Metal PBR Panels: What Makes It Superior?

By May 16, 2018 No Comments

When it comes to building a structure using steel, choosing high-quality metal PBR panels makes a big difference in the durability and lifespan of the building. No one wants to see their hard-earned money invested in a structure that won’t stand the test of time.

Here at JAG Metals, we believe in supplying only the best metal buildings materials—panels, trim, and components. If you’ve been thinking about making the leap from traditional roof and siding materials to durable metal building materials, we’ve got you covered. From design to the simplest of application—JAG Metals is here for you!

There are several different kinds of metal panels out there to meet a variety of structural application needs. Purlin Bearing Rib (PBR) panels are proven to be the superior panel for a few reasons. Read on to see what sets these metal PBR panels apart from others.

Metal PBR Panels Manufactured to Have a “Leg Up”

The main difference between PBR panels and other panels begins during the manufacturing process. PBR panels have a unique feature often referred to as a “lip” or “purlin bearing leg” that other panels don’t have.

This extra feature provides the metal panel with additional support for better fastening strength. A panel’s durability and longevity is directly related to how well it can be fastened and secured to decking material. Because of their unique qualities, PBR panels are proven to be Texas windstorm approved where other panels are not.

Installation Options

Another benefit of PBR panels is that they can be installed over open framing or solid substrate. This makes them a viable option for both commercial and residential applications and provides a bit of flexibility in the building and installation process. Additionally, the minimum roof slope for PBR panels is a ½:12 slope which allows structures more clearance on those height restricted products.

Painted for Protection

Our PBR panels are painted with Valspar paint, a leader in industrial paint, and come with a Valspar WeatherXL Limited Warranty Guarantee. Painted PBR panels are certainly superior aesthetically, but beyond curb appeal, the painted metal PBR panels also provide excellent protection against the elements. Customers considering metal building materials are typically concerned about rust and energy efficiency. A painted exterior provides a layer of protection from things such as impact or hail, reducing the chances of rusting panels. It also acts as a barrier to sunlight, reflecting rather than absorbing the heat of the sun.
