LEED

P+P Artec focuses on setting new standards in the design and technology of GREEN Stainless Steel Railings. Stainless Steel has a very long life as a durable substrate, resisting corrosion and oxidation in interior railing systems and exterior railing environments. Stainless steel is 100% recyclable into the same product with no reduction in quality. The metal's high scrap value and recyclability ensures that it is diverted from landfills and recaptured for use in new stainless steel railing systems. Stainless steel has provided up to 80 years of service in high profile architecture projects without appearance deterioration or metal replacement. When properly selected, fabricated, and maintained, it should last the life of the structure, even if that life extends over centuries.

P + P Artec LEED Qualification
This is to certify that all stainless steel products by P + P Artec, Inc contain a minimum of 67% post-consumer recycled content. Post-consumer material is defined as waste material generated by households or by commercial, industrial and institutional facilities in their role as end-users of the product, which can no longer be used for its intended purpose.

Pre-consumer material is defined as material diverted from the waste stream during the manufacturing process. Excluded is reutilization of materials such as rework, regrind or scrap generated in a process and capable of being reclaimed within the same process that generated it.

P + P Artec is pleased to qualify for LEED MR Credit 4.1 and MR Credit 4.2
