Insulated Metal Panels are manufactured in a variety of styles and sizes depending on application. Steel is the predominant facing material, providing economy with excellent durability. The facings provide aesthetic appeal, act as control layers, protect the foam core from damage and ensure long term thermal performance, lower construction, operating and maintenance costs throughout the life span of the facility.

  • Analyze the factors affecting panel spans, and the relationship of these factors to structural supports
  • Explore how IMPs provide all necessary air, water, vapor and thermal control layers through a single component
  • Compare the availability of IMP various paint, corrosion, panel and weathertight warranties for IMPs
