Our Green Building Materials

At LUX Architectural Products, not only are we committed to creating stunning, durable, and innovative cladding products, but there are also many environmental benefits to choosing our proprietary cladding technologies for your next building. All LUX Architectural Products are made from steel which is a sustainable green building material and is 100% recyclable at the end of a buildings life cycle. In fact, steel is “the most recycled material on the planet, more than all other materials combined”[1]. For this reason, there are a number of significant factors that contribute to the green environmental choice of using steel for your cladding, roofing and building needs.

A ‘green building material‘ is any material that contributes to the goal of improved sustainability by reducing the environmental impact of the building process. These include, but are not limited to, materials that are:

  • Natural or renewable
  • Locally available
  • Recycled
  • Recyclable or reusable
  • Salvaged, remanufactured, or refurbished
  • Durable
  • Efficiently manufactured

LUX Architectural products meet many of the requirements for green building materials. We produce long-lasting, durable steel products that are able to be recycled and salvaged to increase the efficiency in which they are manufactured.

Although some green building materials might be more expensive initially than cheaply-made, traditional materials, the long-term savings with sustainable green building products are extremely beneficial in a number of ways. These include cost savings on utility bills, lower construction costs, higher property values, and less money spent on costly repairs and maintenance. 

At LUX we are always investing in our product and customers so check back often as we will have new information on certifications, LEED Points and innovative design developments.
