Zanette is an industrial reality oriented towards change and innovation, born in 1954 in ana area with a high industrial vocation. In Italy it was a particular period with transition from mass to specialisation production. In contrast to common large companies that already spread in the Italian territory, small and medium-sized companies are beginning to take hold.
Zanette is a company located in Vigonovo, in the area of Pordenone, North East of Italy, specialized for over thirty years in the industrial prefabrication market. Thanks to its experience, the company is able to produce different types of products for many needs.
ZANETTE AND CLADIA
The production process has changes all over the years and Zanette was able to intercept this new way. In particular, the company’s work has always been driven by 3 different elements: design, research, production. And it is precisely starting from these 3 elements that Zanette created, thanks to its experience over the years as a manufacturer of prefabricated concrete panels, and the collaboration with LafargeHolcim, Cladia: particular cladding panels made with Ductal UHPC concrete.
It was thanks to constant research, always aimed at the development of new technologies, and the quality control of materials that these new products could see the light in the Zanette internal laboratory.
A look towards the future
Zanette’s goal is to work with new technologies and materials, to transform the construction of simple prefabricated buildings into one increasingly complex. The company today also works with a look towards the future, which is to always be present in the renewable energy and eco-sustainability sector.
Two concepts that are fundamental as the construction sector will have to be increasingly sustainable and respectful of the environment, if it is to continue to be a staple of the Italian economy.
A greener building is possible and the margins for improvement are high. A path that Zanette has chosen to follow for a long time to ensure excellent results for the end customer but without impacting the environment.
Eco-sustainability and renewable energy: Zanette’s green philosophy.
Zanette is a company active in the construction sector that has always chosen to produce paying attention to issue of the environment and sustainability. These guidelines have olso been followed with regard to the production of Cladia panels.
Cladia is a completely natural products, free of toxic and harmful substances for humans, which derives from cement. Like concrete, the panel is never homogeneous and can present small bubbles, like the skin it can have small expression lines.
These are synonyms of a natural but long-lasting product that makes healthy environments. Concrete is considered a natural product and we see it as such, with all its qualities and different ways of expression.
Importance of ECO-SUSTAINABILITY
Eco-sustainability is the set of human activities undertaken with the aim of pursuing sustainable development. The goal of eco-sustainability is to make use of the planet’s resources, ensuring their cyclic reproduction and respecting the earth’s balances.
Making eco-sustainable architecture means designing energy efficient buildings with a limited environmental impact. Creating virtuous and sustainable properties of this type is the challenge of the future but for many it is already a reality.
Buildings represent great potential in achieving the EU objectives of contrasting climate change and their enhancement with environmentally friendly materials and energy efficiency becomes a more vital stimulus than ever.
Reduction of energy consumption.
Starting from January 1, 2021, all new buildings or the ones subject to major renovations, will have to comply with certain energy performance requirements, both at a structural level and with regard to plant engineering. This is established by the European Union, which has issued a series of directives (contains in the EPBD 31/2010) for the reduction of energy consumption in buildings. Sustainable architecture is perfectly part of the interventions aimed at achieving these goals.
Buildings environmentally sustainable is Zanette’s mission, for example in creating CLADIA panels. A green solution both for the process whereby the panels are made and for the performance guaranteed by the finished product. No raw material used for the components of CLADIA is obtained through oil synthesis process and material is completely to avoid release any substance into the environment.
ZANETTE’s commitment to innovation, research and development.
Innovation, research and Development: these are 3 elements to which Zanette has always paid great attention. The constant search for new technologies is crucial in a sector such as construction. All this takes place through a research process to ensure high standards. The research is aimed at the development of new technologies and the quality control of materials and products, subjected to continuous tests in the internal laboratory and to further experimental tests in an authorized external laboratory.
Innovative technical solutions.
In particular, innovative technical solutions are developed and perfected, such as thermal break walls, in the direction of respect for the environment and energy saving, according to the recent directives of the Kyoto Protocol. Reference is to an international agreement to face global anthropic responsibility is clear and proven.
Zanette collaborates with the customer for the development of each individual project, looking for customized solutions, increasingly based on maximum functionality and always with attention to the smallest details, guaranteeing high products quality at balanced prices.
Our innovative products.
Among the highest quality products there are the facede finishes, which are also supported with the use of special pieces such as rounded corner pieces, head turns, false frame joints, etc…
Our company always pays attention to regulations, which is why we also produce thermal break infill panels in different thicknesses and with different characteristics of both acoustic and thermal insulations.
All this takes place through an internal production cycle that covers every phase, from design to development. Innovation and quality are two of the pillars on which ZAnette’s work has always been based. Innovation is achieved in particular on products for internal and external facades, on which the attention of the company has focused over the years, which has given like to a unique product of certified quality.
