Construction infrastructure is in constant flux, from the industrial revolution to the current information age and the endless innovations that seem to be entering the industry on an almost weekly basis. In short, the world is changing, and it is changing quickly. The companies that seem to stand the test of time are those that adapt quickly and are able to stay ahead of the curve when there are paradigm shifts in their sectors and correlated industries.
The past few decades, and more specifically the past few years have brought an aggressive shift towards energy saving (green) technologies and practices. Products such as Aluminum Composite Panels (ACPs) and Cladding Panels have entered the scene and redefined the materials used. All aspects of business are being disrupted by the change, from the standardization of recycling to the more complex and socially responsible investing. Carbon dioxide (CO2) has been under the spotlight for quite some time, yet more and more research points to its deteriorating effects in the welfare of the environment and in result, to its species. The construction industry has played a major role in the emission of embodied carbon, defined as the CO2 emitted during the full life cycle of a product. From the extraction of raw materials to the manufacturing and installation of the construction materials; the impact of a single project includes both embodied carbon within the built environment, and operational carbon generated throughout the life cycle of the structure.
From the beginning of its operation, Alumax Panel has strived to introduce the most innovative and environmentally friendly materials in the market. Research on Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) illustrates the significant sustainability and environmental focus of the material compared to other equivalent cladding products. For instance, Stucco, which is a common material used on building facades, provides a 5-year warranty; Fiber Cement Board’s average warranty is 10 years. However, Alumax Panel’s Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) and Aluminum Composite Panels (ACP) cladding products have warranties that range from a minimum of 15 years to a maximum of 25 years. The longer warranty period is an indication of the long term sustainability of the material which benefits clients by saving maintenance costs for much longer than most alternative products.
Alumax Panel’s arsenal of products also offers exceptional safety features adding more value to your projects. Aluminum Composite Material is abrasion resistant, so you never have to worry about buckling or stress wrinkling. Layered with a weather-resistant coating to prevent corrosion due to acid rain, solvents, UV, moisture and heat, Alumax Panel products are maintenance-free and can handle themselves against nature. Some other amazing features include fire retardant, lightweight and easy to install, abrasion and corrosion-resistant, and wear-resistant.
Aside from the sustainability and technical product features, Alumax Panel’s endless range of color selections makes an architect’s or designer’s dream come true. From matching the Aluminum Composite Panel color with the brand to adding a textured wood design on the façade of a residential building, there are endless possibilities. As a leading supplier of Aluminum Composite Material in Toronto, Ontario, Alumax not only prioritizes design but even more so focuses on the accuracy of its fabrication and installation of the panels to ensure a final result that lasts for decades.
