For 16 years, Metcalf has provided architects, buildings owners, contractors and consultants with educational and technical information, as well as dependable building systems, products and components.
Tubelite manufacturers storefront, curtainwall, entrance and daylight control systems. Earlier this year, the company announced that all of its architectural, extruded aluminum products now use EcoLuminum™, a high recycled-content aluminum billet composition featuring environmentally-friendly finishes.
“Tubelite’s EcoLuminum contains a minimum of 80 percent reclaimed aluminum, with a post-consumer content average of 34 percent. This is the highest recycled content I know of that is available for architectural building products of this quality and performance,” says Metcalf. “Recycled content is especially important to building project teams seeking LEED certification, as is energy-efficiency. Tubelite also provides high thermal performance systems.”
Along with Tubelite, Metcalf has a long history representing high-performance products from Wausau Window and Wall Systems and from other manufacturers offering aluminum panel systems, fire-rated glass, and terrace railings.
