Metl-Span introduces ThermalSafe with a striated exterior profile

October 02, 2019

LEWISVILLE, Texas – Metl-Span's proven ThermalSafe® insulated metal panel is now available with a Striated exterior profile, in addition to the already existing Ultra-Light Mesa and Santa Fe exterior options. “The demand for more fire-resistant options led us to produce ThermalSafe with a striated exterior profile,” says Jennifer Franz, Metl-Span product manager. “Striations offer an aesthetic customers are familiar with and asking for.”

Fire-resistant ThermalSafe is equipped with a LockGuard interlocking side joint, achieving one-, two- or three-hour fire resistance rating for walls and 1-1/2 hours for ceilings. The insulated metal panel features a core made from non-combustible structural and non-toxic mineral wool boards processed to maximize compressive strength. The core insulating properties are 3.61 “R” per inch. ThermalSafe panels are 42 inches wide and available in thicknesses of 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 inches. Panels have been extensively tested to meet the fire standard requirements of FM4880 and the structural requirements of FM4881.
