Trespa International: Composite Panel Solutions

Trespa International is a global leader in the development and production of high-performance composite panels for exterior cladding, decorative facades and interior surfaces. Meteon panels excel as a rain screen cladding system. The open joint system equalizes pressure between the cladding and the load bearing wall, minimizing the amount of water penetration, and ventilation allows moisture to drain out of wall construction. Meteon is also ideal for fascias, storefronts, and balconies, and is available in a range of colors and textures.
