HE40 - Heavy Embossed Insulated Metal Panels

The HE40’s flat exterior and heavily embossed, stucco texture, mimics the look of a masonry stucco finish. This profile is ideal for facilities where design character is desired. The heavy embossment adds rigidity to the panel, yet maintains a patterned flat appearance. Heavy Embossed panels are available with a pre-painted finish, or may be field sprayed with a textured or stucco-style coating.

Features and Benefits

  • The double tongue & groove is self aligning and weather tight. This allows for sealant application at either the interior or exterior side of the panel joinery depending, on the direction of the vapor drive.
  • Hidden/concealed fasteners give the panel a clean, aesthetically appealing appearance.
  • Removable film prevents damage to the exterior of the panel during shipping and installation.
  • This panel arrives on site in one piece and requires one simple step installation, reducing construction time and costs.
  • Standard exterior and interior steel surface is 26 gauge.
