LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
Kingspan Insulation’s OPTIM-R and GreenGuard insulation products can reduce building energy demand, dependent upon the amount of insulation used. GreenGuard Building Wraps reduce unwanted air infiltration into the wall cavity, thus helping to protect the insulative wall properties. All GreenGuard insulation products contain at least 30% post-industrial recycled content. All GreenGuard building wraps contain at least 5% post-industrial recycled content.
The Kingspan KoolDuct System can also reduce a building’s energy demand through improved airtightness of ductwork. For additional information, please visit the LEED website.
*Depending on the percent reduction in energy use based on ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999 or local energy code, whichever is more stringent.
*Depending on the amount of post-industrial recycled content.
*Dependent upon 20% of all materials being manufactured regionally, within a 500-mile radius of the project. GreenGuard XPS insulation and building wraps are manufactured in Winchester, VA.
