Panel Options

Steel Building Exterior Options

Strong PBR (Purlin Bearing Rib) roof and wall panels of 26-gauge high-tensile steel are standard in RHINO’s metal building kits.  These attractive and durable PBR panels feature extra overlap (see below) for increased strength and extra water resistance.  These sturdy steel panels are coated with Galvalume® for weather protection.  The color is then baked on top of the Galvalume® for an additional layer of protection.  The Galvalume® coating and the color coating has a 30-year warranty.  Other metal building companies use ordinary “R” panels with shorter overlap, producing less metal-to-metal contact and a weaker connection.

Cool-Coated Panels

RHINO also offers Cool-Coated Panels as an option for those who want to save the most on energy bills.  These innovative roof panels actually reflect 40%-50% of the heat away from the building.  That keeps the interior cooler, saving 7%-15% on cooling bills.  It even extends the life of the roof itself, lowers the temperature of the environment around it, and helps to reduce smog levels.  There is a whole palette of beautiful color options, with a choice of 16 roof panel colors and 12 wall panel colors.

Canopy Configurations

Customize the look of your RHINO metal building by changing the roof line profile with snappy canopy configurations.  RHINO can add 2’-10’ canopies to sidewalls with soffit or 3’-10’ canopies on end walls.  Door canopy kits are also an option and can be configured to fit 30”, 40” and 60” wide door openings.  The illustrations above show some of the possibilities from RHINO.  Call your RHINO building specialist today to discuss these options in more detail: 888.320.7466.

Gutters and Downspouts

A practical addition to any RHINO building, gutters and downspouts can be ordered in colors to match the wall panels or, if you prefer, to match the contrasting trim color of your new building.  This is another great way to protect and waterproof your metal building by channeling excess water away from the building and foundation.

Ventilation

Proper ventilation will extend the life of your roof because it minimizes the temperature differences between the roof cavity and the outside air.  Proper ventilation removes moisture.  Trapped moisture not only reduces the R-value of the insulation, it can also cause condensation problems.
