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.

  • Based on CF-36 and CF-42 panel with 26 ga. Santa Fe exterior & 26 ga. Light Mesa interior faces (min Fy=33 ksi).
  • For pattern FP1, CF panel clips are fastened to minimum 14 gage steel with (2) 1/4″-14 SDS Tek 3 at interior supports and (1) 1/4″-14 SDS Tek 3 at end supports.  For 12 gage or thicker steel, #12-24 SDS or 1/4″-14 SDS Tek 5′s may be used.  In lieu of self-drilling screws, self-tapping screws may be used.
  • Fastening patterns FP2, FP3, FP4 and FP5, includes CF panel clip attachment plus 1, 2, 3 or 4 Fabloks, repsectively, at supports per panel width.  Fab-lok spacing is 10.5″ OC from female edge of panel seam.
  • The through fasteners (FP9) are as follows:  #12-24 SDS in min 12 ga. steel; or #1/4-14 SDS in min 12 ga. steel; or #1/4-14 STS in min 14 ga. steel.  4 Fasteners with 5/8″ neoprene bonded washers per panel width @ max 8.4″ OC.
  • The through fasteners (FP10) are as follows:  #12-24 SDS in min 12 ga. steel ; or #1/4-14 SDS in min 12 ga. steel; or #1/4-14 STS in min 14 ga. steel.  5 Fasteners with 5/8″ neoprene bonded washers per panel width @ max 8.4″ OC.
  • Allowable suction load is the lowest value of panel bending strength, shear strength, deflection limit and connection strength for each fastening pattern.
  • Allowable loads based on panel stress and deflection design criteria are derived from ASTM E72 structural testing and calculated with factor of safety of 2.5 for bending stress, 3.0 for shear stresses and deflection limitation of L/180.
  • The panel connection strength was determined from ASTM E1592 testing and the allowable loads are calculated with factor of safety of 2.
  • The structural capacity of the girts are not considered and must be examined independently.
  • Consult Metl-Span for recommendations on panel profile and gage suitable for thermal stresses.
