Trespa® Meteon® cladding panels brings compelling aesthetic and nearly limitless design possibilities with various colours, rhythms and depths to next-generation architectural claddings. Trespa® Meteon® is a decorative high-pressure compact laminate (HPL) with an integral surface manufactured using Trespa’s unique in-house technology, Electron Beam Curing (EBC). The blend of up to 70% natural fibres and thermosetting resins, manufactured under high pressures and temperatures yields a highly stable, dense panel with good strength-to-weight ratio.
Trespa® Meteon® is a versatile cladding for innovative and functional ventilated façade systems, balconies and sunblind solutions. Trespa® Meteon® panels can be used on their own or in combination with other materials. They are perfect to create one-of-a-kind effects, to determine the look and to underline the qualities of a building. Available in a broad range of colours, finishes, sizes and thicknesses, Trespa® Meteon® brings compelling aesthetic and nearly limitless design possibilities to next-generation architectural claddings. The whole product range comes with a 10-year conditional Product Guarantee.
Trespa® Meteon® performs exceptionally well outdoors and stays looking great for many years. Sun and rain will have no significant effect on the panel’s surface.
The closed surface of Trespa® Meteon® practically withstands dirt accumulation, keeping the product smooth and easy to clean.
Trespa® Meteon® is highly scratch and impact resistant. The panels are consistent, high-density throughout, easily machinable and workable like hardwood.
For facade applications, Trespa® Meteon® is used only as rainscreen, also known as ventilated facade, a building solution with both technical and aesthetic benefits. Ventilated facade systems entail the fixing of panels on a subframe, which is fixed to the structural facade. Joints between panels can remain open. The cavity between the rainscreen cladding and the insulation or construction allows for ventilation to flow through from the ventilation inlets and outlets. These assemblies result in a variety of advantages. First, a chimney effect draws air through the cavity, aiding in the removal of heat and moisture from rain or condensation. Second, the rainscreen blocks some solar gain and accommodates continuous insulation, considerably reducing air-conditioning. Third, these results are shown to improve comfort within occupied zones. Considered fast to assemble and requiring no wet trades, ventilated facade systems have gained prominence amongst architects, building owners and code officials. An increasing number of projects around the world have used this technique for new constructions, refurbishments, renovations and conservation purposes. For new buildings, rainscreen offers excellent design flexibility, technical advantage, and aesthetic range.
