Insulated metal sandwich panels for walls, ceilings and roofings
Composite insulated metal sandwich panels are used by the construction sector as elements of exterior cladding, environments partitioning, for the rise of load-bearing walls, and covering surfaces of a wide range of industrial, commercial, and residential buildings in the world. For more than 50 years the composite panels have offered engineers and architects new possibilities for planning, design, and cost management for new buildings construction and refurbishment, as they have proven to be a profitable, effective and versatile solution.
Composite panels´ use has increased due to the need of the construction industry of a product with a specific relatively light weight, that also offers high values of thermal insulation and ease in installation.
Thermal insulation feature is satisfied thanks to the technical development of polyurethane (PUR) and polyisocyanurate (PIR) foams. The ease during installation is achieved with the simplicity of assembly in the load-bearing structure. This feature has turned out the main factor of the popularity of this product, since construction times have been reduced significantly compared to traditional methods, with consequent savings in labor costs.
Over the years, the structure of composite or sandwich type panels has always been based on the same configuration.
Starting from two thin surfaces with high mechanical properties, which enclose a material relatively light, with an appropriate rigid as provides the insulation conditions.
METECNO panels has galvanized steel sheets and an insulating core made of high-density polyurethane foam or high-density polyisocyanurate. This panel configuration has a special combination of properties that makes it ideal for use in facades, wall and roofings.
