Metl-Span’s ThermalSafe® panel is an insulated metal panel made with non-combustible structural mineral wool core maximizing compressive strength with an exclusive double-tongue-and-groove interlocking side joint, LockGuard, further enhancing the fire resistant performance.
The ThermalSafe® insulated metal panel meets the required ratings required for today’s buildings through Intertek and UL fire approval, in both US and Canada. These panels are UL fire rated assemblies that achieve one-, two- or three-hour fire ratings for walls and 1.5 hours for ceilings. Fire resistant panels increase your building’s safety and protect materials, property and people from the spread of fires or from fires entering your building.
These fire rated panels have superior structural characteristics and span capabilities. In addition, the panel provides good thermal performance and protection from the elements that are perfect for industrial and high fire risk building applications.
