Trespa® Meteon® - Good education starts in a sustainably built school

An educational institution reflects its staff, students and visitors, and so every school building requires its own unique look. Since budgets are often tight, sustainability and low maintenance requirements are essential. As a result, many schools all over the world have chosen Trespa® Meteon® for many applications, including façade cladding, façade elements, canopies and bicycle sheds. Whether for a new building or a renovation, Trespa has the ideal solution for the school of tomorrow.

1. Maximum design freedom

Give your school its own image. Trespa’s wide product range enables you to combine colours or contrast them with other parts of the school building. The Trespa® Meteon® Matt finish even lets you create a design with a natural look.

2. Guaranteed product quality

Trespa never stops learning. All Trespa® products are tested under extreme conditions. One of which is exposure of the panels to a climate (sun, rain and humidity) equal to the climate that prevails in Florida. The combination of weather resistance, colour stability and robustness enables Trespa to issue a tenyear limited product warranty.

3.Impact resistance

Trespa® Meteon® is highly scratch and impact resistant and withstands any wear due to daily use, even in high-traffic and exposure areas at large and busy schools.

4. Easy to install and machine

The edges of Trespa® Meteon® do not require extra finishing; smooth edges can be achieved without further machining. Furthermore, a large range of visible and concealed fixing systems is available allowing Trespa® Meteon® panels to be used in a variety of school-related applications.

5. Low maintenance and easy to clean

Your school of tomorrow will remain just as attractive as it is today. The closed, integrated surface of Trespa® Meteon® practically withstands dirt accumulation, keeping the product smooth and easy to clean and ensuring that the school maintains its own unique look. Contamination such as crayon, graffiti and even water-resistant markers can be easily removed if properly treated.

See www.trespa.info for cleaning and maintenance instructions.
