Division 22 23 Ebook Page 206 Air Handling Insulation LEEDŽ Sheet

Owens Corning air handling insulation products help improve thermal performance, moisture control, and sound quality in commercial 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 assemblies, and the performance of the project as a whole. Owens Corning Air Handling Insulation Products can be a component of many of these systems and assemblies, with all components within those systems and assemblies considered to assess compliance with the LEED Rating System used for certification within a given category. Owens Corning Air Handling Insulation Products contribute to the categories listed below. Owens Corning Air Handling Insulation Products: Duct Liner Board Textile Duct Liner Rotary Duct Liner Duct Board Spiral Duct Liner Duct Wrap FRK and PSK Table 1 Contribution to LEED Requirement LEED Credit Category LEED Requirement Owens Corning Product Contribution Energy and Atmosphere (EA)- Prerequisite 2: Minimum Energy Performance 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. Air Handling Insulation helps reduce building energy demand while improving thermal comfort for occupants. The project team is responsible for conducting the energy analysis to determine the overall building energy efficiency. Credit 1: Optimize Energy Performance (1-19 points) 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. Air Handling Insulation helps reduce building energy demand while improving thermal comfort for the occupants. The overall contribution dependents on the R-value used and the U-value of the building system or construction assembly where insulation is used. The project team is responsible for conducting the energy analysis to determine the overall building energy efficiency. Credit 1.3: Optimize Energy Performance (HVAC) (5-10 points) 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. Air Handling Insulation helps reduce building energy demand while improving thermal comfort for the occupants. The overall contribution dependents on the R-value used and the U-value of the building system or construction assembly where insulation is used. 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). Air Handling Insulation products contain 57% total recycled content with 52% pre-consumer and 5% post- consumer. Recycled content certification by Scientific Certification Systems: www.scscertified.com.. Air Handling Insulation is made in 2 U.S. manufacturing plants to provide regionally available material manufactured and sourced within a 500 mile radius of project locations in some areas of the country. Check with local sales representative, and refer to Fig. 1 to determine finish material place of origin.
