Frequent Asked Questions
A Pre Engineered Building (PEB) is one in which the structural elements are constructed off-site in a factory, based on a predetermined structural drawing. The structural pieces are subsequently transported to the construction site for installation. The construction procedure is quick. It takes 30 to 50 percent less time to construct a PEB than a conventional brick and mortar structure.
Prefabricated structures can last anywhere between five and one hundred years, depending on their technical specifications.
PEBs are primarily composed of steel. The primary load-bearing structures, such as columns and beams, are fabricated from MS steel or galvanised steel. For wall and roof cladding, we employ corrugated metal sheets that are either single- or double-insulated with polystyrene foam, polyurethane foam, rockwool or glasswool. Doors and windows are available in a variety of materials, including aluminium, steel, and wood. The mezzanine floor, if applicable, is constructed from galvanised decking sheet.

It is commonly believed that PEBs are not a suitable substitute for their RCC counterparts. This is a complete fabrication. PEBs are superior not only in terms of strength and durability, but also in terms of appearance. PEBs provide for a wide variety of customization, whereas concrete structures are limited.
In terms of cost effectiveness, it would be unfair to examine only the initial expense of PEB construction. The unique selling proposition of PEBs is its long-term cost, which covers the whole cost of durability, maintenance, and recovery over the lifetime of a building. All of this contributes to significantly lower costs than in a typical building. When the initial cost of construction materials is adjusted for inflation over a number of years, it equals the cost of scrap. Depending on the structure’s kind and layout, the building owner will recover the cost of raw materials at par with the initial investment, even if the initial cost is larger.
There are further forms of benefits. Consider PEB-constructed schools, hospitals, and office buildings. Since PEBs are completed faster than RCC, you can start your business sooner and begin recouping construction expenses.
EPACK Prefab is one of the largest makers of pre-engineered / prefab structure buildings with its own steel fabrication centre, sandwich panel production, doors, windows, and flashing. We are a provider of turnkey solutions and do not rely on outsourcing, allowing us to maintain complete control over product quality and project deadlines.
Each panel has a specific function. Which panel to consider is dependent on the building type and intended use. For instance, if thermal insulation is of the utmost necessity when constructing a cold room, clean room, etc., PUF panels will serve the purpose. If sound insulation is essential, such as in a training room or any institutional facility where fire safety is an issue, then rockwool or glasswool can be used. For temporary installations such as construction site offices, EPS panels are also ideal.
For non-insulated wall and roof cladding, galvanised or corrugated sheets are utilised. Insulated wall panels consist of sandwich panels insulated with PUF, EPS, rockwool or glasswool.
Again, the height of a PEB depends on the application and function of the building. The height range begins at 3 metres and ends at 40 metres, depending on the need and project location.
Again, the clear span range is dependent on the building’s intended use. We can construct clear spans of up to 60 to 80 metres, but doing so will increase the building’s weight and expense. The most economical range is between 7 metres in width and 25 metres in height.
We are capable of designing, manufacturing, and executing projects for any type of construction or manufactured product.
The core insulating layer of PUF panels is placed between two metal sheets. In contrast, PUF slabs refer to the insulation core.
PUF slabs are mostly utilised for floor insulation when the slabs are covered on-site. PUF panels comprise of metal cladding sheets that are applied to walls.
The weight is dependent on the core insulation layer’s thickness and density. It also relies on the sheet metal’s thickness.
No, we don’t. We only deal on PUF Panels.
The whole price relies on the design, application, aesthetics, and configuration of the building. Consequently, we have comparable projects ranging from Rs 300 to Rs 5,000 per square foot, depending on the overall plan and aesthetics.
We carry out industrial, commercial and institutional construction projects. If needed, we provide materials for home construction projects.
Yes, it is possible to install movable cabins on any flat area. They do not necessarily require a base to rest on. Porta cabins are lightweight and easily transportable between locations.
We are capable of performing civil works in-house. Typically, we undertake civil works for large government turnkey projects. On request, we can explore civil work for large-scale PEB projects.
Significantly less time is required to construct a PEB than a conventional structure. The duration of construction varies on the building’s size, composition, and level of detail.
In order to determine the cost of the building, we must also consider the structure’s layout, aesthetics, walls, and roof, in addition to its floor space.
We suggest you to first consult with an architect they will provide you a layout of the building, after receiving the building’s exact layout and specifications, we will be able to provide a cost estimate.
We have a price list for all the various types and thicknesses of panels. Once we understand your needs, we can provide you with an accurate quote.
Yes, rockwool provides excellent soundproofing and fire resistance capabilities.
Yes, panels are ideal for temporary buildings due to their light weight, high insulating features, and resale/scrap value.
We will decide the thickness of the panel after analysing the project’s requirements, such as the ambient temperature at the project site. Other considerations include installation type – whether inside or outside a structure, the type of products to be stored within, the number of times the cold room door will open and close each day, etc. Please contact our staff for further information.
Our panel design has a male/female jointing mechanism with a cam lock so that the panels can survive adverse weather conditions. The robust locking system contributes greatly to the building’s durability.
