Building products manufacturer Steadmans has introduced a 120mm thick option with a U-value of 0.17 into its AS35 range of insulated panels.
The new panel option is now the thickest in the AS35 range and expands the choice to eight variants of depth in which the panels can be specified. The options now range from a 40mm panel with a U-value of 0.50 up to the 0.17 U-value 120mm panel.
AS35 panels are formed with PIR insulation which is laid down between the weather sheet and liner on the production line. The PIR expands to a high performance insulation core and bonds to the steel facings forming a strong rigid panel. Steadmans AS35 panels are widely used to form roofs down to a four-degree pitch and walls.
Supported by a full range of matching ancillaries including gutters, flashings, rooflights and fixings, the AS35 system provides rapid coverage and swift completion of weatherproof envelopes, delivering high performance buildings.
Ian Hodgson, Steadmans sales and marketing director, said: The 120mm panel is now part of an AS35 range which offers excellent thermal performance, thanks largely to the PIR cores low conductivity, and a life expectancy of up to 40 years. The introduction of the new option underlines our ongoing commitment to product development and our focus on meeting the requirements of our expanding client base and the demands of the sector.
Steadmans insulated panels are available in a wide range of colours and finishes, including Dobel Nova and plastisol.
The companys AS35 and other cladding systems are suitable for a broad variety of building applications including commercial, industrial, leisure and retail structures.
