GREEN & SUSTAINABLE
ON TOP with sustainable products and systems
Fabral maintains a broad range of product designs and color choices that are not only architecturally appealing but also consistent with “Green Building” guidelines.
Fabral products are manufactured from substrates that utilize a significant amount of recycled material, are 100% recyclable and are coated with High Definition Coating systems which allow many of the colors to reflect a significant amount of heat away from the structure. In fact, many Fabral panels carry the Energy Star® approval for energy efficiency. Fabral panels also help a project earn U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points, which count toward obtaining “Green Building” certification for energy efficient, environmentally-friendly structures.
Metal Roofing is Green
Metal is one of the world’s most recyclable materials and can be renewed and reformed generation after generation. Metal substrates are often recycled, always recyclable — and, because of their constant manufacturing stream, use and reuse, they are good for our environment and our economy.
Every ton of steel that is recycled from Fabral roofs saves 2500 pounds of iron ore, 1400 pounds of coal & 120 pounds of limestone. Metal roofs also offer over twice the life span of an asphalt roof - saving valuable land fill space.
Energy Star® approved roof systems allow buildings to stay cooler and, in turn, use less electricity for air conditioning; which means a reduction in power generation and a reduction of pollutants.
Fabral’s Solar SSR™ system can be integrated with a variety of metal panels and offers a return of investment of 10 years or less. When it comes to generating electricity, Solar SSR offers the highest relative efficiency under high temperature and low light conditions and is up to 30% more efficient than other systems.
Think Sustainability. Think Green.
