Architectural Uses for Precision Board
Precision Board high-density urethane has many applications within the architectural industry, including for models/proof of concept, cladding, gables, acoustic wall panels, scalloped window panels, topographic maps, and ornate railings.

Precision Board HDU has been formulated with eco-friendly, “green” urethane components. This formulation has achieved a certified “Carbon Balance” of 3 to 1 and a “Rapidly Renewable resource Content” of 23.9%. This major environmental improvement has also allowed a tighter cell structure which results in more chips and less dust when cutting and machining.
Meeting Green Building Standards
Precision Board now assists in meeting LEED requirements for obtaining USGBC and ICC 700-2008 building credits.
LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community is built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environment quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. LEED stands for “Leadership in Energy & Environmental Designs”.
Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. To learn more about LEED and the USGBC, visit their website at www.usgbc.org.
The ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standard™ is an ANSI-approved consensus standard that provides criteria for rating the environmental performance of residential buildings including detached and attached single-family, multi-unit and renovation projects. It was developed as a partnership between the National Association of Home Builders and the International Code Council. To learn more, visit the National Green Building Standard website.
