Biophilic design is being integrated into Australia’s built environment as architects and engineers are considering the building’s embodied energy rating in urban planning. Bonded aluminium panels used as external cladding on these buildings can help create world-class ‘Artitecture’ spaces incorporating biophilic design concepts.
Vitracore G2 is making Australia’s sustainable artistic vision possible when it comes to exterior cladding. As one of the most popular facade cladding products available, here’s how it ticks all the boxes:
Limitless colour range – allows architects and building designers to sustainably explore their creative architecture when working on purpose-built, world-class facilities.
Weatherproofed composition – providing a robust solution in dealing with climate change and floods in the built landscape environment.
Compliance – deemed non-combustible and ticking the fire safety, waterproofing, design intent, insurance, and compliance requirements.
Recyclability – providing an opportunity to significantly enhance environmental performance to achieve a lower embodied energy rating.
Embodied energy rating – secondary aluminium panel processing requires only 5% of the energy consumption from using ‘virgin’ primary aluminium.
Durability – with the highly recognised Kynar 500 PVDF Paint System, which is known for its high durability, optimum resistance to weather, and minimal industrial pollution.
Vitracore G2 aluminium composite panels are suitable for Type A, B and C constructions where non-combustible materials are required, such as mixed-use developments, residential construction, and large-scale government infrastructure projects including hospitals.
Vitracore G2 meets the requirements of both cladding rectification and new building projects.
