Insulated roof panels for pitched roofs are the perfect way to ensure a windproof and watertight roof. FALK carries no fewer than three types of insulated roof panels in its range.
FALK carries an extensive range of insulated roof panels, including an insulated model with a corrugated profile and two insulated trapezoidal models.
Insulated panels are an easy way to save energy. And a FALK roofing panel is the perfect way to separate the inside from the outside. Read more about our insulated roof panels.
Insulated roofing panels are a highly effective solution for adding the finishing touch to your pitched roof. They combine the finish, insulation and protection – all in a single product. We manufacture the sheets in various shapes and sizes for our customers on our own modern production lines in Ede. A sandwich roofing panel consists of three components:
To manufacture our prefabricated roof panels with insulation, we buy the necessary raw materials – steel coils and chemicals for making the PIR insulation – from our suppliers. We profile these steel coils into the desired model, after which we apply a layer of the PIR insulation in the desired thickness. We then cut the panels to size and package them carefully, so that they are ready for shipping to your site – which we take care of ourselves in our own lorries.
There are several advantages to a pitched roof made of metal sheets with an insulated core. As mentioned above, an insulated roof panel combines three features in one product: insulation, protection and the finish. This also results in a much lower cost per square metre of roof than a tiled roof, for example.
If, at a later date, you want to install an accessory on your insulated roof (e.g. solar panels, tiles or sedum), the sandwich panel is the perfect base. Before going ahead with these plans, however, you first need to calculate whether your construction is actually strong enough. If you would like to know more about this, get in touch with our technical team. They will be more than happy to talk you through your options.
Insulation = savings.
FALK insulated roofing is a great way to insulate your building and reduce your energy consumption – which can result in considerable savings over the life cycle of the building.
It will come as no surprise to hear that everyone has their own preferences when it comes to insulated roof panels. Here at FALK, we stock a wide range of models. As the inventor of the insulated corrugated panel, we have been using the FALK 1000 GL Roof since the foundation of our company. This panel has since been installed on thousands of roofs in the Netherlands. We also have two versions of the insulated trapezoidal sheet – the FALK 1000 TR Roof and the FALK 1100 TR3+ Roof.
We offer two types of insulated roof panels: standard sandwich panels and EKO elements. Standard sandwich panels consist of a PIR insulation core sandwiched between two steel sheets; EKO elements have a layer of aluminium foil instead of an interior skin made of steel. This eliminates the sandwich effect, which is why we call it an element. Although the aluminium foil is resistant to ammonia vapours emitted in stables, it is easily scratched and the finish is not as sleek as a standard sandwich panel. All our insulated panels are also available as EKO elements. These are the FALK 1000 GL EKO, the FALK 1000 TR EKO and the FALK 1100 TR3+ EKO.
There are many types of roofs out there, each of which can be subdivided into several varieties. Below is a brief overview of the most common types of roof, in which we also explain whether they can be insulated with FALK roof panels. Generally speaking, our insulated panels can be installed on any type of roof with a pitch of 4 degrees or more.
Gable roof with insulated panels:
The gable roof is the most common type of roof. A steeply pitched roof creates additional living space underneath the structure of the roof. Gable roofs consist of two opposing sloping roof surfaces, connected by the ridge – the point at which the two sides meet. The sides are constructed at an angle, onto which wooden or steel trusses are mounted. The insulated panels can then be attached to these trusses using special panel fixing screws. They are usually fastened to the highest parts of the insulated roof panels to prevent water and dirt accumulation.
Pent roof with insulated panels:
The pent roof is also a common type of roof. Unlike the gable roof, the pent roof is a sloping roof with a singular surface. Here, too, the sides of the building are constructed at an angle, onto which wooden or steel trusses are mounted. The insulated roof panels can be fixed to these trusses using special screws designed for sandwich panels. These are available in different colours.
Hip roof with insulated panels:
A hip roof is actually a gable roof, but with four sloping roof surfaces (sides) that meet at the ridge. The surfaces of a hip roof usually have the same pitch. This type of roof can also be effectively insulated with roofing panels. The main challenge here lies in connecting the surfaces of the roof.
Mansard roof with insulated panels:
A mansard roof is a gable roof where the upper part is less steep than the lower part. This creates more space under the roof structure than a standard gable roof. FALK insulated roofing panels are particularly suitable for creating a mansard roof. Similar to the hip roof, the interface between the roof surfaces is the main challenge.
Flat roof with insulated panels:
A flat roof is a roof that has a horizontal roof surface. At FALK, we consider a roof to be flat if the roof pitch is between 2 and 4 degrees. A minimum pitch of 2 degrees ensures good drainage. The advantage of a flat roof is that it is easy to install accessories on it. It also allows you to get the most out of the space in a building because you do not have to contend with sloping roof surfaces. Flat roofs can also be fitted with insulated panels.

FALK 1000 GL Roof
Classic yet ultra stylish. The FALK 1000 GL features the traditional corrugated profile, but in a modern, fire-proof and insulated design.
FALK 1000 TR Roof
Aesthetic and strong. The FALK 1000 TR is a robust roof panel for pitched roofs from 4 degrees. A versatile panel for every sector.
FALK 1100 TR3+ Roof
The FALK 1100 TR3+ is a sandwich panel with a working width of 1100mm. Particularly suitable as a support for solar panels
FALK 1000 GL EKO
The perfect panel for renovating any roof with a pitch of 4 degrees or more. The FALK 1000 GL EKO is an insulated corrugated sheet.
FALK 1000 TR EKO
The FALK 1000 TR EKO is a roofing element with a five-crown trapezoidal profile. The inside is finished with a stucco aluminium foil.
FALK sandwich panels are available in almost every colour imaginable. In most cases, the exterior skin is finished with a high-quality coating manufactured by Tata Steel (Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® or Colorcoat Prisma®); the standard finish for the interior skin is FALK Off-White. This is similar to RAL 9002. But you can also select your own colour from the colour library. Discover all our colours on this page. Here you can also request a colour sample!
In most circumstances, solar panels can be installed on FALK insulated roof panels, but this will depend on the chosen span of the panels and the substructure. Always seek professional advice in order to avoid any potential problems. Special brackets are available that can be mounted on our sandwich panels. For more information, visit our page on solar panels.
FALK insulated roof panels are available with a cutback; this is a standard production option. You can choose the length of the cutback yourself, which generally varies between 50mm and 300mm.
