Marley Alutec is committed to designing the most sustainable, durable and high-performance guttering, rainwater drainage and eaves systems available. Its products are manufactured from marine-grade aluminium, an infinitely recyclable material that requires little energy to recycle and repurpose.
Due to the material’s naturally occurring protective oxide coating, it is also highly corrosion resistant, with a 50+ year functional life expectancy and minimal maintenance required.
All Marley Alutec systems are available with an architectural grade polyester powder coating (PPC), ensuring an attractive, durable finish. A lightweight and strong alternative, aluminium systems are also up to 65% lighter than cast iron alternatives, with a high strength to weight ratio.
One of the environmental milestones achieved by Marley Alutec over the course of the last two years, is its receipt of the ISO 14001 Certification in recognition of its environmental management across all manufacturing and operational processes.
Successfully attaining zero landfill waste was at the core of the ISO 14001 certification. As such, Marley Alutec changed all its packaging tape from plastic to paper, ensured that all bubble wrap used was and continues to be fully bio-degradable and that small products are shipped in recycled cardboard boxes.
Maintaining this certification going forward is crucial to Marley Alutec, with the company working to select waste service providers who offer environmental practices in line with ISO 14001. Any scrap material including wood, cardboard and aluminium used by the company is now fully recycled. Furthermore, its warehouse in Bedford has converted all fluorescent lighting to more environmentally friendly LEDs, enabling a 30% reduction in the company’s energy consumption.
In addition to its continued investment in more ecological changes across its product materials, processing and operations, Marley Alutec also now offers its RIBA-accredited CPD seminars online via Microsoft Teams, providing an opportunity for its participants to learn more about the company’s sustainable product portfolio.
