Exterior Panels Think Trespa

Unique and special:
Trespa Meteon®
Trespa Meteon architectural panels are available in a wide
choice of standard colors, effects and finishes – or they can
be customized to project needs. These panels have the ability
to transform, enhance or even add new dimensions to your
design. Literally thousands of applications around the
world bear testimony to the material’s versatility. Trespa
Meteon is not just beautiful – it is exceedingly robust and
durable so today’s vision will remain tomorrow’s reality.

Proprietary technology
Trespa Meteon is a flat panel, based on thermosetting resins,
homogeneously reinforced with wood based fibers and
manufactured under high pressure and at high temperatures.
The panels have an integrated decorative surface using
proprietary EBC technology.

Trespa Meteon is used for vertical applications like facade

cladding, balcony paneling and a wide range of other

exterior applications. Trespa’s proprietary technology

ensures that Meteon panels are unique in the market today.

Healthier buildings
Trespa Meteon is highly suited for rain screen cladding
systems. These “breathing” systems offer possibilities for
high insulation values and perfect building physics. In hot
conditions, excessive solar heat can be ventilated between
the panels and the insulation materials. This contributes to
a healthy indoor climate.
Arch. Renato Fornaciari, Italy
Design possibilities Easy to keep clean
Trespa gives architects an inspiring view of the future. Trespa Meteon is a low maintenance exterior application that

Safe fire behavior
In a fire, Trespa Meteon does not melt, drip or explode and
retains its stability for a long time. Authorized testing bodies
throughout the world have confirmed that Trespa Meteon
Fire Retardant grade (FR) panels fall within one of the most
favorable fire classes. These panels meet the performance
requirements for a Class A material with regard to Flame
Spread and Smoke Development (ASTM E84).

Building certificates
Trespa Meteon panels in certain thicknesses and installations
have achieved Miami Dade County Notice of Acceptance
(NOA#08-0922.07). Meteon is also GREENGUARD Indoor
Air Quality Certified® and has achieved GREENGUARD
Children & SchoolsSM Certification.

Major European certification institutes which are members

of the “European Union of Agrément (UEATC)” have
certified both Trespa Meteon and its recommended fixing
systems. This makes Trespa a reliable partner and Meteon
panels an excellent choice for long-lasting buildings.

> Easy to modify against aging by overcladding with Trespa materials.
> No need for sealants, few joints > Trespa is durable.
> No painting required > Rain screen cladding protects the inner shells of the
building from water damage and deterioration.
> In the event of unforeseen damage during the life of
a panel, replacement panels in the original color can
usually be made available, even after several years.

Life span of used materials

Arch. Cabinet Vigier, France

Trespa panels have an extensive life span. No painting is

required, only annual cleaning with mild cleaning agents,
such as water and detergents. Graffiti is easy to remove with
more severe water-based cleaning agents, without impact
on the quality or performance of the product. Meteon is
termite resistant and is not affected by microorganisms.
The panel properties withstand moisture and freeze-thaw
cycles and will not decay.
Whole life costing of the building
In most cases, especially in demanding interior applications
and in exterior applications, Trespa offers solutions with
low operational costs and better whole life costs. Costs for
maintenance are low. Trespa Meteon is resistant to many
kinds of abuse.
