Sustainability and Net-Zero Energy Building
Building professionals and owners today share a
newfound enthusiasm for envelope performance and netzero building.
Driving this focus are mandates for green building, a focus on energy efficiency and recognized ROI.
Better building envelopes can make a world of difference, with
healthier working environments, significant energy cost savings,
reduced carbon footprint, and contribute towards Net-Zero Energy
How do metal insulated panels fit in?
- Energy efficiency. IMPs have a core of
continuous, rigid insulation for industry leading R- and U- values
with superior airtightness performance.
- Indoor environmental quality. IMPs help ensure
a stable interior environment.
- Recycled and Recyclable. The exterior skins
contain a substantial amount of recycled content, and the panels
themselves are recyclable.
- Recycled, low-weight materials. Made with
recaptured metals, IMPs weigh only 3 pounds per square foot,
reducing transport and installation energy.
- Eased construction. IMPs are simple to detail
and attach, reducing schedules and installation errors.
- Life-cycle benefits. IMPs last as long as the
service life of a typical commercial building. The durable panels
also reduce operational costs for energy and maintenance, and offer
multiple end-of-life reuse options.
- Building certification and green
targets. IMPs contribute to LEED
certification programs and the path to Net-Zero Energy
