LEED for New Construction v.3 is a voluntary standard for developing high-performance sustainable buildings. Using SunGuard Advanced Architectural Glass can boost your LEED score in up to five categories, for up to 34 total points.
SunGuard’s potential LEED points include the Regional Materials category. That’s because, in many cases, there will be an independent Guardian Select Fabricator within 500 miles of your project, reducing energy use to transport your glass.
To qualify as LEEDcertified, a building must score at least 40 points. Higher levels of compliance are possible, as shown below.
Although LEED does not certify a specific product, using SunGuard Solar Protection Glass can help you earn up to 34 LEED points.
