Kingspan Insulated Metal Panels

Insulated metal panels not only look great, but also provide unmatched R-values and energy efficiency. 

Insulated metal panels (IMPs) are exterior wall and roof panels with steel skins and an insulating foam core. Insulated metal panels are known for their superior thermal properties, design flexibility and fast installation time - in addition to their great looks.  Very popular in European markets; architects from North America are beginning to discover why IMPs are a great choice for energy-effecient and cost-effective office buildings, stadiums, arenas, airports and more.  Insulated metal panels also usually have lower embodied carbon than other building materials.

Insulated metal panels are weather-tight and provide a strong thermal and moisture barrier.  Kingspan's engineered panel joints provide protection from wind, rain and moisture and allow aesthetic integration of a multitude of profile types.

Kingspan's insulated metal panels are available in a wide array of textures and finishes to match any project.

Kingspan's QuadCore® insulation provides best-in-class R-value, with 11 percent better thermal performance than a traditional PIR insulation core and up to 60 percent improvement over a traditional PUR insulation core.

Insulated Panel FAQ

insulated metal panels
Insulated metal panels are exterior roof and wall panels that are comprised of two pieces of steel skin with insulation foam in the middle. 

The insulated foam core can range from a variety of material, but the most common options are PUR (polyurethane), PIR (polyisocyanurate), and QuadCore® (self-blended hybrid insulation core).
The R-value of insulated metal panels depend entirely on the insulated foam core used.  PUR is typically 5-7.1 per inch, while PIR is typically in the 7-7.2 per inch range.  The insulation core with one of the highest R-values is QuadCore®, with an R-value of 8.0 per inch.

Because of this, most insulated metal panels have an R-value of R-5 to R-64, with panels ranging from 1 inch thick to 8 inches thick.  With Kingspan's QuadCore®, R-values can reach as high as R-72.

Kingspan insulated panels manufactured in North America use either PIR or QuadCore® insulation foam, with R-values starting at 7.2 per inch for PIR and at 8.0 per inch for QuadCore®. These thermal resistance R-values are quoted at 75°F.
For cold storage applications, we offer insulated panels with R-values of up to 9.0 per inch, as measured at 35°F.
An 8" KS Shadowline Interior panel can span up to 50 feet without a mid-span support, which can be used in some cases where temperature differential limit other panel options.
Insulated metal panels can be as thin as 1 inch, or as thick as 8 inches for cold storage wall panels.  Most IMPs for commercial buildings are in the 1 inch - 6 inch range.  Our KS Series of commercial wall panels ranges in thickness size from 2 inches to 6 inches. Our KS Shadowline Interior panel, a cold storage product, is available in multiple thickness from 2 inches to 8 inches.
Commercial insulated metal panels are usually 24 inches to 42 inches in width, while cold storage panels are usually 45 3/8" wide.  The exact width will depend on specific product specifications.
The exact price depends on specific product used, application and building size.

Insulated metal panels are a cost-effective solution compared to other building materials.  The benefit of IMPs is the short install time due to less trades being needed onsite.  As a result, insulated metal panels can be installed in up to half the time of a traditional multi-part built-up system, saving cost in construction time.  IMPs can also save on long-term energy costs due to the increased R-values.

As a whole, insulated metal panels are a less-expensive alternative to building material such as concrete.
All Kingspan panels manufactured in North America have passed FM 4880 and NFPA 285, industry standards for fire testing.  All QuadCore® panels are GREENGUARD Gold certified, free of banned list material and earn a Red List Free classification.
