Item # UP100-003-1109, 38" Universal Panel

List Price List Price {QUOTE}

You can't afford a leaky building. And Universal Panel, with its unique configuration and rib design, keeps water out at joints and keeps your livestock and equipment dry through the heaviest downpours and longest drizzles. But Universal Panel's special rib design makes it virtually impossible for this siphoning action to occur.

It's hard to believe that anything as tough and efficient as Universal Panel can look so good - but it does, because it translates the traditional board-and-batten look into colorful, durable galvanized siding and roofing. High 3/4-inch ribs capture a clean, architecturally pleasing, continuous pattern of light and shadow.

As colorful as it is durable, Universal Panel is available in galvanized and 15 rich, popular colors, carefully selected for their appeal, and vivid enough to stand out without being obtrusive or incompatible with your other buildings.

All interior surfaces are off-white to brighten interiors and to protect against condensation damage. The color-coating on Universal Panel is not only good-looking, it's built tough to stay that way. The colors are more than just a surface layer of paint. The color-coating is actually a thermo-setting, or oven-cured system of four coatings.

The color coating process includes:
  1. A G60 hot-dip galvanized (zinc) coating protects the cold-rolled steel base metal against corrosion and assures years of low-maintenance performance.
  2. A zinc phosphate coating prepares the galvanized surface for the tight adhesion of primer.
  3. A primer paint coating insures adhesion of the finish coating and protects against corrosion.
  4. A siliconized polyester finish paint coating (polyester finish paint coating on Bone White) provides a rich, durable surface color and additional protection.
  • ENERGY STAR qualified roof products reflect more of the sun's rays. This can lower roof surface temperatures, decreasing the amount of heat transferred into a building.
  • ENERGY STAR qualified roof products can help reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce peak cooling demand by 10-15 percent.
Universal Panel meets building codes

A Universal Panel structure has no trouble meeting building codes. In areas with excessive wind forces or extraordinary snow loads, framing can be adjusted easily according to distances recommended in Universal Panel load tables.

A warranty you can live with, and an identification concept to make it work

Color-coated Universal Panel has a 40-year warranty. Universal Panel is made right here in the U.S.A. We control every step of the manufacturing process from iron ore to finished product. More significantly, every sheet of color-coated Universal Panel is "signed" - the bock of each panel carries on identification number that represents the month, year and coil number of the steel and its color-cooling. This identification is proof that we intend to honor the warranty.
