Our innovations in sustainability lead to your environmentally smart inspirations.
CENTRIA is committed to developing products that perform at the highest levels, offer stunning aesthetics and deliver the most advanced practices in sustainability. We are at the forefront of the industry when it comes to environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes and the responsible use of natural resources. We are constantly perfecting ways to lessen the impact of the built environment on the natural one—whether it involves reducing the consumption of water, energy and chemicals during the manufacturing process, improving recycling at our offices or creating some of the industry's most energy efficient products.
For decades, CENTRIA has been a leader in the green movement, having received one of the very first Life Cycle Analysis evaluations for insulated metal panels. As a sustainability leader, we set the pace and challenge others to join us in our quest to think a little differently about building products and how they fit into our world.
Our commitment to sustainability has resulted in some of the most innovative building products on the market today – products that contribute to achieving LEED® points, are manufactured from recycled content, result in less jobsite waste, reduce building heating and cooling costs, as well as lead to decreased maintenance and replacement costs.
As a reflection of our commitment, several of our products—Formawall® Dimension Series Insulated Metal Panels, MetalWrap® Insulated Composite Back-Up Panels, Versapanel® Insulated Metal Panels and Versawall® Insulated Metal Panels—are certified by UL Environment, an independent safety science company, with Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). These EPDs offer a comprehensive, internationally-harmonized report that documents the ways in which each product, throughout its lifecycle, affects the environment. Similar to, but far more robust than, the concept of a "nutrition label," an EPD tells the complete sustainability story of a product.
At CENTRIA, we are committed to excellence and continual improvement. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve the design, engineering and manufacturing of exterior wall and roof systems. In everything we do, we keep aesthetics, performance, value and sustainability top of mind.
CENTRIA's innovations in sustainability don't end at the design and manufacturing stage.

Insulated metal panels are rigid foam sandwiched between two sheets of coated metal. Formawall panels are available in a variety of modules, lengths and reveal combinations. Painted steel facings create the exterior wall aesthetic and work in combination vaith the foam insulation and metal liner to create moisture, air, vapor and thermal barriers. The metal skins offer long-term durability and come in a multitude of colors and finishes.
