Moon Township, Pa., Feb. 2, 2017— CENTRIA, a leader in architectural metal wall systems, is proud to announce a groundbreaking sustainability enhancement to its industry-leading Formawall line of insulated metal panels (IMPs) with the elimination of halogens from the product’s insulating foam core. The latest evolution of Formawall enables the architectural community to push the envelope further and create a more sustainable building environment.
“This voluntary decision reinforces our commitment to continuously—and proactively—meet the sustainability and performance needs of our customers,” said Kim Rager, Product Manager - Insulated Metal Panels. “CENTRIA is proud to be the only manufacturer in the United States to currently offer IMPs with halogen-free foam as a standard product.”
Formawall with Halogen-Free Foam aligns building owners and architects with today’s ever-evolving sustainability goals and standards. The product has recently earned a health product declaration (HPD) through the HPD Collaborative. This self-disclosed transparency program provides in-depth ingredient reporting for an exceptional level of transparency for architects and building owners.
“Our customers today want to know and understand the material ingredients in their products to create a more sustainable indoor and outdoor environment,” added Rager. “Removing halogen from our architectural line of insulated metal panels is an integral first step toward changing the status quo, and this is just the beginning.”
Launched in 1999 and hailed the “product of the millennium,” Formawall Dimension Series was the first 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 for some of the most distinguished aesthetics on the market. With the introduction of Formawall with Halogen-Free Foam, CENTRIA is paving the way for future innovations and additional benefits to the architectural community.
