CENTRIA® Versawall H+ Earns Top 25 Product Recognition From retrofit Magazine

Insulated Metal Panels Offer Unique Solutions to Retrofit Projects

Publish Date: Thursday, January 14, 2021

Moon Township, PA, January 14, 2021CENTRIA®, leading innovator and manufacturer of the world’s most advanced building envelope wall and roof panels, recently earned high praise from retrofit magazine for Versawall H+, a horizontal insulated metal panel introduced to the marketplace in 2020. Versawall H+ will appear in the January/February 2021 edition of the magazine as a “Top 25 Product.” The issue celebrates products that received the most reader inquiries from the period of November-December 2019 through September-October 2020. The magazine touts all products listed in the issue as ones that deliver unique solutions and aesthetics to retrofit projects.

“Versawall H+ clearly offers value to architects, specifiers and contractors – an attractive, energy-efficient, versatile metal panel engineered for buildings where a horizontal profile is more desirable,” said Julie Schessler, product manager at CENTRIA. “This recognition from retrofit magazine – all driven by engagement from its readers – offers more evidence that this product can meet unique challenges and create attractive, energy-efficient solutions for all kinds of building exteriors.” 

Comprised of a galvanized steel face and foam insulation, Versawall H+ is strong yet lightweight, creating efficiency in the installation process. The panels also deliver superior weather resistance and moisture protection. From a design perspective, the panels enable architects to create a sleek, modern look for large-scale buildings that have lower, wider profiles, including warehouses, schools and shopping centers.

The only print and online publication dedicated exclusively to covering the renovation of existing commercial, institutional and industrial buildings, retrofit is published bi-monthly and is nationally circulated to approximately 45,000 architects, contractors, facility managers, building owners and government officials.

“We consider retrofit a source book for our readers to find innovative solutions and products for their own retrofit projects,” said John Riester, retrofit publisher. “The Top 25 Products special in our January-February issue is a great resource to our readers, showcasing the products readers’ peers thought were most interesting within the pages of retrofit.”
