Green Products

SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring is dedicated to contributing to a cleaner environment. By recycling scrap, utilizing recycled materials and limiting waste and energy consumption, SlipNOT® aims to assist the architects and engineers in efforts to design environmentally conscious concepts.

SlipNOT® manufactures all metal products that are made of recycled metal and recycled for new use. SlipNOT® products are also high quality and provide long lasting durability. This results in less need to replace often and the impact of replacement. By specifying SlipNOT® products your project may be eligible for LEED credits.

 The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.

Due to the various products available and the source of the SlipNOT® substrate varies greatly; the recycled content varies as well. However, all SlipNOT® products have a minimum of 40% recycled content and up to 83% recycled content.

LEED requirements and credits:

Materials and Resources:

Credit 4.1 Recycled Content (Specify 10%): Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials.

1

Use materials recycled content such that the sum of the pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled content constitutes at least 10% of the total value of the materials in the project.

 

Credit 4.2 Recycled Content (Specify 20%): Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials.

(4.1) + 1

Use materials recycled content such that the sum of the pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled content constitutes at least 20% of the total value of the materials in the project.

 

Credit 5 Regional Manufacture
