PanelCraft™ Insulated Panels

The PanelCraft™ roof system is a technological marvel

Insulated Patio Covers Description

This technological marvel is made using two aluminum skins bonded to stabilizing core material. These “sandwich” panels are incredibly strong. Use them on your patio room or as a stand-alone cover for your patio. Rely on PanelCraft™ aluminum panels to provide protection from the sun, rain, and snow. Enjoy outdoor gatherings or just relax in your favourite patio lounge chair on a hot summer day without worrying about the sun’s harsh effects.

PanelCraft™ aluminum roof panels provide attractive and maintenance free protection for your patio enclosure, deck or sun porch. Installed as a carport, PanelCraft™ keeps you from getting wet or tripping through the snow as you get the groceries from the car to the house, as well as giving your car shelter.

PanelCraft™ polystyrene (“foam”) core panels are best of the breed. They feature our unique Krystal Kote clear protective finish and a high-density foam core. PanelCraft™ foam panels are built to withstand our Canadian snow loads with the engineering to prove it.

Craft-Bilt also manufactures PanelCraft™ panels with our exclusive honeycomb core technology. Honeycomb technology is found in critical applications such as airplane wings, rocket gantry platforms and the floor and roof panels of the Acura Vigor, just to name a few. Our Honeycomb panels are even stronger than our foam panels, yet only cost a small percentage more. Although they have less insulation than foam panels, many customers choose them for their Three and Four Season sunrooms. Occasionally, in some jurisdictions, obtaining a building permit is difficult with roof panels containing foam cores. Honeycomb core panels do not suffer from such building code issues.

PanelCraft™ structural insulated panels are your best choice for an insulated, maintenance-free roof system. Craft-Bilt’s laminated roof panels have been covering Canadians for over 35 years, longer than any other Canadian sunroom manufacturer.

 

Specifications

PanelCraft™ panels come in three thicknesses: 3″, 4½” and 6″. The thicker the panel, the farther it can span and the more insulation it has. The 3″ panel takes care of most applications, however always obey your local building code.

Craft-Bilt™ also provides special foam core panels that are lined with OSB (Oriented Strand Board). These panels address particular concerns of a small percentage of building departments in Ontario.
