Insulated metal panels are single component building envelope systems comprised of an insulation core (closed cell polyisocyanurate) bonded between two prefinished metal facings. Applied either vertically and/or horizontally for wall applications, insulated panels offer thermal and air tight performance. The impermeable metal facings provide a long lasting, durable weather barrier and the panel joinery is engineered to provide a thermal break and insulation to insulation contact. The typical panel joinery is comprised of a double interlock to ensure air tight performance, as well as a pressure equalization chamber to ensure correct drainage.
Thermal efficiency is provided through continuous insulation with no voids at joint locations. With the insulation outward of the building structure, thermal bridging is eliminated. Another important performance factor of insulated metal panels is weather-tightness. The metal facings provide impermeable spans of wall and roof while the joint remains weather-tight with double tongue and groove interlocks treated with vapor seals.
This metal panel system is in contrast to a field assembled wall system which can result in thermal bridging. A field assembled wall system comprised of compressible insulation between interior and exterior liner sheets can result in heat loss.
