We offer a wide range of competitively priced insulated wall panels from a range of trusted, quality manufacturers. These include Kingspan and Tata Steel to name just two. We are experts in all things about insulated wall sheets.
Prestige is an independent supplier. As a result, we’re able to supply you with a wide range of wall insulation sheets and panels.
Having been supplying roofing and cladding products for many years, we can quickly source a wide range of products for delivery. Our range includes open-fix jointed wall insulation sheets, discrete fixed joints, standard foam or rockwool insulate wall sheets, and cold room panels.
Most of the insulated wall sheets we supply are made from stainless steel with a core of polyurethane foam (PU/PUR). We’re seeing an increasing number of orders for insulated wall panels with rockwool or polyisocyanurate foam (PIR) due to their increased fire resistance qualities.
The panels we supply are assembled using a ‘tongue and groove’ system and can be either open or secret fixed.
We only work with and supply high-quality insulated wall sheets fromtried, tested and trusted manufacturers that also offer appropriate warranties. When you choose Prestige, you also choose peace of mind.
This means that, on request, we can offer a wide range of robust wall solutions, manufactured to your exact specifications and RAL-colour requirements. No project is one size fits all, so at Prestige we offer our customers flexibility as standard.
Best of all, we’ve made the purchasing process simple. Since we have many years’ experience in the trade, we co-ordinate your deliveries to help keep your project on track and on time. Our national logistics network delivers the insulated wall panels you need quickly, easily and cost-effectively.
Insulated wall panels are made from two galvanised coasted steel sheets (an external sheet and internal one). Sandwiched between the two metal sheets is an insulation core that is made from polyurethane (PUR), polyisocyanurate (PIR) or a type of mineral wool called rockwool.
Insulated wall sheets are ideal for industrial and commercial buildings because they offer excellent thermal insulation, fire resistance, and moisture protection. Insulated wall panels are also incredibly easy to fit since they are lightweight and, depending on the specified product, they can be used on roofs as well. Straight from the manufacturers, they are immediately ready to be installed.
Although most outside insulated wall sheets tend to be made from galvanised steel, the inner shell can be made of stainless steel, thinner aluminium sheets or glass-fibre reinforced plastic.
By joining the outer and inner insulated wall sheets together with a specified core material, insulated wall panels are difficult to break or damage.
The individual insulated wall panels are simply connected to each other by a tongue and groove joint, or by secret fixing fastening screws, which we also stock at PIRS.
Insulated wall sheets or panels have three main layers, but if we are to be very technical (which we are), there are several components.
Insulated wall panels have an inner and outer metal sheet. The outer metal sheet alone will be galvanised on each side, then a pretreament layer, followed by a primer coat and a top coat.
As all the individual layers serve a functional purpose, it’s vital that the specification process takes into account a building’s environmental factors. Only then can the correct coatings be applied. For instance, the coating on internal facing insulated wall sheets will be different to external sheets. For example, exterior insulated wall sheets will contain a UV protection layer and in humid interiors, such as leisure centres, an appropriate anti-corrosion would be specified.
Most of the time, internal insulated wall sheets are made from steel. However, they can be made from glass-fibre reinforced plastic, especially in factories where there is a high exposure to chemicals or salt. Likewise, aluminium insulated wall sheets may also be chosen for the internal face. Although, these insulated wall panels are not usually the first choice as they have a high thermal expansion.
The core material (the insulation sandwiched between the two insulated wall sheets) is made from polyurethane (PU), polyisocyanurate (PIR), rockwool or QuadCore.
PU is made from expanded polyurethane, which as a closed cell core. As an insulation wall sheets core, it be used in a broad range of thicknesses and densities to offer good thermal insulation.
PIR is a thermoset plastic and is produced as a foam to form a rigid thermal insulation core. Although the starting materials used are very similar to PU, the resulting chemical structure is different. Insulated wall panels with a PIR core are often chosen over PU for their fire resistance. PIR is far better at slowing the spread of flames and reducing smoke emissions. Therefore, PIR insulated wall panels tend to be more expensive than PU ones.
Rockwool is another popular core material, which is often chosen for special fire protection. As a mineral wool, it is non-combustible. However, it does not quite match up to PIR and PU insulated wall panels in terms of thermal insulation.
The newest insulated wall sheets core to hit the market is Kingspan’s QuadCore. It matches the highest performance of any closed cell insulation core on fire resistance, thermal insulation and longevity. Although it is more expensive, it is 50% quicker to install, lightweight, and requires less fixings.
At PIRS, there’s very little we do not stock and nothing we cannot get hold of at a competitive price when it comes to insulated wall sheets.
However, the main brands of insulated wall sheets we stock tend to be Kingspan, Joriside, Eurobond and Tata steel. All these manufacturers are exceptionally well known for making high quality insulated wall panels and sheets. As such, they offer excellent manufacturer warranties.
Whether you are looking for architectural insulated wall panels, tile effect insulated wall sheets, composite panels, or specialist products for added fire resistance, we have just the solution. Quite simply, if you need it, we’ll source it.
If you are looking for insulated wall sheets that offer added fire resistance, you have several options. If you are looking for a polyurethane based product, you are better to choose insulated wall panels with polyisocyanurate (PIR) rather than simply PU since it has better fire resistance – it is far better a slowing the spread of flames and smoke emissions.
However, if you want you insulated wall sheets core to be non-combustible, you have the option of rock wool. Being a mineral based wool, it offers excellent fire resistance.
Alternatively, depending on the application, you may choose Eurobond insulated wall panels. With a stone wool core, the insulated wall sheets offer excellent fire resistance.
Similarly, although using a different technology, Kingspan’s QuadCore is another fantastic product. As a closed cell insulation core product, it offers superb performance across all key factors: thermal, environmental, longevity, and of course, fire.
