LEED requirements are becoming the standard for future products. There are several LEED credits that can be applied on Pedimat ®, PediTred ®, Pedigrid ® Products. Many architects are now incorporating permanent entrance systems in their designs to aid in making their building LEED certified.


Materials and Resources

MR Credit 4.1, Recycled Content

To fulfill this requirement, the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus one-half of the post-industrial content constitutes at least 4% of the total value of the materials in the project. Aluminum for Pedimats ®, PediTreds ®, and Pedigrids ® is 30% post consumer, 46% post industrial. Look at Recycled Rubber Inserts for options on adding additional post-consumer content to your project.

MR Credit 6, Rapidly Renewable Material

2.5% of the total value of all building materials and products must be made with rapidly renewable materials and products. Typically these are plants harvested within a ten-year cycle or shorter. We offer Wood Inserts such as bamboo and cork treads, which add rapidly renewable content to any project.


Indoor Environmental Quality

IEQ Credit 4.3, Low-Emitting Materials

Low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) refer to organic chemical compounds that have significant vapor pressures. These man-made and naturally occurring chemical compounds can affect the environment and human health. Many of our products meet the standards for low VOCs.

IEQ Credit 5, Pollutant Source Control

This credit requires compliance with a varied group of items that cumulatively help keep pollutants out of the indoor air. One basic requirement for LEED 3.3 is to install a permanent entrance system at least 10 feet long in all major entrance areas of the building.
