Horton Automatics provides the following documentation in support of the LEED’s (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) project certification process:
There are two types of recycled content: Pre-consumer and Post-consumer:
With respect to the percentage of recycled material used in our products, please note:
The goal of Indoor Environmental Quality credit 4.2 is to reduce the exposure of building occupants and construction workers to irritating or harmful air contaminants. Many of the materials and products used in buildings give off gas volatile organic compounds (VOC).
Paints & coatings applied to interior metal must not exceed the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) content limits of
150 g/L established in Green Seal Standard GC-11, Paints & Coatings.
Fluoropolymer resin-based powder coatings that are electrostatically applied are preferred over liquid paint because they incorporate raw materials that are free of VOC and hazardous air pollutants. Horton Automatics utilizes 100% fluoropolymer resin-based powder coatings as an available paint finish for its products.
Anodized aluminum extrusions do not contain or produce a significant level of VOC’s. Horton Automatics provides a full range of anodized aluminum finishes for all its products.
Horton Automatics trusts that the foregoing information helps you determine the contribution of Horton Automatics door systems to the USGBC LEED building rating of your structure.
