The Insulated 7.2 Panel combines a 7.2 rib panel design with a polyurethane foam core.

Three new insulated metal panel profiles were recently added to MBCI’s eco-FICIENT Series product line. The new panels include the eco-FICIENT Insulated 7.2 Panel, the eco-FICIENT Insulated HPCI Barrier, and the eco-FICIENT Insulated Fire Resistant Panel.

The Insulated 7.2 Panel combines a 7.2 rib panel design with a polyurethane foam core. It can be installed vertically and horizontally, allowing the same design flexibility that is available with the single skin 7.2 Panel. The coverage width is 36 inches and it is available in thicknesses of 2 ½, 3, 4, 5, and 6 inches.

The HPCI Barrier is an air, water, thermal and vapor barrier panel that can be used behind any type of façade. This back-up panel is installed in a horizontal orientation completely outside the structural supports. There are no thermal bridges to reduce the energy efficiency of the wall. The coverage width is 42 inches and it’s available in thicknesses of 2, 3, and 4 inches. This panel must be separated from the interior of the building by an approved thermal barrier of .5-inch gypsum wallboard to meet IBC requirements.

Finally, the Insulated Fire Resistant Panel consists of metal facings bonded to a structural mineral wool core to create a composite panel that achieves fire resistance ratings under the most demanding of conditions. This mineral wool panel is rated for its 1-, 2-, and 3-hour fire resistance qualities and provides thermal performance and protection from the elements. This panel also has good sound reduction acoustical properties because of the mineral wool insulation. It is available in a width of 42 inches.
