These days, construction standards are higher than ever. Great building projects should now excel not only in terms of beautiful aesthetics and functional design, but also in sustainability and resilience.
To achieve this level of excellence, you need to choose building materials that directly contribute to this goal. This is what makes EcoSteel’s architectural insulated metal panels a favorite choice among those who are seeking durable, energy efficient, and eco-friendly products for their new construction projects.
Sustainable Construction & Performance
EcoSteel’s architectural insulated metal panels can improve your project’s sustainability before they’re even installed. This is because the materials used to construct them are often largely recycled. Prefabricated steel, for example, is currently composed of up to 85% recycled material. Therefore, you can rest assured that you’re making a responsible choice with sustainably sourced insulated metal panels.
When it comes to energy performance, our panels stand out once again. Exceeding California’s strict energy requirements, they achieve maximized insulation levels of R49 while streamlining the installation process. Additionally, they are approved for LEED and other sustainability standards. All of this will allow you to enjoy the benefits of green credits on top of reduced utility bills.
Our Insulated Standing Seam Roof Panels, which are compatible with s-clip systems for attaching solar panels, eliminate the need for invasive installation techniques that cost extra effort, money, and time.
Strength & Resilience
For a material to be resilient, it must be able to withstand instances of extreme strain without compromising a building’s structural integrity, safety, or function. In this respect, our architectural insulated metal panels made from prefabricated steel offer outstanding performance.
Steel’s ductility gives it the flexibility needed to withstand strain. The ductility allows the steel to redistribute forces, preventing any one area from bearing too heavy of a load. In extreme conditions caused by hurricanes, earthquakes, or even man-made factors, steel can hold up better than many other materials.
Fire-safety is one particular area where steel panels excel. By replacing traditional, highly-combustible materials, fire resistant steel can minimize opportunities for fires to start and to spread. EcoSteel panels expand on this safety with a fire-resistant shell for added protection.
Overall, insulated metal panels are simply stronger and more durable than many traditional building materials. They can survive disasters with little to no damage, and even resist everyday wear and tear. Steel panels are immune from rotting, warping, and cracking. They’re also safe from termites and other pests, and are not degraded by humidity.
