Steel clad buildings
At Steel Buildings we mainly supply Steel Clad Buildings. Steel Cladding is generally manufactured using a metal box profile outer sheet. This can be the only cladding sheet if the cladding is a single skin non insulated cladding system. The single sheet non insulated cladding will as standard have a colour coated finish on the outer sheet and a primer finish on the inner sheet side.
Non insulated building are normally used if the Steel Clad Building purpose is purely to keep materials secure and out of the elements. If you’re looking for some form of temperature control or plan on having people working in the building, we strongly recommend you consider an insulated Steel Clad Building.
If the Steel Cladding is an insulated system, there will be a box profile outer sheet and a metal internal liner sheet. Between those sheets will be a factory applied foam insulation, producing a sandwich panel or insulated fibre quilt and a grid spacer system. The inner sheet is normally a white finish and the outer sheet can be manufactured with a colour coated finish. At Steel Buildings we offer the composite sandwich panel insulated system. It provided an easier installation process and the insulation is a factory applied, ensure the product is correct and installation stage.
Insulated steel clad buildings provided temperature controlled environments, removing condensation build up. Building control may also need the Steel Building to confirm to Part L. Steel Building insulated panels are designed to meet the requirements of Part L. Depending on the end usage. A 115 mm core insulated foam thickness will be required on the roof and 80mm core on the walls.
A robust form of cladding
Steel Cladding is a good robust form of cladding a building and is commonly used on Industrial developments. The cladding is available in a number of colours and finishes, and the outer coating carries long warranties and designed to weather well.
Using Steel Cladding allows Steel Buildings to provide an fast turnaround, accurate long lasting Steel Build Buildings. Speak to a member of the Steel Buildings Sales team for more information.
External cladding systems available as standard
We offer two types on non insulated box profile cladding systems. Those types are Polyester Coated and Plastisol coated. Both are produced from the same steel coil. The Polyester finish is a paint like finish, and available in limited colours. This finish is typically used on Agricultural buildings, or
buildings that are budget driven. The polyester coating is thinner than other alternatives, making it more likely to scratch.
The second type has a plastisol leather grain finish. This is a more commonly used on industrial buildings. Being 200 microns rather than 30 micron on the polyester finish. Therefore doesn’t show marks the same way the polyester might.
For those that require an insulated cladding system, we offer a composite box profile panel system. With a leather grain plastisol finish on the external top sheet, and a bright white metal polyester paint finish on the internal face. The external and internal sheets sandwich a PIR insulation. That is available in depths of 40mm, 60mm, 80mm, 100mm and 115mm. If you are just looking for an insulated building, to only be used for a limited time each day. The 40mm depth panels is ideal, if you plan on having people working in the building for long periods. The normal go to depth, is 115mm for the roof sheets and 80mm for the wall sheets.
We do have a budget insulated panel, that is called the ECO panel. It has the same top sheet as above, and does have PIR insulation. The internal liner, is a white film. Rather than steel, it is a similar finish to the film you would see on a Celotex board.
