The Architectural insulated wall panel is ideal for high-profile architectural applications. The panels may be installed either vertically or horizontally for maximum design flexibility. Multiple module widths and joint reveals add to the design variations available. Attached with concealed clips and fasteners in the side joint, Architectural wall panels provide a beautiful flush appearance.

Notes:

  1. The Load Span Table above is based on Allowable Stress Design (ASD). For loads calculated based on ASCE 7-10 (LRFD), please refer to section 2.4.1 of ASCE 7-10 for the applicable load combinations using Allowable Stress Design.
  2. Based on CF-panel with 22 ga. Architecturally Flat exterior and 26 ga. Light Mesa interior face (min Fy = 33 ksi).
  3. Fastener pattern FP1 is based on CF panel clips fastened to min. 14 ga. steel with (2) ¼”-14 SDS Tek 3 at all supports. For 12
    ga. or thicker steel, #12-24 SDS Tek 5 may be used. In lieu of self-drilling screws, self-tapping screws may be used.
  4. For CF-30, FP2 is based on FP1 along with (1) Fablok fastener at 10″ o.c. from panel sidelap. For CF-24 and CF-36, FP2 is based on FP1 along with (1) Fablok fastener at 12″ o.c from panel sidelap.
  5. For CF-30, FP3 is based on FP1 along with (2) Fablok fastener at 10″ o.c. from panel sidelap. For CF-36, FP3 is based on FP1 along with (2) Fablok fastener at 12″ o.c from panel sidelap.
  6. Allowable loads based on panel stress, connection strength and deflection design criteria are derived from ASTM E72 and E1592 structural testing.
  7. The allowable inward or outward loads is the smallest load calculated with a factor of safety of 2.5 for bending stress, 3.0 for shear stresses, 2.0 for connection and deflection limitation of L/180.
  8. The structural capacity of the supports are not considered and must be examined independently.

  2. Based on CF-panel with 22 ga. Architectural Flat exterior and 26 ga. Light Mesa interior face (min Fy = 33 ksi).
  3. Refer to the allowable connection load chart, for suction loads.
  4. Allowable positive or suction load is the lowest value of panel bending strength, shear strength, deflection limit and connection strength for each fastener pattern.
  5. Allowable loads based on panel stress and deflection design criteria are derived from ASTM E72 structural testing and calculated with factor of safety of 2.5 for bending stress, 3.0 for shear stresses and deflection limitation of L/180.
  6. The structural capacity of the purlins are not considered and must be examined independently.
  7. Consult Metl-Span for recommendtions on panel profile and gage suitable for thermal stresses.
