Sustainable Environmental Performance

Norfoam is committed to the continual improvement of our environmental policies and maintaining sustainable building practices, evident throughout involvement with PACIA’s Sustainability Leadership Development Framework . The full range of Norfoam products are designed and tested for Australian conditions and developed with the health of the Australian environment and community in mind. All of our products are non-ozone depleting with best-in-class thermal efficiency, which saves in energy costs and benefits the environment.


The COLORBOND® steel skins of all Norfoam insulated panels are 100% recyclable and have been made by BlueScope®steel with 10-30% recycled scrap. Norfoam actively source where possible production inputs that are either recycled or recyclable to reduce our environmental footprint. We collaborate with supply partners and research institutions on a range of programs to evaluate opportunities for innovation, and continually invest in the latest technologies to support this


Norfoam insulated panels are installed by a combination of screws, rivets and adhesives; and can be easily dissembled to be reused and reconstructed for other applications. The mastic and or silicone sealant which hold the panels together can be easily removed, whilst the screws and rivets which fix the panels to the steel supports and flashings can be unfastened and panels removed and reused on other building sites.


Norfoam insulated panels contribute significantly to reducing the amount of energy used to keep Australian buildings within comfortable temperature range, as they provide a roof/ceiling and external/internal wall in one highly insulated composite product. By nature of their composition, Norfoam panels also deliver continuous insulation that reduces or eliminates thermal bridging, compared to standard framed construction methods which can have disrupted insulation (which has significant contribution of heat loss/gain through thermal bridging).
Norfoam insulated panels greatly reduce the amount of material used in the construction process, which reduces landfill over standard framed construction methods due to custom project specific lengths which eliminates sites waste. In our production facilities, we have a range of initiatives to actively reclaim and convert production waste to minimise our impact on the environment.

Australia’s Health

Norfoam insulated panels use non-ozone depleting substances to form its’ insulating core, helping to promote a sustainable construction method to protect Australia’s future. These panels provide a consistent level of insulation that is impervious to compression, water vapor, vermin, termites and rot, which decreases the risks of structural damage whilst improving the living quality for Australia.
These insulated panel products also contribute to Australia through their ‘buildability;’ as they significantly shorten the construction times, which provides economic, social and environmental benefits to the community.

Global Experience, Local Perspective

Norfoam is a member of the Bondor Metecno Group Australia’s largest manufacturer of insulated panels. This allows you to benefit from our global experience coupled with local dedication to Australia, and our local knowledge of the needs of North Queensland. Through purchasing high performance building products designed specifically for Australian conditions and using Australian inputs including BlueScope COLORBOND® steel, you are not only reducing your impact on the environment, but you are supporting Australian manufacturing industries.
