Steadmans expands range of AS35 panels with PIR insulation

Roof cladding specialist Steadmans has added a 120mm thick option with a U-value of 0.17 to its AS35 range of insulated panels. Specifiers now have a choice of eight different panel depths. The options 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 sandwiched 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. The company says the AS35 range offers excellent thermal performance due to the PIR core’s low conductivity, and has a life expectancy of up to 40 years.
