Steel Clad Buildings
At Thistle Steel we mainly supply Steel Clad Buildings. Steel Cladding is generally manufactured using a metal box profile outer sheet. This can be the only cladding sheet if the cladding is a single skin non insulated cladding system. The single sheet non insulated cladding will as standard have a colour coated finish on the outer sheet and a primer finish on the inner sheet side.
Non insulated building are normally used if the Steel Clad Building purpose is purely to keep materials secure and out of the elements. If you’re looking for some form of temperature control or plan on having people working in the building, we strongly recommend you consider an insulated Steel Clad Building.
If the Steel Cladding is an insulated system, there will be a box profile outer sheet and a metal internal liner sheet. Between those sheets will be a factory applied foam insulation, producing a sandwich panel or insulated fibre quilt and a grid spacer system. The inner sheet is normally a white finish and the outer sheet can be manufactured with a colour coated finish. At Thistle Steel we offer the composite sandwich panel insulated system. It provided an easier installation process and the insulation is a factory applied, ensure the product is correct and installation stage.
