At Coastal Enterprises, green is more than just a color. It’s a vigorous nod toward Earth’s future. As part of an ongoing commitment to environmental health, we have composed our new Precision Board out of special eco-friendly components, including state-of-the-art ‘green urethane’ formulations. As the only HDU manufacturer incorporating environmental safeguards into our product, we’re clearly taking the path to a greener Earth. Precision Board products are USA made.
Precision Board HDU has been reformulated with eco-friendly, “Green” urethane components. The new 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.
