    Abet Launches Durable MEG Exterior Building Panels

    Abet's MEG Exterior Building Panels on The Moorings residences in Hingham, MA, by DiMella Shaffer Architecture.


    Architects and designers understand more than anyone the appeal of low maintenance yet high impact building products. One of these emerging products is Abet Laminati’s MEG Exterior Building Panels, laminate panels which are graffiti and vandal resistant, fire resistant, environmentally friendly, self supporting and available in a wide range of solid colors, wood grains, metallic and concrete looks.


    ICC-ES
    thoroughly examined Abet’s product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods to ensure the product is code-compliant. Specifiers can now utilize ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving MEG in construction projects.

    chose the product for The Moorings residences in Hingham, MA, for its versatility and ability to multitask. “Due to the harbor-side location, many exterior material cues were taken from the marine environment," explains David Taylor, the firm's CA Manager. "The ABET wall panels were selected to recall the mahogany trim used in classic sailing vessels. This allowed us to select a material that is durable and resistant to color fading.”

    Weather was a factor in that the firm needed a material durable enough to stand up to the marine environment. “Color fastness and easy installation made MEG an excellent match of material performance and application need for the Hingham project,” says Tony Damiano, president, Abet.
