green energy

The production facilities of Rimadesio are fully powered by solar energy. In 2011 the company achieved an important aim: zero emissions of CO2.
A result achieved thanks to the three photovoltaic systems owned by the company, with a total installed power of 1,3 MWp,, which are able to guarantee an annual return of 1,400,000 kWh, that save emissions estimated up to 900 tons of CO2 / year.
Rimadesio fits virtually off-grid, becoming a producer of clean energy that is fed into the public network.

know-how

know-how

The production of the Rimadesio glass is an area in which the know-how of the company, developed through a 60 years experience, meets the latest technology, such as computer equipment for laser cutting.
A production philosophy that now allows Rimadesio to interpret this ancient material in more than 70 different finishes, providing new answers to the needs of contemporary life and new solutions to the everyday use of space.
innovation are two recurrent qualities in all Rimadesio proposals, two complementary research frameworks that combine design with focus on environmental issues and concrete ecological commitment.
The Abacus living system, which is made of 65% glass and aluminium - totally recyclable materials - is an example of this research. Furthermore, Ecolorsystem painted glass is produced with new generation, non pollutant, water-based paints and with low energy consumption processing methods.
On average 190 KW/H are needed to produce an Abacus living composition, and more than half of this was produced using solar energy.

innovation

innovation

Every Rimadesio product issues from the result of a complex industrialisation process that guarantees the utmost reliability in time.
The combination of industrial production and original functional solutions is a constant corporate trend. Early in the 1990s, Rimadesio was the first to introduce telescopic counter-frames for doors, designed to remove the issue of differences in wall thickness.
Likewise, project Siparium, which was produced in 1992, is the first glass and aluminium sliding door system for homes. It is produced to order.
Research involves all frameworks, both functional and aesthetic. We find an example in the bookcase Zenit which, free of perforated vertical uprights, allows free positioning of components.

Ecolorsystem

reflective glasses

Ecolorsystem is the brand of Rimadesio’s exclusive painted glass collection. These ecologic colours are entirely produced within the corporate framework with ecocompatible materials and technologies.
New generation, non pollutant, water-based paints are the core of the project. As a matter of fact, they allow glass baking at 110 °C with a subsequent 30% reduction in power consumption. Moreover, the painting unit has a filter system that ensures total water recovery and reutilisation during processing.
Ecolorsystem glass guarantees resistance to corrosion, pursuant to regulation UNI EN ISO 9227, and resistance to temperature changes, pursuant to regulation UNI 9429.
The Ecolorystem collection includes 36 shades with glossy finish and 38 with matt finish, besides 5 shades in the exclusive reflex finish for a reflecting metallic effect.

ecological packaging

ecological packaging

Rimadesio makes use solely of recyclable packaging that is produced inside the company, and which complies with Legislative Decree No. 22/97 that applies European Directive 94/62/EC.
The structural parts of the packaging, which were previously in wood, have been replaced by edge protectors and U-shaped profiles that are entirely made of microcorrugated cardboard, an avant-garde solution that exploits a 100% recyclable material, guaranteeing the utmost protection for contents during transport. It also solves the many issues associated with the disposal of old wooden frames.
The transparent surface protection film is made of high quality virgin polymers that release neither hazardous solvents nor substances during combustion; they are, therefore, 100% recyclable.
The boxes are produced by the company, exploiting a continuous-feed plant that packages, on order and just in time, only the daily quantity that is actually required, with minimal discard materials.
