Metal Wall Panel

What is a Metal Wall Panel?


Metal wall panels are one of the most economical options to clad the walls (both exterior and interior) of a building.

But while cost is important, it isn't everything. They are also highly durable, rarely require additional framing and are easy to replace or configure when building repairs or modifications are needed. Because of these factors,  metal panels win on functionality too.

So they deliver on value and performance, but what about aesthetics?   Never fear. With options like flush or ribbed panels and vertical or horizontal installs, they also perform a key role in the aesthetics of your new building. And when Kynar paints are used, metal panels can also be a key visual element by retaining that new building curb appeal for years.

Exposed fastened metal roof and wall panels represent the most economical option for commercial projects.  These systems consist of overlapping panels that are fastened directly to the roof deck or wall framing through the face of the metal. They are called “exposed” because the fastener head remains visible once installed. Exposed fastener panels are typically wider than standing seam panels, meaning that fewer panels (and less labor) will be needed to cover the roof or standing wall area.
