Division 22 23 Ebook Page 204 Fiberglas’ Rigid and Semi-Rigid Insulation LEED® Sheet

Owens Corning Insulation Products help improve thermal performance and control moisture in commercial, institutional and high-rise residential buildings. This document applies to the LEED New Construction and Major Renovations, LEED Commercial Interiors, LEED Core & Shell, LEED for Schools and LEED for Existing Buildings, Operations & Maintenance products. As you pursue LEED Certification, rely on the products and expertise of Owens Corning . LEED Certification and the awarding of credits, is based on the overall project design, properly designed building systems and construction assemblies, and the performance of the project as a whole. Fiberglas Insulation can be a component of many of these systems and assemblies, with all components within those systems and assemblies being considered in assessing compliance with the LEED Rating System within a given category and credit. Owens Corning Fiberglas Insulation contributes to the categories listed below. Owens Corning Fiberglas Rigid & Semi-Rigid Insulation Products: Table 1 Contribution to LEED Requirement LEED Credit Category LEED Requirement Owens Corning Product Contribution Energy and Atmosphere (EA)- Prerequisite 2: Minimum Energy Performance Credit 1: Optimize Energy Performance (1-19 points) 10% performance improvement for new buildings or 5% better performance for renovated existing buildings, with baseline building performance rating calculated per method in Appendix G of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007 for whole building simulation. Improve building performance rating compared with the baseline building performance rating, calculated per Appendix G of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007 a whole project simulation model, with points awarded per energy cost savings in LEED table. Fiberglas Insulation helps reduce building energy demand and improve thermal comfort. The project team is responsible for conducting the energy analysis to determine the overall building energy efficiency. Fiberglas Insulation helps reduce building energy demand and improve thermal comfort. The overall contribution depends on the insulation R-value, the U-value of the construction assembly, and the assembly design. The project team is responsible for conducting the energy analysis to determine the overall building energy efficiency. Materials & Resources (MR)- Credit 4: Recycled Content (1-2 points) Credit 5: Regional Material (1-2 points) Materials with recycled content such that the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus of the pre-consumer content constitutes at least 10% (1 point) or 20% (2 points), based on cost, of the total value of the materials in the project. Materials/products extracted and manufactured (or fraction thereof) within 500 miles of project site for a minimum of 10% (1 point) or 20% (2 points), based on cost, of the total materials value (fractional quantities contribute as percentage by weight). Fiberglas Insulation products contain 57% pre- consumer recycled content. Recycled content certification by Scientific Certifications Systems: www.scscertified.com. Fiberglas Insulation, 1 U.S. manufacturing plant provides regionally available material manufactured and sourced within a 500 mile radius of project locations in many areas of the country. Fiberglas Insulation plant locations are shown in Fig. 1 with approximate 500-mile radii for each plant. Contact 1-800-GET PINK for additional information.
