Choosing the right materials for your roofing, whether it’s a residential, commercial or industrial project, it comes down to finding a solution that will withstand the harsh Queensland weather and won’t cost an arm and a leg to install. Insulated roof panels come in many thicknesses, colours and materials, so it can be tough to choose the right ones.

In this article, the experts at Rollsec are exploring the benefits and uses of insulated sandwich panels for Queensland roofs.


What are Sandwich Panels?

Sandwich panels are often referred to as “structural insulating panels” and are used widely across Australia to meet the specific needs of our tough climate. Sandwich panels consist of three layers; a durable steel outer layer, an insulated core and a flat steel ceiling profile.

The three layers work together as a composite, meaning they offer higher quality performance than if they were used alone.

The core layer works to keep the two rigid layers in position, resisting shear forces and offering superior insulation in a range of applications. The two outer layers offer higher levels of durability, weather resistance and resistance against tension and compression. Sandwich panels have revolutionised the construction industry because they offer an all-in-one solution to common problems.


The Benefits of Insulated Sandwich Panels

Typically, insulated roof sheets are fabricated off-site and are brought on-site in projects where a high-performance cladding is needed. The additional benefits of insulated panels include:

  • Fast and easy installation
  • Rigidity
  • Thermal and sound insulation
  • Fire-retardant core
  • Airtightness
  • Robust and durable
  • Easy maintenance and cleaning requirements
  • Low start-up and lifetime costs
  • Resistance to chemicals and biological issues
  • Weather resistance
  • Stability
  • A huge range of colours, finishes and thicknesses to match your style


The Main Uses of Insulated Roof Panels in Queensland

There are so many different applications for insulated roof panels. The most common use for them is for patios and outdoor spaces. However they are often used as external cladding for single and multi-storey buildings in Queensland because of their excellent weather resistance and resistance to weight and damage. They are also used in specialist applications such as internal envelopes, ceiling panels, partitions, cold rooms and creating fire-resistant walls.

Some building types that feature insulated panels include:

  • Industrial buildings
  • Processing plants
  • Modular and temporary buildings
  • Storage rooms
  • Clean rooms in various industries
  • Agricultural buildings
  • Shopping centres
  • Sports stadiums
  • Transport hubs
