Translucent Panels for Metal Buildings

 


 

CFR Translucent Panel


CFR Translucent Panels are factory assembled with the metal portion of the panel a polyester polar white color.  The “lighted” part can be insulated or non-insulated.

CFR Translucent Panels are available for an Underwriters Laboratory (UL) rated roof system only with 5’-0” purlin/joist spacing, however panels are available to fit on 5’-6” or 6’-0” purlin/joist spacing.

 Translucent Panel
The UL rating is achieved by simply hand crimping the full length of the translucent panel. No extra framing or materials are required.
 
The CFR translucent panels cannot be placed from end to end, eave to eave or at the eave of a building. Recommended distance from the low eave of a building to first translucent panel is 15’-0” (+/-). They cannot be placed directly beside another translucent panel.  When translucent panels are installed side by side there needs to be a minimum of four (4) CFR panel runs between each unit and four (4) full panels in from each endwall.

Space the translucent panels so the full metal panels above, between and below are supported by a minimum of three (3) roof secondary members, preferably four (4).  Do not use the translucent panels as a construction platform.  Whenever possible, it is recommended that wall translucent panels be used in lieu of roof translucent panels.

Classic Roof™ Translucent Panel

Classic Roof Translucent Panels are field installed with self-drilling screws. Tape mastic is to be installed at the panel perimeter.  Panels are available to fit on 5’-0” or 5’-6” purlin spacing, with a UL rating available only with 5’-0” spacing.

Wall Translucent Panel

Cardinal offers wall translucent panels, which are commonly used in lieu of roof translucent panels.  These panels are field installed with self-drilling screws and 3/8” grommet seal fasteners (field drilling required).  These panels are available in 5’-0” and 10’-0” nominal lengths as a standard.  With a wall band (wall translucents the full length of a wall), the panel at the end of the band will be a full height metal panel to allow for better corner trim attachment.
