Metl-Span architectural panels have thicker gauge facings that provide a better flat, visual appearance than the thinner gauges used for profiled, commercial/industrial panels, and offer longer spans and more impact resistance. Architectural panels are usually flat, but are also available in some profiles such as striated or light mesa (planked). Quite often, they are used for horizontal applications, where panel lengths can be sized to line up with window mullions. Standard widths provide the most cost economy, but custom widths allow the designer the freedom to line up horizontal reveals with window heads and sills, providing a clean, orderly appearance.
Metl-Span commercial and industrial panels serve as walls, ceilings and roofs for commercial and industrial buildings, in new and retrofit construction. Metl-Span insulated metal panels can be easily adapted to pre-engineered metal building designs for almost any end-use as walls and roofs, saving material and labor costs. Other end applications include schools, manufacturing facilities, distribution warehouses, equipment maintenance buildings, mechanical penthouses, kiosks, equipment screens, aircraft hangars, prison units and office buildings.
Metl-Span cold storage panels function as walls, ceilings and roofs for cooler, freezer and food processing buildings, in new and retrofit construction. In addition, Metl-Span panels are ideal for dry goods warehouses and other controlled environment buildings where temperature control and insulation values are critical.
ThermalSafe® combines advanced panel design with Metl-Span's sophisticated manufacturing expertise to create a composite panel that achieves one, two and three hour fire resistance ratings under the most demanding conditions. In addition to its fire resistant characteristics, the panel provides good thermal performance and protection from the elements. The unique LockGuard® interlocking side joint further enhances the fire resistant performance of the panel with its tongue and groove engagement of the mineral wool core.
