As the world faces unprecedented and ongoing challenges in terms of climate change, the economy, and pandemic response, metal building innovations are a bright spot. In fact, in the field of architecture, metal walls and roofing offer sustainable, flexible, maximum-performance solutions that not only address these issues, but make the design process fresh and exciting—from color palettes to ease of installation. Metal walls composed of metal composite material (MCM), insulated metal panels (IMPs) and single skin metal panels offer durable and stunning architectural facades in many shapes and finishes. When it comes to low-slope metal, steep slope metal, and IMP roofing and components, the designs, energy savings and durability attributes are innumerable.
