by Brianna Crandall — February 8, 2017 — Carlisle SynTec Systems, a manufacturer of single-ply membrane roofing systems for more than half a century and a business segment of Carlisle Construction Materials, recently issued environmental product declarations (EPDs) for the company’s EPDM, TPO, PVC and KEE HP single-ply roofing membranes.
Created and verified in accordance with International Standard ISO 14025, environmental product declarations summarize the ways in which a product affects the environment throughout its life cycle. Issuing these EPDs provides design and construction professionals with detailed, comparable information about the environmental performance of Carlisle’s single-ply membranes.
Carlisle’s product-specific EPDs can contribute toward LEED credits and have been verified by third parties (UL for TPO and EPDM, and NSF for PVC and KEE HP). This transparency and independent verification allows specifiers and purchasers to make more informed product selections when seeking to enhance a building’s overall sustainability.
Mike DuCharme, Carlisle’s director of product marketing, said:
Carlisle is committed to working with architects, contractors, and building owners to build a sustainable future. Issuing EPDs provides construction professionals with a high level of transparency regarding the environmental impacts of Carlisle’s products.
Environmental product declarations are quickly becoming a key component of the material selection process, particularly in the sustainable construction sector, says Carlisle.
