Minimizing and even eliminating waste is one of the most important premises for the preservation of natural resources and the viability of the planet in the coming years.
The example of food waste, be it what was left on the consumer's table or what was spoiled in the supermarket, stands out as millions of people around the world suffer from hunger.
Another very impactful waste is construction materials, as in addition to occupying a lot of space, leftovers and cutouts are not always disposed of correctly, reducing the chances of reutilization.
The high volume of waste, whichever the field of activity, is due to a linear narrative where the products necessarily need to have a beginning, middle and end, that is, they are developed to be used and discarded.
Include circular premises when designing new products help create solutions that minimize waste and environmental impact even before it hits the shelves.
Each architrave leaves the factory as a 240 cm long bar by default. To frame both sides of a conventional door, however, you'll need four 220 cm bars for the sides and two 110 cm bars for the top of the door/ doorway. Just to create the seamless frames, you would waste 80 cm on the sides and 60 cm on the top, totaling a waste of 1.40 meters on a single door that could have been avoided.
Avoiding waste, the Architrave Pro Pack provides two mouldings for the sides and one for top already finished in the measurements of different door patterns, so you can just concentrate on the installation. To frame the two sides of a door, for example, you will need two architrave pro packs, installing the bars with the Santa Luzia Super Adhesive and Santa Luzia Double-Sided Tape, finishing the installation with the >Premium Caulk or the Santa Luzia Sealant.
Even though it is possible to find an application for this volume of scraps, much of it can end up in the garbage trucks and not return to the factory to be recycled. All of Santa Luzia's mouldings are made of recycled material and are recyclable, they are also water resistant, do not mold, rot and they are immune to pests, such as termites. The company uses expanded polystyrene residues as its main raw material, a type of plastic known by the acronym EPS or popularly by the brand Styrofoam®.
