Welcome to the Home of Steel: the Isopan world on show at MADE Expo 2019
MADE Expo, the International Trade Show for Architecture and the Construction Industry, is back in Milan from March 13 to 16: Isopan is present in the Home of Steel, the booth that represents the synergy of the expertise of all Manni Group companies.
Isopan, subsidiary of Manni Group, is a world leader in the production of insulating sandwich panels for roofs and walls intended for construction in the commercial, industrial, civil, agricultural and cold chain sectors at international level. Isopan has always been committed to the innovation of construction products and services, with particular focus on improving the performance of buildings in terms of safety, energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Its products contribute to achieving prerequisites and credits needed for LEED and BREEAM certifications, the international standards that measure the efficiency and sustainability of buildings, and since 2019 it has received the DECLARE label for two of its products: LEAF and Green Roof.
Isopan works in Italy through 2 production plants and in the world with 6 foreign subsidiaries.
Isopan participates to MADE Expo 2019 together with the other companies headed by Manni Group: the Home of Steel is more than just an exhibition booth, it’s a pavilion in which form and content coincide and each Group’s company has contributed to its realization by combining the different shapes that steel can take.
Three leading Isopan products are on display in the Home of Steel, created thanks to the partnership with many main players in the sector: the ISOPIANO panel, finished with white paint that makes up the central tower of the stand; an example of the Arkwall ventilated facade system; 4 square metres of extensive Green Roof that hosts the ISOSKY flat roof window.
Isopan and INPEK: Arkwall
In partnership with INPEK, Isopan has designed Arkwall, the ventilated facade system that combines the thermal insulation qualities of sandwich panels with the aesthetic value of architectural facade panels: the variety of materials and colours available allows the designer to express all his creativity in the building’s project.
Arkwall is made up of a series of layers mechanically constrained to the external walls of the building by metal supports, and it guarantees both insulation and ventilation, two fundamental aspects concerning the comfort of living.
INPEK, South Tyrolean company, has been recognized in Italy and internationally for over 18 years as one of the most important companies in the distribution, research and marketing of architectural panels for ventilated facades and exterior cladding. It was one of the first companies to introduce HPL facade panels in the Italian market: the knowledge of materials and the know-how gained in almost two decades of activity allows us to offer users cutting-edge technical, design and architectural solutions respecting the environment.
Isopan and Velux: ISOSKY
The synergy with the Danish Velux, founded in 1941 and now a world leader in the sector of skylights, has allowed us to design ISOSKY: a window applicable to all Isopan flat roof solutions.
At the entrance of the Home of Steel there is an example of an extensive green roof that houses ISOSKY: the perfect combination of Isopan sandwich panel and Velux window facilitates its on-site installation and ensures the absence of thermal dispersion and water infiltration, exploiting the maximum natural light in the indoor spaces.
Isopan and Daku: Green Roof
The advantages offered by a Green Roof are many: thermo-acoustic insulation, reduction of heat loss, water retention, bioclimatic improvement, protection of the building roof, increase in the usable green area.
Isopan's Green Roof solution, developed in collaboration with DAKU Italia, is an integration of the green roof system on a flat roof made with a PVSteel sandwich panel. Depending on the design features and the needs of the client, two solutions are possible: intensive and extensive Green Roof.
The extensive Green Roof is indicated to cover large buildings and it hosts very resistant colonizing vegetation (mosses, grasses and succulents) that needs the minimum maintenance. On the other side, intensive Green Roof is like a traditional garden: in fact it is possible to grow all kinds of plants, from lawns to shrubs and vegetables. In this case it is necessary to provide for moderate maintenance with regular watering.
The plant material to be installed on the insulating panels for green roofs is supplied by the partner Daku Italia: the Venetian company, which in the last 25 years has built over 1,200,000 square meters of green roofs. In 2003 he obtained from Daku Germany the patent for the production of the materials of his roof garden systems and today it is one of the main developers and producers of green roofs nationally.
The Green Roof solution has also obtained the DECLARE label from the International Future Living Institute. First company in Italy to achieve this goal, Isopan once again places itself at the forefront in terms of sustainability and circular economy.
ISOPIANO is a sandwich panel for roof and walls used in industrial buildings.
In the Home of Steel it is painted white and is represented in the central tower. Thanks to its smooth surface, ISOPIANO lends itself to be enriched with special finishes.
The Home of Steel is in the HALL 06 - STAND F01 G06 of Milan Fairgrounds, Rho.
