“Awareness of sustainability has become an unavoidable value worldwide. We at Gail try to add new concepts to our work in order to contribute to the environment. We reuse all manufacturing waste. Our infrastructure prevents the release of dust into the atmosphere and reuses heat from drying kilns. In addition, solid management of waste such as wood and cardboard completes the action package. The KeraGail system is also closely aligned with sustainability concepts, from project to design implementation, to the actual production and durability. The system’s ceramic panels are composed of 15-20% recycled material. Our aluminum profiles are 100% recyclable.
Energy Efficiency: The system effectively contributes to reducing electricity consumption through air conditioning systems, by making it possible to install smaller, low power air-conditioners. According to Construlink, studies showed a 50% saving in air conditioning. Maintenance and cleaning: KeraGail has a shelf life of 60 years and is self-cleaning. This reduces virtually all need for facade cleaning, avoiding excessive water consumption and detergent use.
Pollution Reduction: Every 1,000m² of KeraGail is equivalent to the contribution of 70 medium-sized trees to reducing air pollution thanks to our revolutionary Hydrotect.
No waste generation: The KeraGail system is tailor-made for each job. Therefore, it virtually reduces waste generationat construction sites to zero. LEED Certification: The KeraGail system contributes to LEED certification with up to 18 points, including points for energy and atmosphere analysis, materials and resources, environmental quality, and innovation and design.
Aqua Certification – Vanzolini Foundation: Choosing KeraGail as cladding will help obtain Acqua certification. In addition to the benefits already discussed, KeraGail contributes to receiving and keeping the Aqua Certification. As it is a low-maintenance system with 100% recyclable materials, it has an estimated shelf life of 60 years. Its durability means low maintenance costs, low environmental impact and reduced use of natural resources.”
