What are Insulated Centria Panels?

Centria panels are innovative, durable and provide a high level of performance. Centria combined art, science, and modern manufacturing techniques to develop the Formawall ® line of insulated metal panels. They are available in a variety of colors, profiles, thicknesses, and textures. Read more about this here - http://goo.gl/zSswv. Centria is literally reimagining the building envelope.

During production, Centria was able to reduce the consumption of water, energy and harmful chemicals while focusing more on environmental responsibility. Centria was recognized for this effort by being awarded the Governor's Award from the State of Pennsylvania and the Shades of Green Leadership Award by the Green Building Alliance. In addition, they were the first to offer Cradle to Cradle® Certified building envelope products. For more information, go here - http://www.centriaperformance.com/.

Are Centria Panels Expensive?

Centria offers a variety of metal panel systems, ranging from simple profiles to textured, insulated metal panels with high-end coatings. Centria has options to suit every project budget. Many Centria metal wall panels can be installed more efficiently than competing systems, making the overall installed cost even lower.

    Those in charge of commercial construction have a number of finishing options to consider. One of the more exciting materials sweeping the industry right now is Centria Panels. These lightweight panels offer a number of top benefits that'll satisfy most any building owner. Top benefits like:
    • Cost-effectiveness :  Not only do Centria panels cost less than other cladding options, but they also offer a domino-like effect of savings. Their lower weight equates to a lower installation cost and their extended lifespan gets you more work for your buck.
    • Impressive facade :  It's rare for a company to want to blend in with a nondescript background. No, companies strive to prove to their client-base that they are different. That their solutions are impressive and without true competition. What better way to mirror this claim than by constructing a similarly impressive-looking headquarters? Centria panels come in a variety of designs and colors. They can even be customized to match consistent lines, elegant curves, and fantastic geometric patterns.
    • Pre-insulated :  Of the many designer Centria panel products, there are insulated options tailored to help companies reduce their energy expenses. Such panels can be used on interior and exterior walls, as well as the roof. Centria's unique Formawall Dimension Series even goes beyond the standard energy protection properties to include both thermal efficiency and moisture control.

    The design and construction of large buildings have complex requirements inherent to the greater demands of their size and use, particularly on the types of cladding used. The materials for these larger structures need to be able to not only block moisture, but also have the flex necessary to reflect the movements larger buildings experience. Centria Panels are on the cutting-edge of cladding and roofing solutions to meet these demands for the last century due to their unique benefits like:

    • Their design for better performance : With a standard single-skin metal panel, moisture can be deterred while also including some flexibility, but the poor insulation in these units require builders to add more insulation. Centria panels go this third step further and incorporate insulation within their design. During manufacture, a foamed-in-place core is included for superior thermal protection in addition to its highly effective moisture protection.
    • This lends to higher energy-efficiency :  Having this insulation being a part of their design also ensures that the entire wall or roofing surface receives a uniform insulation covering. This prevents insulation from otherwise settling and compacting, which reduces energy-efficient properties.
    • A cost-efficient solution : Not only do Centria panels have a more efficient design, but they also carry a lower price tag than many other similar cladding options. Plus, their longer lifespan makes them a much more budget-conscious solution due to its need for more infrequent maintenance and replacement.
    • A variety of options for aesthetics :  Centria panels are available in a great variety of styles and colors. This makes them a a great choice for creating a unique and pleasing look for any commercial (or residential) structure.

    When deciding what brand of paneling to use on a new project, there are several factors to consider: is the paneling cost-effective; labor costs, longevity of materials, how well they actually work. With Centria panels, you simply can't go wrong.

    Centria's prefabricated panels come in all shapes and sizes and can be customized to the customer's preferences. Best of all, installing the panels has never been easier. Because of their simplicity in construction, less labor can translate into more cost-savings for you.

    Despite the ease of installation, Centria panels deliver the same great look as more expensive counterparts. Whether you want the panel to curve, or you're looking for a mosaic look--just about any style or design can be achieved.

    Centria panels are weather resistant, with a very small carbon footprint, yet still able to fulfill modern architectural requirements.

    With every winter getting colder, and every summer getting hotter, the cost of keeping a building warm or cool has skyrocketed. Using foam and composite insulation materials surrounded by a layer of metal, buildings can expect to cut the typical cost of electricity due to thermal insulation. Sustainability is but one of the major selling points of Centria products.
