PBR Panels

The Metal Shop PBR Panels

“PBR” stands for “Purlin Bearing Rib” panels. This means that the panels have a larger overlap section that completely overlaps the next panel. This creates more metal to metal contact which yields a stronger connection and more weather-tight metal roof panels.
