Cool Coating Paint Technology
NBG metal panels feature vivid, fade-resistant color, incredible durability and environmentally friendly cool technology originally developed for Stealth Aircraft in the U.S. Military. Nothing works better or lasts longer. Due to energy-cost savings, architectural appeal, variety of profiles, texture and color, flexibility and long-term durability, NBG’s cool coating panels are a popular choice for architects and building owners. These revolutionary coatings help generate lower environmental temperatures reducing smog and the heat island effect. Additionally, they help reduce cooling costs in hot summer months.
Insulated Wall Systems
The wall panel systems provided by NBG can accommodate most wall insulation options. Also providing the opportunity to achieve a green metal building, are our insulated metal panels provided by TrueCore. These wide panels install quickly and easily, giving reliable thermal performance and insulation continuity — no cavities, no gaps, no crushed insulation, and no cold bridges. No change of R-value occurs when purlin and girt center dimensions are varied. Fasteners are concealed within the panel side joint, and the attractive profiles are an ideal solution where energy-efficient panels are required.
Insulated Roof Systems
At NBG we offer roof system options that can accommodate the insulation needed to keep your building energy compliant. Single & double layer blanket insulation, thermal block, super-saver, and R-Boost are among our many insulation options. R-Boost is an economical roof insulation system that provides increased levels of thermal performance to your building. It is the highest performing, more economical choice on the market today, and may help you gain LEED points. Designed to work with any NBG brand standing seam roof system, R-Boost features a bridge between the initial and secondary layer of blanket insulation. This effectively doubles your insulation capacity, and helps meet energy codes throughout the country.
Web Based Estimating with COMcheck
COMcheck is an incredibly useful tool to help you become energy compliant, and it is available through the online quoting tool used by our metal buildings brands. From IECC and ASHRAE, to local and state codes, it is vital to confirm your compliance. COMcheck will help you determine if you are compliant, help you decide what needs to be changed in order to become compliant, and give you the ability to select the most cost-effective options to become code compliant.
Prismatic Skylights & Daylighting
Daylighting with Prismatic Skylights is the controlled admission of natural sunlight into your building, using diffused skylights in conjunction with energy-efficient lighting and a daylight-responsive lighting control system. This combination maximizes your energy savings. Prismatic skylights diffuse incoming sunlight, refracting light into micro light beams, and spreading the sun’s bright light throughout your building’s space. This allows electric lights, with responsive controls, to be dimmed or turned off for a portion of the day while making the interior more pleasant and saving on energy costs.
