Corrugated Metal Panels

Corrugated siding is an outer building cover made up of corrugated or ridged sheets of metal, fiberglass or vinyl attached in either horizontal or vertical patterns. Siding is called corrugated when it has been pressed or produced in the factory in a hill-and-valley pattern, with a half-inch (1.27 cm) depth to each valley. The most common corrugated siding is made of galvanized steel. The corrugations provide strength to the sheets of material, and allow them to be fastened to a framework with studs or cross members set much further apart than normal non-corrugated material. The corrugations in corrugated siding give flat material the rigidity required to withstand denting and bulging.

Insulated Wall Panels

An insulated metal panel (IMP) is composed of an insulated core material in place between two metal pre-coated skins utilizing an interlocking joint for a weather-tight system with a high R-value and superior airtightness. IMPs have the highest insulating value per inch of all wall insulating products. As a result, they can significantly lower a building’s energy costs and overall operating costs. Insulated metal panels are also quick and easy to install. For example, while tilt-up, precast or block often require cranes and other equipment to be set in place, lightweight IMPs can often be installed with forklifts or a simple pulley system, lowering construction costs for the owner. They can be installed vertically or horizontally, and come in a variety of standard colours and finishes, from flat to striated and planked.
