The next three items in our series feature Butler Manufacturing’s building systems for walls, roofs and insulation.

When it comes to the overall energy efficiency of a commercial or industrial building, even the smallest improvements can see a significant reduction in heating and cooling costs over the lifetime of a building.

That is why we believe that Butler® roof and wall systems are a smart investment for our clients. With materials that are good for the overall health of the environment and designs that will provide long-term financial well-being, we know that your facility will perform at peak efficiency for years to come.

4. Energy Efficient Wall Systems

Butler’s energy efficient wall systems offer a practical and attractive way to finish any project. If energy efficiency is your primary concern, then the eShadowall™ Wall System will add valuable life cycle cost savings to your next building project. If your building needs to be prepared for evolving energy codes, then a hidden fastener architectural panel such as Butler’s eStylWall™ II Flat Wall System is right for you. It has a higher end look and finish along with being energy efficient. From efficiency to affordability, no matter what specialized application you require, Butler has the right wall system to fit your project needs.

5. ThermaLiner Insulation System

The ThermaLiner™ Intsulation System is a state-of-the-art insulated liner system that can be used with all Butler® roof systems. Durable, easy to clean and maintain, it is an ideal choice to help reduce heating and cooling costs in your building while controlling condensation.

If you’re looking for a finished interior roof system that can reduce interior noise transmission and provide enhanced energy efficiency; then Butler’s ThermaLiner™ Insulation System is the system for your buildings needs.

6. Cool Roofs

When it comes to your building having a “Cool Roof”, a great way to make your building both energy efficient and environmentally friendly is with one of Butler’s durable, solar reflectance “Cool Roof” finishes.

With a 25-year warranty, these reflective finishes will lower roof temperatures which help to reduce the amount of energy required to cool a building. Not only will your building look amazing but it will also help reduce smog formation in your city by not contributing to the Heat Island Effect.

So enhance and protect the beauty of your building with a Butler® “Cool Roof” and take that next step to making your neighbourhood a little greener.
