Unicel’s Vision Control Integrated Louvers Product Now Certified for Validated Eco-Declarations
Unicel Architectural, manufacturer of privacy and daylight control solutions, announced today the successful completion of an environmental and health audit by Vertima for its Vision Control® and Vision Control® Mini integrated louvers products. Vertima is an independent third party that audits and certifies Validated Eco-Declarations® for construction product manufacturers. To obtain a Validated Eco-Declaration® from Vertima, manufacturers must undergo a rigorous and transparent analysis process.
The Vision Control® and Vision Control® Mini insulating glass with integrated louvers products now feature Health Product Declaration® (HPD) certifications and are listed in the mindful MATERIALS Library. HPD is the leading industry standard for reporting building product content and associated health information, and mindful MATERIALS (mM) provides information on human health and environmental impacts for products from leading manufacturers.
“These environmental certifications for the Vision Control® product line are an essential part of our mission to help create greener, safer and healthier spaces,” said Samuel Doyon-Bissonnette, head of engineering at Unicel. “Whether for a hospital, school or commercial center, our privacy and shading solutions are guaranteed to contribute to both building sustainability and occupants’ wellbeing. Architects who specify our products can get the benefit of our chemical ingredients disclosure and can contribute to LEED® and other important green building certification requirements.”
HPD has become the standard in terms of transparency into a material's composition and its associated health effects. Manufacturers who opt for HPDs for their products make it easier for architects to select their materials. In addition, products with an HPD report contribute to LEED v4, WELL and LBC certifications, and GOOGLE requirements.
The mindful MATERIALS Library is a multi-stakeholder initiative developed by the building industry for the building industry, providing a common platform to access and clearly communicate transparency and optimization information for building products. mindful MATERIALS is a free, brand-agnostic product library, allowing project teams and industry professionals to search for a multitude of relevant, qualified products.
Vision Control® is the market-leading product for superior daylight and privacy control – a patented, hermetically sealed glass unit combining louvers within glass that can be customized to virtually any shape for interior and exterior glazing applications. Vision Control® Mini is Unicel’s thinner louvered glazing solution for sliding door applications.
