Commercial Panels

Commercial Panels
The commercial family of panels performs superbly on roof slopes as low as 1/12. The 26 gauge panels can span up to 4′.

PBR Panel
The PBR Panel is used mostly for steel-frame buildings, but can also be used on wood-frame buildings.

The PBR Panel is engineered and designed for maximum structural stability.

For excellent strength and leak resistance, the PBR Panel has full, 1-1/4″ high major ribs every 12″ which are 1″ wide at the top and over 3″ wide at the base.
The PBR panel has a purlin-bearing-leg approximately 1″ long at the underlap that rests on the purlin for extra support.
Sealant tape and stitch screws are recommended for improved leak protection.

A Panel

For an architecturally attractive look, try our A Panel on your side walls and interior liner. The A Panel is practically identical to PBR panel but in reverse.  The paint is on the opposite side and is meant to be installed upside-down, relatively speaking.

R Panel

The R Panel is identical to the PBR Panel but without the purlin-bearing-leg.  Because of that, we only recommend the R Panel for sidewall applications and not for the roof.
The R panel comes in 9 glare-resistant textured colors with 40-year warranties.

Heavy-duty 26 Gauge Steel

Thicker steel means more durability and impact resistance. The PBR Panel is available in 26 gauge AZ-50 Galvalume (not for animal confinement). Also available in 24 Gauge Bright White and Galvalume (unpainted).  The 26 gauge is available in 11 energy-efficient colors.

Made to Custom Lengths

This means you’re not paying for that extra 2 feet or 1/2 inch that you don’t need. Plus, think of all the time you’re saving by not having to trim down each panel to size.

Ready in Hours

If sizes change, or you come up a few pieces short, you’re not looking at 2-week lead times. The PBR Panel is ready in hours… not days.*


The details matter… even if you need a microscope to see them. As the panel is formed, the steel is heated to prevent microscopic cracking of the paint coating that protects against rust.

Energy Efficient

The radiant heat-blocking property of the steel and the reflectivity of the paint can save on your energy bills.  Check out the Solar Reflectivity Index to see the reflectivity testing of each color.

40-year Paint Warranties

You can enjoy the benefits for many years to come.  Check out our basic color visualizer to experiement with the color options.
