New Green Products

Looking to make your building environmentally friendly, safe and energy-saving?  Take a look at these new products in the market today!

If your looking for a product that is energy-saving and a daylighting system, consider Cambridge Architectural’s Solucent daylighting mesh shading system.  It’s developed to meet the ever-increasing sustainability needs facing architects today but without sacrificing beauty in design.  The system combines the aesthetic of architectural mesh with its shading and daylighting capabilities to create a one-of-a-kind energy and light management solution.  This system reduces solar heat gain by blocking the sun, leading to significant savings on cooling costs!

FreedomGray Copper Roof Drainage Systems from Berger Building Products Inc. is a distinctive gutter system formed from Revere FreadomGray 16-ounce architectural copper sheet coated on both sides with a unique, patented tin-zinc alloy.  FreedomGray offers all the advantages of copper and provides an environmentally safe finish with a soft, naturally weathering earth-tone gray colour.

Green flooring systems created by Vulcraft’s Ecospan give architects the option to go greener by using recycled steel.  The system uses 99 percent recycled material in the joists and 70 percent recycled material in the decking.  The composite design allows for longer span, lightweight shallow joists and offer greater rigidity. 

Fabral’s Solar SSR is a standing-seam metal roof system that harvests energy from the sun.  The Solar SSR, a photovoltaic solar laminate, produces electricity when exposed to sunlight and offers a green solution for metal roofing applications.  Electricity generated by the laminates is fed through the electrical system into the power grid.  The flexibility and durability of these laminates make them ideal for metal roofs, where expansion, contraction and curving are considerations.  The panel/laminate bond has been created to withstand winds up to 160 mph.

An adjustable cladding system that has been created by C.R. Laurence Co. Inc. which is a deluxe wet seal wall panel cladding system that provides the extra strength required when large panels are being used.  The mounting system simplifies design, installation and panel alignment which allow individual panels to be removed without the need of removing surrounding panels to gain access.  Interlocking mounting clips aid in panel-to-panel alignment and at the same time, allow for panel expansion, contraction and seismic movement without buckling or undue stress.  The mounting clips are free to slide along the frame’s length making design and erection of the building’s supporting members a simplified task.  The cladding system can be used for exteriors and interiors.
