CENTRIA is a world leader in custom-engineered exterior architectural metal wall and roof systems for new and retrofit commercial and industrial construction projects. Products include insulated metal composite wall and roof panels, thin composite panels, and field-assembled metal panels and accessories.
CENTRIA combines engineering expertise, fabrication capabilities and practical construction experience to meet the aesthetic and functional challenges facing building owners, architects, engineers and contractors today.
Responding to a need in the industry to build more efficient buildings and combat thermal and moisture problems, CENTRIA has developed solutions for advanced thermal and moisture protection.
THERMAL AND MOISTURE PROTECTION
One CENTRIA solution to thermal and moisture control is its Formawall® Dimension Series® insulated metal composite panel, which offers unmatched advanced thermal and moisture protection. The panel has a one-piece design that permits a complete, thermally-efficient, high-performance exterior wall to be installed quickly and economically. The unique design of the horizontal joint is pressure-equalized and provides uninterrupted air, water and vapor barriers.
INSULATED METAL COMPOSITE WALL PANELS
An ongoing commitment to listening to the needs of the industry has helped CENTRIA launch new product and design options including the Formawall Dimension Series, an insulated metal composite panel available in varying profiles, reveals and thicknesses, with several integration options such as windows, louvers and sunshades. Also available are the Concept Series™ interchangeable concealed fastener exterior wall panel profiles offering infinite design possibilities.
CENTRIA newest product launch is Formawall® Graphix Series™, an insulated metal composite panel with segmented joints that creates the appearance of a multi-panel design with a single panel.
SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND RECYCLABLE BUILDING MATERIALS
Recognizing the importance of environmentally responsible building, CENTRIA product design focuses on energy efficiency, sustainable design and utilizing recyclable materials. CENTRIA is a member of the US Green Building Council and the Cool Roof Rating Council, as well as being an ENERGY STAR® partner.
Formawall Dimension Series and Versawall® exterior metal panels are Cradle-to-Cradle Silver certified and the EcoScreen™ perforated screenwall product was recently certified Cradle-to-Cradle Gold. The certification process is currently underway for their new Formawall® Graphix Series. This certification process, administered by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), evaluates a material or product’s ingredients – and the complete formulation for human and environmental health impacts throughout its lifecycle – as well as its potential for being truly recycled or safely composted.
