Insulated roof panels or sandwich panel roofing is a revolutionary structural insulated panel solution that combines roof, ceiling, and insulation (or inner sheet, outer sheet and insulation core) all-in-one, making it an extremely weather tight and thermally efficient solution.
Insulated Panel roofing is not only highly durable and resistant to Australia’s harsh weather conditions, but the panels also have high insulation R values (indicative of how well the product resists heat flow) and are made from non-combustible steel, which prevents the spread of fire. This is a must if you’re in an area prone to wildfires.
Another great benefit of insulated roofing is that it’s quicker to install than traditional roofing because there is no need for additional structural support, purlins, beams, trusses, mesh, sarking, insulation, and plasterboard. And with more spanning capabilities that require less structural support, insulated panel roofing minimizes the infrastructure required to support the roof, making for a streamlined yet strong structure that is more cost effective than other solutions.
Available in a range of designs, custom modular widths, finishes, and colours, insulated panel roofing allow for great design flexibility to customize your roof to suit site specific aesthetic requirements.
When calculating the sizes, the thickness of the insulation must also be considered based on the properties of your building.
Quality is key, however. Ensure that you invest insulated metal panels that will guarantee the performance of your roof and maximise the return on your investment.
Types of insulated panel roofing
Sandwich panel roofing can be installed on a wall or roof and the types vary according to their sound insulating performance, their response to fire and weight as well as the thermal insulating material used as the core: which include
- Expanded polystyrene (EPS) or rigid cellular plastic
- mineral wool and
- polyurethane (PIR) or polyisocyanurate which is thermoset plastic produced as a foam
The lifespan of insulated panel roofing
In addition, the load carrying capacities must be calculated correctly based on the load they will carry, the design, technical specification of product components, and the environmental conditions all impact the longevity of the panels. Checking, cleaning, and maintaining insulated panel roofing at least once a year will contribute to its lifespan.
Roof Designs are suited to free standing, fly over, gable, attached skillion and two storey builds. Whether it be a freestanding structure, or connected to existing, we will be able to tailor a solution to suit your needs. Allow us to make your insulated panel structure a reality.
If Insulated panel costs are higher than your budget, our custom shade solutions include a standard metal roof option, outdoor awnings, commercial awnings, heavy duty sails and more. We cover commercial, industrial, and residential shade solutions from Brisbane to Australia wide and New Zealand.
