PermaTherm's core competency is the application design and manufacture of Insulated Metal Panels and accessories for the construction of highly thermally-efficient building envelops - - primarily for the Cold Storage, Distribution, and Process industries, yet secondarily to a host of other Applications. To comprehend the potential benefits of a building constructed with PermaTherm insulated panels, consider an admittedly unrealistic scenario where all commercial buildings under 3 stories were constructed of PermaTherm Metal SIPs. The resulting increased energy efficiency is equivalent to the energy of all the petroleum currently being imported into the U.S.
Insulated Metal Panels fall under the general category of Structural Insulated Panels, which in addition include insulated panels with wood-based laminates as well as FRP skins. PermaTherm has chosen to reject wood-based products due to their higher weight, propensity for moisture and insect intrusion, fire concerns, and frankly life-cycle cost and sustainability. And OSB-SIPs MUST be subsequently faced with a veneer or siding, whether wood, aluminum, or brick - - whereas PermaTherm Insulated Metal Panels require no additional veneer - - while yet facilitating the application of any additional siding if the aesthetics warrant.
Our Metal SIPs eliminate the expense of constructing a building system with insulation as an add-on. Particularly ideal for any cold storage application (warehouses, refrigeration, or freezers and coolers - - whether food process, ice storage, or other). Buildings constructed with PermaTherm Insulated Metal Panels are a cost-effective investment for retail or commercial buildings and even green homes - - each with the possibility of LEED credits. Permatherm Insulated Metal Panels can also reduce construction costs by minimizing or possibly eliminating the need for an internal steel framework.
PermaTherm's Structural Insulating Metal Panels are a cost-effective, thermally efficient alternative to bare metal sheathing over a steel grid or to wood-based SIPs in any application. PermaTherm's modular sandwich panels use high R-value polystyrene cores with a variety of steel or FRP skins. Permatherm's Insulated Metal Panels facilitate low-cost construction of energy efficient steel buildings for commercial food, agriculture, pharmaceutical, retail, and zero-energy residential applications.
