FlexHead® Industries demonstrates its commitment to sustainability by supporting LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) principles and USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) objectives.
Millions of gallons of water are drained from sprinkler piping every year. FlexHead® products can help minimize hydrostatic testing during initial installation and eliminate the need to drain sprinkler piping during tenant fitups and/or sprinkler head relocations.
FlexHead® helps reduce operating costs as it increases the value and sustainability of property. The choice of products can impact a building’s qualification for LEED Certification. The LEED Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.
LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human health and environmental health: sustainable sites; water efficiency; energy & atmosphere; materials & resources; and indoor environmental quality. Various aspects of the design, manufacture, and operation of FlexHead® products support LEED principles and USGBC objectives.
FlexHead® products offer the added benefit of supporting customers’ LEED efforts. Our consistent commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility through choice of materials, design, and product performance pays cost benefits to customers. FlexHead® contributes to meeting the objectives of LEED and the US Green Building Council (USGBC).
LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets green building and performance measures. Based on a system of prerequisites and credits, LEED projects earn points during the certification process Products and services do play a role and can help projects with credit achievement; however, products and services do not guarantee project points.
