An insulated panel has become a common feature on major industrial buildings. With cost efficiency prioritised on these projects, earlier panels embraced utilitarian design, typically coloured a shade of grey, blue and offwhite with a trapezoidal and microrib profiles.
Today, the modern insulated panel offers far great design freedom. These panels are available in a diverse range of color options, coatings, profiles, panel dimensions and also facilitate the unusual geometries from jutting angular designs, to sweeping curves.
This outstanding aesthetic choice, in combination with their fast-track installation and High-performance building envelope technology, you can easily see many examples of insulated panels on various building types, including cultural buildings, schools, factories, hospitals, distribution centres, etc. The diverse range of modern roof and wall insulated panel designs reflects the acceptability of Insulated Panels between the various members of the project team, including architects, installers and building owners, etc. This process informs the active development of new innovations in insulated panel technology, ensuring they can support even the most challenging applications.
In addition to traditional trapezoidal and flat profiles, insulated wall panels are now available in a variety of profiles, from subtle micro ribs, flowing waves, adding depth, texture and interest to the outer walls of any building. The panels are typically installed with secret fixings and complimentary fabrications, such as pre-formed corners and flashings, which maintain seamless continuity across the building facade.
The insulated panels are now available in a variety of color matched coatings. The options range from bold solid color, to modern metallics and even textured finishes, and can be easily integrated on the same facade to create smooth color gradients or striking contrasts. The latest advances in coating technology allow them to provide enhanced resistance to corrosion also and keeping them looking their best across their lifetime without the need for special maintenance.
Designers also have considerable freedom to vary the size, dimensions and orientation of insulated panels. These can be easily installed in either horizontal or vertical orientations in lengths from less than two meters up to 12 meters or more. Different sizes can be integrated within the same facade to create a dynamic pattern.
The designs with the insulated panels can be seamlessly integrated with the wall and roof accessories like daylight and wall light systems. These can be specified in a range of colors, adding attractive features to the outer facade whilst flooding internal spaces with natural light.
