Metal Building Insulation Options
The Simple Saver System is designed to create the average depth space needed for the full specified insulation thickness plus deflection and deliver the maximum possible insulation performance. Conductive structural members penetrating through the insulation require thermal breaks and may reduce overall performance. Properly sealed ceiling and wall systems prevent air infiltration and isolate the conductive steel structure from the conditioned space air. The Simple Saver System provides both low U-values and low emissivity values, stopping over 90% of all three types of heat transfer.
Engineered Strength for Safety
The Simple Saver roof liner system is engineered to be strong and durable for job site safety, is OSHA Compliant and a patented fall arrest system. The super strong liner system withstands the rigors of installation and provides workers beneath with protection from falling objects. The liner system then permanently supports the insulation. This limits the liability of owners, designers and contractors (Standard 29 CFR Definitions–1926.751 "Controlling Contractor"). The fall protection benefits are free, but only with the legitimate, patented Simple Saver System (Patent # 5901518).
Class A Fire Safety Rating
The vapor retarder fabric liner of the standard Simple Saver System is self-extinguishing as it complies with: ASTM 1136, Types I through VI; NFPA 701 Large Scale; flame spread of 25 or less per ASTM E-84 (equivalent to NFPA 255, ANSI 2.5 or UL/ULC 723). Special order or modified products may be tested upon order by the purchaser for the costs of the tests.
Provides excellent yet inexpensive acoustic finishes where conventional suspended ceilings are not appropriate or not in the budget. Standard system has 75% sound absorption (NRC 0.75). This superb by-product of the Simple Saver System comes free with the system. Excellent for gymnasiums, arenas, houses of worship, manufacturing, entertainment spaces and multipurpose rooms. Some minor wrinkles may be visible due to the large pieces of support fabric used.
Finishes and Decorates
The Simple Saver System's free, bright white appearance is often used as an exposed interior finish in buildings. Purlins and girts are hidden, eliminating the cost to paint them. Various colors and strap patterns may be specified to obtain unique aesthetic appearances. The ceiling and wall surfaces are washable and easy to maintain.
The bright white, light reflective surface enhances efficiency of the lighting system, eliminating about 30% of the number of light fixtures. Light reflectance tests of up to 85% are achieved. Savings of lighting equipment, wiring and electricity result in substantial dollar savings for the building owner. Low ultraviolet producing light sources or UV filtered lenses are necessary to prevent UV degradation and obtain optimum service life.
Helps Prevent Condensation
The high strength Simple Saver fabric liner isolates the cold conductive purlin and girt surfaces from the inside conditioned air, reducing the exposed conductive purlin and girt surface areas from about 50% of the roof and wall areas to a fraction of 1%. Water vapor transmission rate is = 0.02 grains per hour/sq. ft. for the standard fabric liner. Factory-made, triple extrusion welded seams are for safety and uniquely pressure resistant to assure the very low vapor permeance and vapor retarder integrity as opposed to thousands of staple holes or hidden, unsealed lap joints typical with laminated insulation.
Insulated Roof and Wall Panels
CFR Insulated Metal Roof Panel
Meti-Span CFR is an insulated metal standing seam roof panel, and is the foremost innovation in all-in-one composite panel design, combining durable interior and exterior faces with Metl-Span's unmatched polyurethane core. The CFR root panel provides exceptional benefits including a standing seam exterior face for unsurpassed weathertight performance, and panel widths contributing to installation savings because there are fewer side joints to seal.
CFR roof panels are installed completely from the top side with concealed clips and fasteners placed in the side joint. Cold Storage applications may require alternate methods of attachment. Factory cut panel ends, factory notching and factory swaged ends eliminate critical and extensive field reworking and reduce erection costs. Factory installed backer plates at the endlaps also eliminate pre-drilling for special fasteners and fastener tools.
Tuff Wall Insulated Metal Wall Panel
Metl-SPan's Tuff Wall is an exceptionally attractive stucco-like insulated metal wall panel Mat exhibits the natural beauty that many designers and owners prefer. The exterior stucco-like surface of the panel is a hard aggregated fiber reinforced polymer coating created with the factory applied Tuff Cott finish system. Tuff Cote finish offers an extremely durable impact and abrasion resistant coating that withstands severe weather conditions.
Unlike field-applied finishes that are vulnerable to damp or cold weather during installation, fun Wall panels can be erected in virtually any weather condition. The interior face of the Tuff Wall panel is finished with an attractive Mesa profile and painted with a white polyester coating.
7.2 Insul-Rib Insulated Metal Wall Panel
The 7.2 Insul-Rib insulated metal wall panel combines a traditional 7.2 rib panel design with a polyurethane fonts core.
For the first time, this widely used profile is now available with exceptional insulating properties in various thicknesses.
Tuff-Cast Insulated Metal Wall Panel
Metl-Span's new Tuff-Cast is an exceptionally attractive Insulated metal wall panel with the look of finished precast concrete. The exterior surface of the panel is a hard aggregated fiber reinforced polymer coating created with the factory applied Tuff-Cote finish system. Tuff-Cote finish offers an extremely durable impact and abrasion resistant coating that withstands severe weather conditions.
Unlike field-applied finishes that are vulnerable to damp or cold weather during installation, Tuff-Cast panels can be erected in virtually any weather condition. The interior face ot the Tuff-Cast panel is finished with an attractive Mesa profile and painted with a white polyester coating.
CF Architectural/Horizontal Insulated Metal Wall Panel
The Metl-Span CF Architectural/Horizontal insulated metal wall panel is ideal for high profile horizontal applications. Designed to install with concealed clips and fasteners in the side joint CF Architectural/Horizontal wall panels provide maximum design flexibility and a beautiful high-tech appearance. The horizontal interlocking joint can be varied for visual impact. It may be ordered flush or with a ⅜" deep reveal of ¼", ½", ¾", 1", 1½", 2", 2 ½", or 3" width.
The panel ends are folded to eliminate the need for metal trim at the vertical butt joint. The joint is sealed with a black dry gasket to create a shadowline effect that can be emulated in the horizontal reveal.
Architectural Insulated Metal Wall Panel
The Metl-Span Architectural insulated metal wall panel is ideal for high profile architectural applications. The panels are designed to be installed vertically or horizontally with concealed clips and fasteners in the side joint.
Architectural wall panels provide a beautiful flush appearance. Available design features include custom widths and preformed and radius corners.
