ResinDek LEED 2013 Certification Information

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has developed the construction industry's most widely accepted green building certification program. LEED is a voluntary building certification program that defines high-performance green buildings, which are more environmentally responsible, healthier, and more profitable structures. LEED was created to establish a common standard of measurement for what constitutes a "green" building. LEED serves as a design guideline for green building ideas and offers third party validation of a building's green features and use of green building materials.

ResinDek mezzanine flooring panels can contribute towards LEED 2013 Credit MR 4, and potentially MR 5, depending on the project's location.

In addition, ResinDek NAF Icon eco-friendly flooring panels can contribute towards LEED 2013 Credit IEQ 4.4, as well as MR 4, and potentially MR 5. ResinDek NAF Icon panels are certified to have No Added Formaldehyde and have been lab tested to less than 0.05 ppm.

ResinDek panels may also help qualify for Performance-Innovation in Design Credits. Please see Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, ResinDek LEED 2013 NC v3, and EB v3 Credit & Point Information Table/Matrix (below) for further details.

As a certified "green" building product, ResinDek can be used in conjunction with any of the LEED rating systems. However, the above mentioned table/matrix indicates how ResinDek panels contribute to compliance with the LEED 2013 NC v3, and EB v3 rating systems.

ResinDek panels have been certified to contain up to 72% Pre-Consumer Recycled Wood Content (dry weight basis). ResinDek NAF Icon panels are also certified to have no added formaldehyde. Both certifications are from SCS Global Services, an independent certification and standards development company for environmental and sustainability claims.

Please contact Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC for Achievement Certificates and further details.
