Innovative Ways to Use Metal Insulated Panels in Building Design

Saying Insulated Metal Panels (IMPs) have come a long way since their origin a few decades ago is an understatement. A long way from the plain industrial style panels, IMPs today abound in an array of aesthetic options, surpass performance expectations, and far exceed the capabilities of traditional building materials. How can building designers utilize IMPs in innovative ways for their project? Let’s see!

IMPs Today

While IMPs used to be reserved for industrial buildings or storage facilities, today IMPs can be found in residential and commercial applications. IMPs possess a diverse assortment of product offerings that are both lightweight and architecturally pleasing. Available in a nearly limitless range of colors, profiles and styles that can suit nearly any building design. Not only that, but they can do so while helping meet ever-more stringent building and energy codes with their industry-best thermal performance. Today you can find products that offer bold styles unique to IMPs or, if you prefer, even mimic the look of nearly any other construction material – such as wood or stucco. 

Innovative Building Design With IMPs

IMPs can be used as interior or exterior cladding. Think textured walls and perfectly sealed and insulated walls. They can even create shapes, curves, and lines that are unheard of when using traditional building materials. IMPs can also be used to create energy efficient roofs or can even be used as flooring! In any of these applications, the panels can be used as the entire material or as an accent – creating a focal point on the structure.

The Possibilities Are Limitless

There really is no limit to the possibilities when it comes to designing buildings with modern insulated metal wall panels. Architects can and should be bold and inventive in their designs. The IMP industry’s innovative and diverse line-up of products will meet the challenge. Interested in discussing your options with us?
