energy Costs
If installed correctly, metal panels can even help your building consume energy more efficiently than traditional building materials. The inbuilt insulation can reflect the sun’s heat away from the home while also reducing air infiltration. Meaning a cooler building in the summer, and a warmer building in the winter.
There Are Endless Aesthetic Options
Forget the gray buildings of the past. The future is vibrant and colorful thanks to IMPs. Insulated metal panels come in all sorts of designs – whether replicating the look of wood, creating patterned or textured accent walls, or offering a sleek and elegant facade. Shapes slopes and curves that would be impossible with traditional building materials are not outside the realm of possibility.
