Up to R6 Insulation rating
New Innovative Metrapanel SIP system
The concept of Metrapanel is brilliantly simple: solid wall and ceiling panels pre-cut to simplify and speed up construction.
The Metrapanel construction system uses a moisture resistant construction panel made from engineered wood fibres and flakes. Metrapanel is supplied pre-cut up to 7.35m x 2.45m and is available in three thickness options.
There are 36mm for solid core interior walls, 25mm for ceilings and floors, and 18mm for plumbing, electrical cavities and wall linings. The thinner wall system is able to offer the client 6% more floor space, producing their home 40% faster build time than traditional method. Metrapanel homes are well insulated achieving upto a R6 insulation rating compared to standard building code requirements R 2.3 in the North Island and R2.5 in the South Island all achieved at a competitive cost.
The Metrapanel construction system may be used to create the interior surface as well as the structural and bracing elements of the building. It offers strong, durable walls and ceiling with a beautifully smooth finish easily achieving a level 5 finish.
The Metra system including the panel manufacture process, the precept factory operation and the Metra Design and Construction Manual has been fully appraised by the Building Research Association of New Zealand (BRANZ).Learn More
