Green Building Rating System

The LEED Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus-based program for developing high-performance sustainable buildings. Based on well-founded scientific standards, LEED emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. It is becoming an increasingly important component of the building design.

The SlenderWall system can assist the designer in obtaining LEED Certification for the building. The number of points gained toward Certification depends upon various design factors, such as the mix used and the finish. For example, more points may be obtained if a light-colored mix is utilized, or if a Thin Brick or Architectural Precast Concrete Brick (APCB) finish is utilized. Contact an Easi-Set representative (540-439-8911 or 800-547-4045) for more specific details.
