Finnforest has introduced Kerto-Ripa, an open or pre-insulated closed-panel construction system for a range of applications including schools, commercial and leisure buildings

The system has two key applications – flooring and roofing – and enables clear roof spans of up to 18m to be created without columns or beams, delivering greater design flexibility.

It also provides a solution for flat or low-pitched roofs with the system prefabricated according to the thermal requirements of a project. The Kerto-Ripa system can also be used to construct intermediate floors of a building. Clear spans of up to 8m are achievable.
