Lose weight and feel better this new year!
As we move into the new year and look back on the excesses of Christmas, it’s fair to say that more than a few of us have weight loss in mind. In this sense, we’re no different, as we’ve been thinking about the transformative effects of weight loss when specifying wall cladding and decorative panels. And just as dragging yourself out of bed is a little harder when you’ve spent the past month gorging on turkey, chocolates and booze, so too does any building which has older cladding suffer the consequences of being loaded with too much weight.
Alternative products are typically very heavy, and this can have a huge impact on the imposed load on a structure, not to mention the associated increase in CO2 emissions and increased strain on transportation and handling. Traditional means of achieving water-resistant and hygienic surfaces have leaned heavily (pun intended!) on materials such as ceramic tiling and high pressure laminated wall panels, but these materials are heavy, expensive, tough to maintain, hard to replace and difficult to install - and that’s to name just a few of the issues with them.
Komastyle PVC cladding is lightweight, durable, and robust while retaining all of the high-spec qualities such as being fire retardant, chemical resistant and made from 100% recyclable PVC. Added to this, it comes with a 20-year warranty and is extremely easy to install and maintain. The cladding is also available in a wide range of colours and textures to ensure it fits seamlessly with your design.
Moreover, Komastyle recognises that sustainability should be at the heart of every design moving forward as we strive for a greener future. We support the aim to eliminate single-use plastics, and we’re proud to say that Beplas is Greenline sustainability accredited and members of VinylPlus®. Our products are all 100% recyclable, VOC free, contain no formaldehyde, asbestos, lindane, PCB, PCP, CFCs, cadmium or other heavy metals. The lightweight nature of our products also means fewer deliveries to building sites, and their 20-year guarantee means that the environment won’t be impacted by continuous renewals.
Put simply, losing weight is a win-win, as using lighter products such as the Elite Komadur is more cost-effective and is better for the planet. Our new generation of cladding is safe, appealing, and doesn’t cost the Earth. An alternative to heavy cladding has arrived that won’t leave your build overstuffed and fit to burst like so many of us after the holidays!
