Perforated metal for green architectural projects
Sustainable architecture is all about creating buildings that help to save – and don’t cost – the earth. Which is why you’ll find metal is at the core of many green architecture projects.
Metal is one of the most environmentally-friendly materials around, and when you need to meet sustainable targets or are reaching for a Green-star rating, what you build with matters.
Here are some of the great ways that perforated metal can help to boost your project’s green credentials:
It’s recyclable: Perforated metal is most commonly made from aluminium or steel. Both of these types of metal can be recycled and reused again and again, with no loss of quality. It’s the ultimate sustainable building material for all types of green architecture projects, from transport to education, residential renovations to large-scale commercial, retail and residential buildings.
It’s an energy-saver: Ever wondered why so many buildings have a perforated metal facade? Not only does it look good, but the holes that are punched to make perforated metal help to control light, solar heat and ventilation. Which means less reliance on building air conditioning, lighting and better energy savings. Making it a top cladding choice for green architecture projects.
It’s durable: Perforated metal has a long lifecycle – it can be finished with various coatings for increased durability, even in the harshest climate conditions including marine and coastal environments.
It’s made with the environment in mind: Every perforated panel we produce at Arrow Metal is manufactured to strict ISO guidelines on environmental management and compliance. Which means you can specify our perforated metal with green peace of mind, especially if you need to meet sustainable supplier criteria.
