MetecnoPIR is committed to the continual improvement of our environmental policies and maintaining sustainable building practices, evident throughout involvement with PACIA’s Sustainability Leadership Development Framework (link is external). The full range of MetecnoPIR products are designed and tested for Australian conditions and developed with the health of the Australian environment and community in mind. All of our products are non-ozone depleting with best-in-class thermal efficiency, which saves in energy costs and benefits the environment.
The COLORBOND® steel skins of all MetecnoPIR insulated panels are 100% recyclable and have been made by BlueScope®steel with 10-30% recycled scrap (link is external). MetecnoPIR actively source where possible production inputs that are either recycled or recyclable to reduce our environmental footprint. We collaborate with supply partners and research institutions on a range of programs to evaluate opportunities for innovation, and continually invest in the latest technologies to support this
MetecnoPIR insulated panels are installed by a combination of screws, rivets and adhesives; and can be easily dissembled to be reused and reconstructed for other applications. The mastic and or silicone sealant which hold the panels together can be easily removed, whilst the screws and rivets which fix the panels to the steel supports and flashings can be unfastened and panels removed and reused on other building sites.
MetecnoPIR insulated panels contribute significantly to reducing the amount of energy used to keep Australian buildings within comfortable temperature range, as they provide a roof/ceiling and external/internal wall in one highly insulated composite product. By nature of their composition, MetecnoPIR panels also deliver continuous insulation that reduces or eliminates thermal bridging, compared to standard framed construction methods which can have disrupted insulation (which has significant contribution of heat loss/gain through thermal bridging).
MetecnoPIR insulated panels greatly reduce the amount of material used in the construction process, which reduces landfill over standard framed construction methods due to custom project specific lengths which eliminates sites waste. In our production facilities, we have a range of initiatives to actively reclaim and convert production waste to minimise our impact on the environment.
MetecnoPIR insulated panels use non-ozone depleting substances to form its’ insulating core, helping to promote a sustainable construction method to protect Australia’s future. These panels provide a consistent level of insulation that is impervious to compression, water vapor, vermin, termites and rot, which decreases the risks of structural damage whilst improving the living quality for Australia.
These insulated panel products also contribute to Australia through their ‘buildability;’ as they significantly shorten the construction times, which provides economic, social and environmental benefits to the community.
As Australia’s largest manufacturer of PIR insulated panels, MetecnoPIR allows you to benefit from our global experience coupled with local dedication to Australia. Through purchasing high performance building products designed specifically for Australian conditions and using Australian inputs including BlueScope COLORBOND® steel, you are not only reducing your impact on the environment, but you are supporting Australian industries.
