FM Approved Class 1 with no height restrictions.

Superior Insulating Value across the entire wall and roof area is assured with Metl-Span panels. The advanced polyurethane core provides enhanced insulation values that significantly lowers heating and cooling costs.

One-Piece Construction process assures rapid completion of the wall and roof system. Factory fabricated composite panels are attached directly to the supporting structure and multiple steps to construct the insulated wall and roof are eliminated. Faster building completion means reduced construction and interim financing costs.

Lightweight yet Structurally Strong panels weigh only 2 ½ to 3 ½ pounds per square foot, but are structurally strong enough for long spans that can significantly reduce costs for frame support.

Impermeable Faces & Built-in Thermal Breaks ensure the highest insulating values are maintained for the life of the building. Panels are manufactured with impermeable faces and when installed the insulation is completely encapsulated by metal trim that creates an impermeable membrane on all sides of the panel. The aged “R” values are comparable to the initial “R” values many years after the buildings original completion. Assured thermal values mean lower heating and cooling costs.

Class 1 Polyurethane Foam meets the requirements of the major model building codes for many types of construction. Unlike panels with expanded polystyrene cores they will not produce a self-propagating fire. Local building codes may require automatic fire suppression systems for most installations.

Concealed Attachment with clips and fasteners at the side joint of the panel
offers a clean high profile appearance. No more barn like metal building looks.

Metl-Span are Lightweight, yet very strong and durable attributing to reduced costs for erection and structural support.

Allowable Uniform Loads for Panels with 26 Gage Facings:

7.2 Insul-Rib Allowable Uniform Loads for panels with 26 gage facings

  • Panel Thickness Includes Rib Height
    Notes:

    1. Allowable positive load is the lowest value of the panel bending and shear strength or deflection limit.
    2. Allowable suction load is the lowest value of the panel bending and shear strength, deflection limited and connection strength for each fastener pattern.  The numbers have been reduced to reflect the lowest value.
    3. Loads based on panel stress, deflection and connection design criteria are derived from ASTM E-72 testing.
    4. Allowable loads are calculated with a factor of safety of 2.5 for bending, 3.0 for shear and 2.0 for connection.
    5. Pattern FP1 is based on clip with (2) 1/4″-14 Tek III’s in minimum 14 gage steel.
    6. Pattern FP11 is based on five (7.2″ on center, low cell of product), 1/4-14″ Tek III’s with 5/8″ neoprene bonded washer in minmum 14 gage steel.
    7. The structural capacity of the girs are not considered and must be examined independently.
