Metl-Span's new INNOVA3 is a 3" insulated metal panel and is ideal for high profile horizontal applications. INNOVA3 is specially designed to provide continuous insulation and meet ASHRAE 90.1 R-value requirements for steel framed walls. Unlike more traditional insulation products, Metl-Span's INNOVA3 insulated metal panels are placed outboard of the structural supports, creating a continuous barrier for maximum thermal efficiency with no compressed insulation or thermal bridges. A specially formed barrier side joint permits hidden application of the vapor sealant within recessed grooves. This protects the sealant from harmful effects of extreme weather and provides an impenetrable water and vapor seal.
