CENTRIA has announced a sustainability enhancement to its Formawall line of insulated metal panels (IMPs) with the elimination of halogens from its insulating foam core. The evolution of Formawall enables the architectural community to push the envelope further to create a more sustainable building environment, while delivering performance and more.
“This voluntary decision reinforces our commitment to meet the sustainability and performance needs of our customers,” says Kim Rager, product manager, insulated metal panels. “CENTRIA is proud to offer IMPs with halogen-free foam as a standard product.”
Formawall with Halogen-Free Foam aligns building owners and architects with the ever-evolving sustainability goals and standards. The product has earned a health product declaration (HPD) through the HPD Collaborative. This self-disclosed transparency program provides ingredient reporting for a level of transparency for architects and building owners.
“Our customers want to know and understand the material ingredients in their products to create a sustainable indoor and outdoor environment,” adds Rager. “Removing halogen from our architectural line of insulated metal panels is a first step toward changing the status quo, and this is just the beginning.”
Launched in 1999, Formawall Dimension Series was an architectural insulated composite wall system to provide variable panel thickness, variable reveal depths and a variety of panel profiles. The product line also encompasses Formawall Graphix Series, which provides the option to segment Formawall IMPs along the module width, disguising a single panel as multiple smaller panels. With the introduction of Formawall with Halogen-Free Foam, CENTRIA is paving the way for future innovations and additional benefits to the architectural community.
