The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is a national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. LEED certification is initiated by US Green Building Council and is internationally recognized. LEED points (credits) are awarded to reflect the building’s potential environmental impact.
Reynaers’ systems can be used to gain LEED-credits in these domains:
- Materials and resources:
Reynaers’ extruded aluminium profiles contain about 40% recycled aluminium. Reynaers can also offer extrusions with a higher amount of recycled aluminium.
- Energy and atmosphere:
Reynaers’ systems (windows and doors, curtain walls, sliding systems, …) can be implemented, in combination with other insulated building components. Sun shading can also be applied to reduce the energy need for air conditioning. Our solar products can help to earn credits for on-site renewable energy.
- Indoor environmental quality: The amount of natural daylight and ventilation possibilities are important. All Reynaers’ products can be used to serve this purpose.
