Trespa® Meteon® is a decorative high pressure compact laminate designed for exterior architectural applications. Manufactured using Trespa’s in house technology, Electron Beam Curing, Trespa® Meteon® is composed of 70% wood fibres and 30% resin. This unique composition provides highly stable, dense panels with excellent strength to weight ratios.
Trespa® Meteons® weather resistance and colour stability is exceptional; in support of this a full manufacturer’s warranty is provided. In addition to these features, the Trespa® Meteon® panel is impact resistant and sturdy whilst providing outstanding compressive and tensile strength.
The closed surface of Trespa® Meteon® virtually eliminates dirt accumulation and prevents paints, inks, adhesives and other graffiti materials from permanently harming the sheets. This significantly reduces ongoing maintenance costs.
The wide range of vibrant colours and finishes available provide architects and designers with an array of options to enhance their buildings.
Trespa® Meteon® stands out in vertical exterior wall coverings such as ventilated facade systems, balcony panelling as well as horizontal exterior ceiling projects. Various fixing systems are available to suit both conceal and face fixing applications.
The acclaimed Trespa® Meteon® compact laminate panels enable modern buildings to utilise materials that are aesthetically pleasing, durable as well as practical.
Trespa® Meteon® panels are installed as a component of rainscreen cladding or ventilated facade system. This “breathing” envelope system, employed the world over, can contribute a number of advantages to building designs.
Rainscreen and decorative facade
Trespa® Meteon® panels cut to size are used as a rainscreen and decorative facade; a building solution with both technical and aesthetic benefits. Joints between panels can remain open.
Cavity depth and ventilation
The free air cavity depth between the rainscreen cladding and the insulation or wall construction allows for ambient air to flow through from the ventilation inlets and outlets. For continuous ventilation behind the panel, a certain cavity depth between the rainscreen cladding and the insulation or wall construction is needed. The cavity depth as well as the minimum size of the ventilation inlets and outlets must be in accordance with applicable building standards, regulations and certificates.
A ventilated facade can be constructed using different tested and certified fixing systems, each with their own advantages in terms of aesthetics (e.g. invisible fixing, joinery details), installation and performance, to fix Trespa® Meteon® panels on a sub-frame.
First, a chimney effect draws air through the cavity, aiding in the removal of heat and moisture from rain or condensation. Second, the rainscreen blocks some solar gain and accommodates continuous insulation, considerably reducing air-conditioning. Third, these results are shown to improve comfort within occupied zones. Residents and users not only find themselves in a low-maintenance-environment, but the dry and comfortable conditions of the building may also make a positive contribution to indoor environmental quality

We have extended our successful range of Trespa® Meteon® Wood Decors by adding six new grey wood tones. These grey wood tones were developed in consultation with an international panel of architects – and they allow you to incorporate a natural wood appearance whilst retaining the solid reliability and durability of Trespa. This important addition to the Trespa® Meteon® range opens up even more possibilities for outstanding and timeless exteriors – on its own, or in combination with other materials, where the new grey wood decors can add subtle highlights and surprising contrasts.
By applying and combining the new Trespa® Meteon® Lumen façade panels, natural light can be creatively manipulated and introduced as a design element. Light can be reflected, scattered, enhanced or muted according to architects’ and clients’ wishes. Trespa® Meteon® Lumen is available in three variations across 13 colours.
‘Diffuse’ removes glossiness, reflection and texture, resulting in instant tranquility. Scattered light gives façades a smooth, subdued appearance.
‘Oblique’ has a pleasantly uneven matt-and-gloss surface that brings a natural, weathered look to any façade.
‘Specular’ reflects its surroundings, adding liveliness with deep colours and gloss. Buildings become seamlessly integrated into their environment.
Seven unique decors inspired by nature’s timeless designs. The irregular, raw, weathered surfaces of Trespa® Meteon® Naturals allow structures to stand out in any kind of environment. You can unleash your creativity in new ways and create tomorrow’s nature-inspired designs. What will your façade look like?
Now, you can add the aesthetic qualities of natural materials to any design, no matter how large or small the structure. The scalable, dimensionless designs of Trespa® Meteon® Naturals bring both accents and complete façades to life. The possibilities are endless.
The basis of Trespa’s sustainability policy is a strong belief that any change should start with the company itself. Trespa’s approach to sustainable development is framed by three basic principles:
1. Do No Harm
Trespa’s first task is to comply with the safety, product and sustainability rules and guidelines set by the countries that it operates in. In addition, Trespa is looking for opportunities to minimise the impact of its operations and products.
2. Do Good
The second element of Trespa’s policy is that it strives to help its customers realise their sustainability challenges. This means that Trespa® looks for opportunities to maximise the sustainability contribution of its products in their end-use, e.g. façade cladding.
Trespa® will continue to look for opportunities and initiatives to support and promote longer term sustainable development beyond the direct scope of its current operations.
3. Do Better
Finally, Trespa® believes new business opportunities will arise from sustainable development. Many sustainability challenges also constitute opportunities that make good business sense today and will allow the company to continue to grow its business.
