MetecnoSpan (PIR)

MetecnoSpan has a PIR Core. It is a lightweight panel system incorporating a trapezoidal external roofing product manufactured in 1000mm cover panels for roof systems with a minimum pitch of 3 degrees. Unlike single skin metal roof profiles, the strength of panel construction permits exceptional spans requiring fewer structural supports.

The composite sandwich panel construction also maintains insulation values, which aids in preventing condensation. MetecnoSpan is manufactured from New Zealand Steel coil and offers a choice of colours for the external skin. MetecnoSpan panels are available in a range of thicknesses as well as three different finishes for the internal face. MetecnoSpan can be used in either wall cladding or roof applications.

Durable and aesthetically attractive, MetecnoSpan wall and ceiling panels provide high thermal resistance, mechanical resistance and dimensional stability.

What is PIR?

The PIR core is manufactured by mixing two chemical streams with appropriate catalysts and a blowing agent, Pentane, which has zero ozone depleting potential. Polyisocyanurate (PIR) is rigid polyurethane foam that can be used in the manufacture of, either flat panel or profiled panel solutions, to meet a variety of applications where a light weight insulated fire resistant panel solution is required.
