Sustainable construction in aluminium

With the movement towards sustainable building, our Kalzip® aluminium based products, Nature Roof in particular, provide solutions relevant to practically every project.

Aluminium is a material that is infinitely recyclable and remarkably plentiful, the planet’s most abundant metallic element in fact.

Almost three quarters of all the aluminium that has ever been produced is still in use today. Approximately 90% of aluminium used in transport and construction and over 60% of that used in beverage cans is recovered. Recycling Kalzip sheets, as with all aluminium, requires 95% less energy than primary production with no loss of quality or volume. This prevents an estimated 80 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year globally.

Our aluminium building systems can make a major contribution to the creation of buildings that are sustainable, not only during construction but also through the use phase and end of life and recycling. Especially with the excellent thermal performance and long, low maintenance life that both come as standard with every Kalzip system. Even Kalzip’s light weight has an environmental dimension – requiring less material in the supporting structure and saving energy during transportation and construction.
