PLANET Neo 62 contributes to satisfying LEED® credits
ALsistem and Habitech have announced the conclusion of product mapping for the Planet Neo 62 solution.
The system designed by ALsistem and made with upcycled aluminium has proved to be a benchmark product for green innovation.
Habitech - Trentino Technology District has acknowledged the value of Planet Neo 62 through product mapping in accordance with LEED standards, and inclusion in the exclusive database of products that satisfy the requirements of the LEED green map credits.
The database is on-line at www.greenmap.it and is available for designers, architects and professionals who want to obtain specific product information, with particular details relating to eco-compatibility and energy savings, which are useful for specifications aiming to achieve significant sustainability targets.
The analysis on the upcycled system was carried out according to LEED standards for New Constructions & Major Renovation v. 3, LEED Italia for New Constructions and Renovations, and GBC HOME, and joins the already consolidated industry accreditation issued by Bureau Veritas.
"This is another great success that continues to highlight the characteristics and performance of a product that we can define as unique to its kind, complete, high-performing, sustainable, innovative, and placed in the market at a price similar to a conventional frame. That's the value of Italian design and expertise", commented Valentino Fresia (ALsistem Chairman).
"The analysis of the upcycled PLANET product emphasised its sustainability features, consolidated by the certificate issued by a third party for content of recycled material. As far as ALsistem is concerned the mapping is a way of introducing the company to designers that work with LEED, and also represents further progress on the path of innovation the company has undertaken", commented Erika Endrizzi, the contact person for the Habitech Product Mapping Service.
