What makes IsoTruss® more impressive is its manufacturing process which emits up to 70% less CO2 than steel for the same strength. Steel alone accounts for 6.7% of the world’s total CO2 emissions. In a world that is increasingly more concerned about taking care of the planet, IsoTruss® has the potential to replace not only steel, but also other high carbon emission materials like aluminum.
Due to its near indestructible characteristics, IsoTruss® products are less expensive in the longer run because they require less maintenance and almost no replacements of parts thereby giving tremendous economic value and savings. Over a 50 year period, a tower company would be able to save thousands, if not, millions of dollars depending on the size and scale of the project.
A normal steel tower placed in a coastal area with high humidity would last, on average, for 5 years. Comparatively, IsoTruss® can last at least for 50 years.
