Sustainability

A 100% Recyclable Product

Aluminium is one of the Earth’s most abundant elements. Stryum Aluminium panels are made from 100% aluminium – this means any offcuts and waste is able to be recycled without losing any of the materials natural qualities. The process of re-cycling aluminium also has much lower energy consumption than the recycling of Aluminium/Plastic Composites. There is also less waste and by products when recycling aluminium as opposed to composite materials. Recycling aluminium only uses 5% of the energy required in primary aluminium production – since its inception, aluminium recycling has avoided over 1Billion metric tonnes of CO2 emissions.

The Intelligent Installation System

The Stryum Intelligent Installation System is designed to reduce the number of materials and processes required to install a Stryum Façade. This creates savings in energy and greenhouse emissions throughout the installation process. Time, transport, materials, processes and human resources are all saved with our Intelligent installation System – contributing to a healthier environment overall.

Longer Lasting & Corrosion Resistant

The high quality and unmatched longevity of Stryum aluminium products also makes Stryum a lower maintenance product in general. Longer life span and strong corrosion resistance means that the need to replace panels is less frequent. These benefits contribute to an overall reduction in energy consumption across the Stryum range.

Rainscreen Façade

The Rainscreen facade principle is integral to the Stryum system and it’s installation. Rainscreen facade involves an outer building layer which deflects heat and moisture with a ventilated void behind that facilitates air flow and drainage – minimising environmental impacts and creating a more thermally regulated building interior. Some of the many environmental benefits of applying rainscreen theory include; prevention of thermal bridging, dissipation of solar gain, prevention of internal condensation and mould growth and the creation of a more thermally regulated inner building.

Environmental Benefits of Anodising

Anodising is one of the most environmentally friendly metal finishing processes. The by-products of anodising contain only very small amounts of heavy metals, halogens or volatile organic compounds. The most common by-products of anodising (Aluminium Hydroxide and Aluminium Sulphate) are all recycled into the manufacturing of other industrial products.

Made in Australia

Most Commercial façade materials are manufactured in foreign countries which elevates the use of sea and road freighting, increasing their carbon footprint. Made in Australia, Stryum is shipped directly from the manufacturer to the location where it is intended for use, minimising carbon emissions. Being manufactured in Australia – Stryum also has to comply with Australian environmental regulations in its manufacturing and finishing operations. This allows customers to understand Stryum’s full life cycle and be assured that all is being done to minimise Stryum’s impact on the environment.
