You can choose from several wall systems — Panel Rib™, Vee Rib™, RPR™ Panel, Tech Four Plus, Textureclad™, ImpressaClad™, four different ThermalClad™ profiles including textured TuffWall™ — to find the look that most precisely meets your needs. VP framing systems also permit the use of an unlimited variety of materials for alternative exteriors, or non-metal walls. Varco Pruden also offers two liner panel options and a soffit panel for attractive under-eave cladding.
For economy, Panel Rib™ beats wood, concrete or masonry alternatives. Self-drilling, color-matched stainless steel capped fasteners and a 36" panel width give you rapid, economical installation. Panel Rib™ comes in lengths up to 43', which can provide a continuous wall panel from foundation to eave. This eliminates the need for endlaps and assures you of wall integrity and weather-tightness. These metal wall panels are available in 14 standard KXL finish colors and a variety of custom colors. 26 gauge is standard, but you also have the option of 22 or 24 gauge. See examples of projects with Panel Rib™ wall panels.
The Vee Rib™ wall panel features a V-groove pattern, semi-concealed fasteners located in the bottom of the groove, and 1-1/4" reveals. Its surface, embossed for aesthetic appeal, reduces glare. Self-drilling fasteners and 36" panel width provide for economical installation. Vee Rib™ comes in lengths up to 39', which can provide a continuous wall panel from foundation to eave, eliminating the need for endlaps while assuring wall integrity and weather-tightness. The metal wall panels are available in 14 standard KXL finish colors and a variety of custom colors. See examples of projects with Vee Rib™ wall panels.
RPR™ Panel is a reverse-rolled version of our popular Panel Rib™ profile. This economical wall system features self-drilling, color-matched fasteners and a 36" panel width to provide a continuous wall panel from foundation to eave, eliminating the need for endlaps, while assuring wall integrity and weather-tightness. The metal wall panels are available in 14 standard KXL finish colors and a variety of custom colors. RPR™ can effectively use up to 6' of blanket insulation, as well as up to 2-1/2" of rigid board insulation.
Tech Four™ offers 16" coverage with 1/4" high, 4" wide alternating fluted profile. Available in lengths of up to 40', Tech Four can provide continuous coverage from foundation to eave - eliminating the need for endlaps and assuring superior weather tightness. Manufactured in sturdy 24 gauge steel for added strength and erect-ability, Tech Four's 2" deep overall profile easily adapts to a variety of insulation options (including batt, blanket or rigid board) creating a more energy-efficient building envelope.
Tech Four Plus provides an additional energy advantage by providing field-located thermal blocks between the panel and girts. The thermal barriers allow increased insulation to be placed behind the wall panel. In addition, these thermal spacers create more room for the recovery of the insulation, thus significantly enhancing the thermal efficiency. The Tech Four Plus wall system can increase R-values by 27%.
Available in VP'x long-life KXL finish with 70% PVDF (Kynar 500 or Hylar 5000), Tech Four™ is available in Cool Egyptian White, Cool Granite Gray, Cool Straw Gold, Cool Cobalt Blue, Cool Cotton White, Cook Dark Bronze and Cool Leaf Green.
