We punch holes in the concept that perforated metal isn't really so green. Let's recycle this discussion on green design and perforated solutions:
Q: What's the ultimate green material for design and construction?
A: One that can be recycled easily. One that is made with recycled content. One that minimizes the impact on the environment.
Q: Are there any benefits of perforated over other steel products?
A: There are many: perforated metal dissipates heat, enhances air flow, while at the same time offering visual enhancement and decorative qualities to the overall concept.
Q: What are the prime attributes of perforated that makes it truly green?
A: Perforated minimizes resource depletion due to its recyclability, reduces energy in use, promotes sustainability, and invites innovation in terms of creative design and innovative engineering.
Q: How can Diamond Manufacturing help me make a difference?
A: Please contact us so we can help make your projects as green--and effective--as possible.
The Green Road LEEDS to perforated.
Blending functionality and recyclability, perforated has numerous advantages when it comes to green design and construction. LEED Certification, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System, sets standards and awards points for specified uses of sustainable resources.
Areas where perforated shines include internal systems such as ceilings and walls, exterior cladding, and window treatments. Perforated can be manufactured from up to 100 percent post-consumer steel or aluminum, making it a sustainable and recyclable resource as well.
Enhancing exterior design, perforated controls light penetration/filtration --giving it an edge in regulating heat and light, while managing privacy issues.
Lightweight perforated aluminum ceiling panels have specific sound deadening qualities that make it a designer-friendly, builder-friendly and user-friendly solution for office complexes and smaller spaces alike. It also allows maintenance staff to gain access to wiring and piping with these modular, lightweight ceiling system design. It's enhanced ventilation qualities helps to retard mold and mildew growth, another LEED issue--and they can be easily and effectively cleaned.
Architects, designers, contractors and engineers can all benefit from the multitude of user-friendly and Earth-friendly solutions that perforated offers. It's aesthetic and unique properties are a green light to create, enhance and explore new solutions--and enjoy a multitude of environmental and visually-appealing benefits.
