When the product life has been completed and it is time for replacement, all material can be sent to a recycling facility or metal scrap dealer for re-use.
Efficient Construction
NorthClad® AL Series panels are available in an infinite variety of finishes from our standard line of colors to custom matches in any shade. There are options for an SRI value greater than 29 as required to qualify for LEED® Sustainable Sites Credit 7 (Reduction of Heat Island Effect). These specified colors will reflect the sun's energy and reduce heat absorption, in turn minimizing the impact on microclimates and disruption of the surrounding habitat.
Locally Fabricated
Lastly, our panels are manufactured in the great Pacific Northwest by a local workforce. We proudly promote domestic labor and provide jobs in and around the Pacific Northwest to support our local and federal economy.
