Metal Building Construction: the Coolstructures Advantage

Metal Building Construction: the Coolstructures Advantage

Coolstructures Metal Structural Insulated Panel construction and design enhance the thermal insulating performance while reducing costs of commercial or residential metal building construction, thus improving the quality, durability, environmental efficiency, and affordability:

  • Unique tongue in groove & spline systems make panels easy to install and ensure tight connections without thermal shorts;
  • Metal SIPs are manufactured in a variety of thicknesses between 2 inches and 12 inches, allowing achievement of very high R-values;
  • Coolstructures' panel accessories and attachment details ensure tight seams between any configuration or angle of walls, roof, and floors
  • Designs offer a variety of siding options including green homes construction
  • Coolstructres' continuous laminating line can manufacture panels in any desired length and to each jobs specific tolerance needs
  • Structural panels up to 60 feet long can accommodate high structures and/or broad spans
  • The high strength and structural integrity of metal SIPs minimize requirements of the interior steel grid, or even eliminate the grid entirely for smaller buildings;
  • The light weight of Coolstructures' Metal SIPs(much lighter than OSB SIPs) make them easy to ship, store and handle
  • Panels will not rot, mold, or decay
  • Panels can be manufactured with recycled content and is recyclable
  • No CFC's or HCFC's are utilized in the manufacturing processing, achieving either zero or very low ODP and GWP
  • Unlike OSB SIPs construction, Coolstructures' Metal SIPs are impervious to moisture and weather and do not require additional siding or vapor barriers
  • Coolstructures' panels can help achieve green building construction standards and attainment of LEEDs credits

Coolstructures Structurally Insulating Panels are designed to carry specified total loads, with maximum computed buckling stress not to exceed the maximum allowable buckling stress of the facings. The inside face of all panels must be cut at girt attachments to avoid compression buckling of the exterior skin. Wherever interior panel skins are extended to the outside (warm side) surface, a thermal break must be cut to avoid thermal conductivity. Block panel packages should be stored above ground to keep out of water and on a sloped surface to provide drainage.
