More and more customers are concerned about the sustainability of the products they use. Construction is no exception: it´s an important sector for limiting greenhouse gas emissions, reducing the carbon footprint and influencing climate change.
It is estimated that 40% of total energy consumption is absorbed by buildings. Therefore, the design of more efficient buildings is crucial to protect the environment.
From this point of view, it´s important to promote dry construction. This construction technology is attracting the attention of the market because it industrializes the construction process and brings useful innovations to the sector to meet sustainability objectives.
Dry construction systems see the construction site simply as an assembly site, for the horizontal placement of large structures and the joining of existing elements, which have been industrially prefabricated elsewhere, in a controlled manner and in accordance with the highest quality standards. The benefits come in many ways to the investment of the buildings and equally to the environment and sustainability:
Buildings with steel structure and insulating panel are light and ductile. The lightness of the construction is obtained thanks to the polyurethane core of the panel and the ductility through the steel and its alloy that guarantees the absorption of seismic energy thanks to the high plastic reserves of the steel.
The steel of the structure and the insulating panel are recyclable and reusable materials; in the case of the steel structure, it is 100% recoverable; in the case of the insulating panel, it can simply be disassembled and reassembled elsewhere without the need for modifications or waste generation.
Natural resources are significantly reduced. Dry construction gains its name in part from the absence of the use of water at the construction site, the insulating panels arrive at the construction site and are placed on the structure without the use of concrete. Not to mention that it generates no construction waste or residues.
Project components, such as beams, pillars, as well as the entire steel structure, and its roof and façade, in the case of insulating panels, can simply be dismantled and reassembled elsewhere without the need for modifications or waste generation.
Concrete structures are vulnerable to external agents and require additional investment to offer durability to these agents.
Steel and polyurethane are materials that are not chemically vulnerable to external agents. To combat rust, the steel of the structure and the steel sheet of the insulating panel is treated with galvanizing processes or application of protective paints depending on the environmental aggressiveness.
