The CF Flute exterior insulated metal wall panels are ideal for commercial, institutional, and industrial applications. The fluted wall panel’s ribbed profile provides bold vertical reveals, complimenting almost any building design. The profile exhibits traditional styling with distinctive vertical lines and can be used in conjunction with other Metl-Span profiles.
For use as an exterior wall to create a distinctive building profile where temperature control and insulation values are critical to the performance of the building, Flute panels are ideal for cold storage applications, including dry goods warehouses, cooler and freezer buildings, and food processing facilities. Flute panels are for all temperature-controlled environments where maintaining temperature control and insulation values are critical. Metl-Span also offers USDA-compliant stainless steel for use in washdown areas. Contact our representatives today to learn more.
1. Metallic paint finishes will exhibit color shift, shade variances, striations and longitudinal patterning that are inherent characteristics and are not a product defect or cause for rejection.
2. All Metl-Span colors are formulated to provide maximum energy-efficiency and solar reflectivity. All standard available Premium I and Premium II colors have been formulated for maximum solar reflectance.
3. Prices vary by color, gauge and quantity of metal. Please contact your Metl-Span representative for complete information.
4. All colors shown are approximate actual finish colors displayed as accurately as possible.
5. Light Stone – Tuff Cote® does not match the Light Stone – Standard SP color offering.

Load Span Tables
The Load Span Tables below, excluding Partition Wall, are based on Allowable Stress Design (ASD). For loads calculated based on ASCE 7-10 (LRFD), please refer to section 2.4.1 of ASCE 7-10 for the applicable load combinations using Allowable Stress Design.
Deflection caused by temperature differential induced thermal bow is not addressed in the above table and may result in allowable spans that are less than the spans listed above and may require the use of heavier 24 or 22 gage panel facings at added cost. Except for self-supporting the dead weight of the panel, partition wall panels are non-load bearing. Ceiling panels must be supported from the structure above or by an internal support structure. Panel skins must be captured at both ends of the panel by supporting members designed to support reaction pressures from a 5 psf interior pressure. CF-42 = 42″ wide. CF-45 = 44.5″ wide.
Rate of Air Leakage Through Curtain Walls Under Specified Pressure Differences
<0.04 cfm/ft2 air infiltration rate at static pressure differential of 1.57 psf Vertical or Horizontal installation
Air Leakage of Air Barrier Assemblies
<0.04 cfm/ft2 air infiltration rate at static pressure differential of 1.57 psf, after 2,000 cycles at +/- 16.71 psf Vertical or Horizontal installation; with and without penetrations
Water Penetration of Exterior Walls by Uniform Static Air Pressure Differences
No uncontrolled leakage when tested to a static pressure differential of 6.24 psf for 2 hours Vertical or Horizontal installation
Classic Car Showcase
Collectors eventually want to display their collection. A classic car enthusiast wanted a state-of-the-art facility in the Adirondack Mountains of New York; a “green” building to showcase his stable of Fords and Packards. To help the facility be energy efficient, insulated metal panels (IMPs) from Metl-Span were chosen for the roofing and walls.
Mesa Rim, purveyors of climbing and fitness centers in California, Nevada and Texas, recently expanded their operations by opening a location in San Marcos, California. The company was focused on securing a foothold in southern California, and San Marcos was ideal – home of Cal State University, and a growing community dotted with churches, movie theaters and restaurants.
A major renovation and addition to a building that’s a part of the Tech Parks Arizona has created additional working space for potential research and development tenants. Aesthetics played a large role in the choice of insulated metal panels from Metl-Span for the addition.
With completion of a major renovation, Shelburne Green office park in Shelburne, VT takes on a dramatic new appearance. The previous structure was a “smorgasbord of attached buildings” according to general contractor Dan Cameron of DHCameron Construction Company in N. Ferrisburgh, VT. The original 15,000 sq. ft. building was constructed in the 1950s and then added onto over the years with pre-engineered buildings.
