    RENOLIT ALKORPLAN roofing products elevate Goimek's manufacturing facility to new heights of sustainability and efficiency

    Saint Celoni, Barcelona, 3 April 2024 - Better temperature control, greater longevity of the materials used, improved comfort for workers and better energy performance and sustainability for the company: these are the benefits that the Goimek cooperative (part of the Danobatgroup of cooperatives) has achieved thanks to RENOLIT ALKORPLAN roofing products and the work of the installer BAK S.Coop.

    In addition to the sustainability achieved thanks to the chosen product, the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN Smart Cool Grey 1.5 mm membrane, the cooperative was able to further contribute to environmental sustainability thanks to RENOLIT ALKORPLAN roofing products’ Cool 3 campaign.

    A commitment that the company has made together with Treedom and that will see it, also in 2024, engaged to plant 1 tree for every 100 sq.m. of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN Bright or Smart sold.

    Efficiency and sustainability for high-precision manufacturing

    Goimek focuses on the production of high-precision machining parts to both Spanish and international customers. For manufacturing needs, the company must control the inner temperature of the building all year round. This prompted it to revise the roof of the industrial building, located In Itziar (Basque Country, Spain): an area of 8,700 sqm.

    In addition to this, the company required a durable material with a 20-year warranty, which would allow it to achieve better energy performance and thus greater sustainability.

    The choice therefore fell on RENOLIT ALKORPLAN Smart Cool Grey 1,5 mm, a cool colour roof membrane that provides not only water tightness, mechanical resistance, and chemical resistance, but also energy saving, sustainability, versatility, aesthetics, resistance to UV radiation thus longer durability. The membrane is up 60% more efficient than a standard coloured membrane, with a higher longevity than other products on the market. 

    «This membrane is made of a highly reflective material, meaning that it is possible to lower the temperature of the membrane itself and along with that the temperature of the building», says Alejandro Baleztena Echeverria, Managing Director BAK S.Coop.

    «The synthetic membrane by RENOLIT ALKORPLAN roofing products gives us a perfect water tightness and allows us to keep a total control of the temperature inside the building all year round. In addition, it allows us to be more energy efficient and to have a high grade of comfort and wellness for the workers», adds Mikel Irureta Iturrino, Environmental Health, and Safety Manager at Goimek. 

    Goimek's sustainable choice: planting trees and reducing CO2 with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN

    The choice of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN roofing products has enabled Goimek to take a further step towards sustainability.

    In fact, RENOLIT ALKORPLAN roofing products has decided to carry on its Cool 3 campaign in partnership with Treedom. The campaign has already allowed RENOLIT ALKORPLAN roofing products’ customers to plant 3,500 trees that will absorb 1,138.30 t of CO2. By choosing RENOLIT ALKORPLAN Smart Cool Grey 1,5 mm, Goimek has contributed to plant 87 trees, which will absorb 30.077 kg of Co2.
