Almost two years after the publication of its first EPD on full surface acid-etched glass, Walker Glass is proud to publish a third-party-verified environmental product declaration on patterned acid-etched glass and on all of its AviProtek® bird friendly glass solutions.
Walker has earned Type III Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) verification and registration in conformance with certification requirements of ISO standard 14025. This EPD includes the Nuance product line patterns, Traction anti-slip glass and, all three of its AviProtek® bird friendly glass solutions.
Under the LEED v4 program the EPD helps building owners earn points under the Materials and Resources category for Building Product Disclosure and Optimization. In an effort to best inform interested parties, Walker has also published an Environmental Data Sheet that consolidates into one document all product environmental attributes, declarations and certifications for the AviProtek® bird friendly glass products.
“This new EPD is yet another example of Walker’s commitment to the environment. To my knowledge, ours is the first and only EPD that directly addresses bird friendly glass, further reinforcing Walker’s unique value proposition and leadership position in the bird friendly market. For us, it was a natural considering the California bill AB262 that will be enacted in 2020.” said Charles Alexander, Business Development Manager.
