Durable, Separable, Recyclable

THE FURNISHINGS THAT PROTECT BOTH MAN AND THE ENVIRONMENT

In home design, three variables are becoming increasingly relevant: the durability of materials, the modularity of furnishings, and the ability to separate and recycle them at the end of their life. Aspects that allow for shaping a truly sustainable home, starting from the garage and its most innovative closing options

Amidst the shifting trends in design, one element remains unchanged and timeless: sustainability. That of creations made responsibly and conceived to follow a virtuous and circular lifecycle.
Ecology, in fact, no longer represents an obstacle to creativity but, on the contrary, becomes an ally, through optimal solutions also in terms of functionality and aesthetics.

The benefits for both man and the environment find a point of convergence, for example, in maximizing the functionality of furnishings. Furniture that serves multiple purposes, such as transformable tables, Murphy beds, and seats with integrated storage spaces, are highly sought after and environmentally friendly as well.

Moreover, the use of natural and easily recyclable materials is a priority in interior and exterior furnishing. In the latter case, for outdoor doors or closures, it will be necessary to consider resistance to weathering and choose only quality products to gain an advantage in terms of durability.

Sustainable Elegance: The Answer Lies in Wood

Environmental sustainability and human health are two goals that are receiving increasing attention and inspiring innovative design choices. Firstly, in the selection of materials: it is important to consider emissions of volatile organic compounds or pollutants to improve air quality and reduce negative impact on human health.

Domestic furnishings, if not made with sustainability criteria, can indeed contain chemicals that evaporate into the air and contribute to the formation of atmospheric pollutants. Particles that can be potentially harmful to health, especially if attention is not paid to ventilating the environment during and after the installation of new materials. Therefore, it is good practice to select products with certificates guaranteeing non-toxicity and rely on solid manufacturers that have been operating in the sector for years.

At the end of its life cycle, furnishings raise an additional environmental issue: disposal. In the design phase, it is important to also consider the possibility of separating materials and recycling them once their function is finished.

Therefore, health and the environment, and the solution that meets both needs lies in the natural elegance of wood. This material exerts a timeless charm and allows every piece of furniture to be transformed into an evergreen. A characteristic that makes it a valid solution for both indoor and outdoor design choices: its aesthetics always remain impeccable both in terms of style and performance, thanks to waterproof, non-toxic, and non-polluting treatments that prevent deterioration. A material that is completely renewable and with an inexhaustible value.

The sectional garage door sector is not immune to this transition. Breda has been active in research and development of products that meet certain parameters for years now.

One of our flagship products is the Pegaso garage door line.

Wooden Garage Doors: A Sustainable Choice

There are several advantages to opting for wooden garage doors:

  1. Environmental Sustainability: By using wood from sustainably managed forests and treated with ecological practices, the overall environmental impact is reduced. Wood is a renewable and biodegradable material, and its production tends to have a lower carbon footprint compared to other construction materials.
  2. Thermal Insulation: Wood offers excellent thermal insulation capabilities, helping to keep the garage warmer in winter and cooler in summer. This can reduce dependence on heating and cooling systems, helping to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  3. Aesthetics and Customization: Wooden doors offer a wide range of designs and styles, allowing you to customize the appearance of the garage to match the architectural style of the surrounding house or building. This aesthetic flexibility can enhance the overall aesthetic value of the property.
  4. Durability: With proper maintenance, wooden doors can be extremely durable over time. Proper treatments such as painting and sealing can protect the wood from moisture, weather damage, and insects, prolonging its useful life.
  5. Repairability: In case of damage or wear, wooden doors can be repaired more easily than other materials such as steel or aluminum. This means that their lifespan can be extended further without necessarily having to replace the entire door.
  6. Added Value to the Property: Installing high-quality wooden doors can increase the overall value of the property, adding a touch of elegance and rustic charm.

 

In summary, wooden garage doors offer a combination of sustainability, thermal performance, aesthetic flexibility, and durability that make them an attractive choice for many homeowners and businesses.

Modular Design Objective: From Old to New Without Waste

Turning creativity into an ally of sustainable design is an exciting challenge. Through creative restorations, old furniture can start a new life, and there is no limit to the possible combinations of styles between classic and modern.

Renovating, therefore, guarantees an extended lifecycle without sacrificing efficiency and aesthetics, which, on the contrary, gain new value through modular furnishings designed from the outset to be replaced in their most worn parts, with significant environmental and economic savings.
Not having to dispose of the entire product, in fact, contributes to waste reduction and more efficient use of resources. And, compared to the environmental advantage, the economic one is no less relevant.

🔗 BREDA CLOSURES: THE MANTLE CHANGES, THE VALUES REMAIN

Giving a new look to a door has become even easier thanks to Breda’s design, conceived not only in terms of aesthetics and functionality but also of environmental sustainability.
With the Mantle Change option, the main structure of a door can remain the same, even as needs and tastes change. It is possible, in fact, to apply a wide choice of new panels and accessories to the previously installed model, giving the door a completely renewed appearance, while still maintaining all sliding systems and automations. There is no limit to customization: from finishes to glazed sections, to pedestrian doors and portholes. All without modifying the original structure.
