Guardian Partners with ecoScorecard to Provide Sustainability Information

Designers will now be able to see all Guardian product metrics and certifications on company’s InGlass web platform

 

AUBURN HILLS, Mich.—Guardian has announced a partnership with ecoScorecard to give interior designers and architects Guardian InGlass products’ sustainability features and benefits in a free, third-party rating system.

Now when designers and architects select Guardian InGlass products, from Berman Glass editions to DiamondGuard to ShowerGuard, for a project, they’ll be able to see all of the metrics and certifications associated with them. They can immediately retrieve, calibrate and print all the sustainable information they require.

All Guardian InGlass products are available in an easy-to-navigate web platform that includes Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Green Guide for Health Care (GGHC) Labs 21, Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS), and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Home Building Guidelines.

This collaboration adds another layer to InGlass, Guardian’s new web platform for the interior design community. Users can look for glass ideas, evaluate products, consult experts and place an order all in one place.

“ecoScorecard is a natural fit for Guardian InGlass and our continuing efforts to produce products that fit with the architecture and design community’s green goals,” says Diane Turnwall, Guardian Industries director of interiors. “By simplifying the rating systems documentation process and identifying products’ environmental metrics, the tool allows us to quickly and easily provide product specifiers the information they need to achieve sustainability goals.”

“With usage rates now in the millions, the AEC community is embracing ecoScorecard for product evaluation,” says Martin Flaherty, senior vice president of communication at ecoScorecard. “We are thrilled to see manufacturers’ rapid adoption of our system, and how that is making it faster and easier for specifiers to make sustainable choices.”
