SYNTHEON® Inc. and IMETCO® Announce Sales Agreement


IMETCO adds the SYNTHEON ACCEL-E® wall system, a one-step framing and insulation solution, to its line of metal wall products to offer single-source stud-to-cladding solutions

PITTSBURGH, PA SYNTHEON® Inc. (SYNTHEON), the manufacturer of the ACCEL-E® Steel Thermal Efficient Panel wall system and IMETCO®, a leading manufacturer of high quality metal products for the building envelope, have reached a national sales agreement allowing IMETCO to offer the ACCEL-E® wall framing and insulating system, extending its line of building envelope solutions from the cladding to the stud.

SYNTHEON’s ACCEL-E Steel Thermal Efficient Panel wall system combines the strength of cold-formed steel framing with the insulation properties of expanded polystyrene (EPS). The result is a thermally resistant, high performance building system that’s strong, lightweight and energy efficient.  ACCEL-E offers a host of advantages over conventional building techniques including exceeding the IECC code for energy efficient performance requirements, faster installation time, labor savings, NFPA 285 compliance and more.
