What Our Customers Are Saying
At A Better Panel, we work outside the box to help our customers meet their needs. Henk Oosterkamp, a Coaldale Alberta local, needed to make several calf shelters using some tube steel he had laying around. We worked with Henk to create a design that would not only build 10 individual shelters for his calves but also combine to create a small barn during the colder seasons.
Application & Usage
Whatever your building needs are, we will work with you to find quality and cost-effective solutions to complete your project. We can supply a complete building materials package if needed, including walls, roof, doors, windows, fasteners, flashings, extrusions and other accessories.

And SO MUCH MORE!
A Better Panel’s Tank Advantage
One of our unique applications is the use of single-skin, paper-backed panels to insulate liquid storage tanks of various sizes for today’s demanding energy sector. This process offers many of the same advantages of our double skin panel including high insulation values, moisture and chemical resistance and enhanced thermal performance.
Our panels are manufactured under factory controlled conditions. A Better Panel’s production process is continuous, providing consistent quality throughout the entire production order and enabling panel lengths from 6’ up to 40’.
Our panels are manufactured by a process called foamed or poured in place:
Continuous top and bottom metal sheets are formed in various widths and profiles.
Sheets enter the conveyor and at the same time liquid foam is injected into the cavity between the sheets. The foam expands and bonds to the metal sheets.
The panels are cut to length by an automated cross cut saw.
The panels are cooled, cured, and packaged for shipment.
Other Advantages Include:
Various material types including aluminum, stainless steel, galvalume and pre-painted galvalume
Various profiles including standard utilidor and corrugated. We can also offer tank panel without any profile if required
Many of today’s tanks operate under extreme temperature conditions – A Better Panel now offers a high temperature foam system designed to maintain its properties at an operating temperature up to 150°C or 300° F
Various panel thicknesses from 1.5" up to 6"
Ease of installation
We are able to offer a urethane foam system that is formulated with recycled plastic material and soybean oil, a renewable raw material, and is expanded without any ozone-depleting substances. This system can be used with any of our standard building products, as well as with all of our tank panel applications (except where high-temperature service is required).
