Challenge us! We do it too. ENVIRAL® regularly submits to the quality controls of the GSB, which is the quality association for the coating of building components. Since 2011, we have been complying with the quality guideline for the coating of building components made of aluminum and its alloys that are used in the construction industry: for our production in Austria as well as for our production in Germany.
Since 2016, we have also attained the GSB Master Approved Zinc & Steel certification by GSB for our site in Germany. This makes ENVIRAL® one of only a few powder coating companies even in Europe that are allowed to carry this predicate: You as a customer gain the highest degree of safety and reliability in surface finishing.

In addition to the numerous approvals of architectural and industrial coatings, ENVIRAL® has been actively engaged in the topic of "use of alternative energies and avoidance of pollutants" since its foundation in the 1990s.
The consistent environmental orientation, which is also codified in the company name with "Environment", was continued in 2019 with the entry into the DGNB, the German Sustainable Building Council. The association with its approximately 1,200 member organizations represents the entire value chain in the construction and real estate industry. What all members of the DGNB have in common - and why we are part of it - is the interest and willingness to actively work for more sustainability and thus to keep further enhancing sustainable construction as a topic.
In 2021, ENVIRAL® is taking the next step and has joined the Alliance for Climate and Development. The commitment is accompanied at both sites in Germany and in Austria. It includes investments in new compressed air technology as well as in additional large PV systems aiming at the greatest possible self-utilization of solar power and for peak power load capping. To achieve this, among other things, control optimization is being carried out through a 100 kW electricity storage system at each site. In Austria, the use of self-generated electricity is additionally increased by resistance heating elements, which heat two hot water tanks with surplus electricity - especially on weekends and holidays.
In addition, ENVIRAL® aims to support CO2 reduction in emerging countries through its commitment to the Alliance for Climate and Development ... and continues to work on steadily reducing or finally replacing the fossil energy still in use.
