Tekto and the environment

We offer applied innovation and technology in energy conservation and in environmental protection through thermal insulating product of low carbon footprint of production and high energy conservation in the passage of time.

  • Better thermal insulation
  • Reduced fuel consumption during the transportation of the product since it is lightweight.
  • More thermal insulating: Less volume for the same thermal insulating performances.

  • Reduced “dead” load in the construction

  • Reduced water needs for the preparation of the mixture
  • Reduced water retention during mixing
  • Easy to mix and pump
  • Easy and fast application
  • Easy transportation (lightweight)

  • Improves structural integrity of the building in case of earthquakes
  • Fire resistance: A2-s1, d0

The concept of sustainability when applied to buildings can be evaluated from two converging points of view. From one side, it is possible to evaluate the impact that the construction and management of a building will have on its whole environment, while from the other side it is possible to analyze specifically all the technologies that have been used during construction, studying the individual environmental im pact of each component and every material type that has been used. The evaluation of sustainability of an individual product is extremely complex. It is not measurable according to just one or more “eco” characteristic, but it is also related to all the factors that interact with the product and the environment during its lifecycle. This issue is further complicated if we say that the product sustainability evaluation is measured across its whole lifecycle, from the raw material to the finished product. Depending on the actual stage in its lifecycle it can have different environmental impacts. The certification of environmental sustainability is the instrument that allows the declaration of the performances and the environmental impacts that a building has on its territory including its energy consumption. TEKTO products meet the criteria of the environmental sustainability protocols that are used to calculate scores and Leed credits.
