Micro-Rib

Ribbed Wall Panels Providing Design Flexibility

Kingspan's Micro-Rib insulated metal panels (IMPs), allow creative design flexibility because they can be used in multiple applications. Each Micro-Rib wall panel is a single component product and that feature produces faster on-site installation compared to multi-part foam insulated panels. This can minimise delays in construction. In addition, these insulated metal panels provide superior airtightness, low thermal bridging, and thermal performance of high R-value. The result can be energy savings up to 30% over traditional multi-part built-up systems. An added benefit is that Kingspan Micro-Rib panels, available in impressive coatings and colours, can increase a building's aesthetic appeal.

Web _R-Value High R-Value - provides superior levels of thermal (R-value) and airtightness performance over the service life of the building. The insulation is exterior of the building structure to provide the best thermal envelope by reducing thermal bridging typical of cavity wall systems.
Web _Single Component
Single Component -  minimizes construction delays and the need for multiple trades.
Faster Build
Faster Build - faster on-site installation time compared to traditional multi-part systems
Web_Return on Investment
Return on Investment - thermal performance of high R-value, superior airtightness and low thermal bridging result in energy cost savings of as much as 30% over traditional multi part built-up systems.
Web _Design Flexibility
Design Flexibility - Solutions for both vertical and horizontal wall applications. Available in multiple profiles, trimless ends, finishes and color options.
Web_Tested and Approved
Tested & Approved - panels have been extensively tested for compliance with various industry standards and building safety codes.


Sustainable Benefits of Micro-Rib

  • Energy efficiency. IMPs have a core of continuous, rigid insulation for industry leading R- and U- values with superior airtightness performance.
  • Indoor environmental quality. IMPs help ensure a stable interior environment.
  • Recycled and Recyclable. The exterior skins contain a substantial amount of recycled content, and the panels themselves are recyclable.
  • Recycled, low-weight materials. Made with recaptured metals, IMPs weigh only 3 pounds per square foot, reducing transport and installation energy.
  • Eased construction. IMPs are simple to detail and attach, reducing schedules and installation errors.
  • Life-cycle benefits. IMPs last as long as the service life of a typical commercial building. The durable panels also reduce operational costs for energy and maintenance, and offer multiple end-of-life reuse options.
  • Building certification and green targets. IMPs contribute to LEED certification programs and the path to Net-Zero Energy targets.
