A green and efficient way to handle EPS cladding removal

Due to the urgent need for safety improvements in cladding, companies need an efficient and cost-effective way to remove this material from high-rise buildings.

EPS6 in Cladding

Many high rise buildings have EPS in the cladding, which has proven to present an immediate and imminent safety risk.

Disposal of the existing cladding presents a complex challenge in and of itself that has both financial and environmental impacts in its action.

Challenges in removal and disposal

Multiple skip removals on-site, creating traffic, greater Co2 impact and accident potential in heavily residential areas around the sites.

There is further potential for mess, hazard and pollution as the light EPS can be blown around the surrounding areas.

Turning waste to revenue

A hot wire foam cutter will allow you to cleanly separate the render from the cladding panels and create clean EPS6.

This EPS material can be compacted and melted into briquette blocks, a recyclable and valuable commodity.

Handle waste on construction site

For active construction sites, mobility is key. Mil-tek has developed a mobile baling solution that can be transported from one site to another.

Running on a standard 220V electricity, this allows construction companies to effectively handle building-related waste onsite during construction projects and move them on once completed.
