LEED

Metal products offer many benefits, especially in today’s sustainable building market. Many are manufactured from recycled substrates and are, in turn, 100% recyclable. Often, they can be finished with colors that reflect a significant amount of heat away from the structure. In addition, metal provides many architectural possibilities and can provide the owner with many years of maintenance-free life. When the cost is averaged with other building envelope products, metal becomes the smart choice for design professionals and owners.

Two special aspects of all this are the Energy Star® program for energy efficiency and the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program of “Green Building” certification for energy efficient, environmentally-friendly structures. Cladding Systems is an expert at designing solutions that incorporate applications, techniques, and products which qualify for the maximum number of LEED credits.
