LEED

LEED is transforming the way we think about how building spaces are designed, constructed, maintained and operated.  Our commitment as a manufacturer is to offer window covering solutions which contribute to the overall performance of a building, as well as LEED certification by controlling light and improving energy efficiency. The sections below introduce some potential areas for investigation.


Daylighting
LEED V4 - IEQ: Daylight
Hunter Douglas window coverings, solar control systems, and ceilings diffuse glare for visual comfort and move daylight into a space, reducing energy used by artificial lights.
Automation
LEED V4 - EA: Demand Response
Automated control systems for solar shading and window coverings can maximize energy reduction and light control by dynamically adjusting to the position of the sun.
Energy Reduction
LEED V4 - EA: Optimize Energy Performance
Energy-saving building envelopes, with shading systems that control solar heat gain or ventilated façades that help moderate temperatures, can significantly upgrade performance and efficiency.
Automation
LEED V4 - IEQ: Thermal Comfort
Automated sun control systems for window coverings can maximize indoor comfort by allowing occupants management over thermal control and light levels.
Indoor Environmental Quality
LEED V4 - IEQ: Low Emitting Materials
Perfect for projects where air quality is a priority. Nearly all Hunter Douglas products meet low emissions standards for GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Gold certification.
Recycled Content
LEED NC 2.2 - MR 4.1, 4.2
Using both pre-consumer and post-consumer materials, many Hunter Douglas systems feature recycled components in steel, aluminum, and HDPE plastics.
Regionally Manufactured Product
LEED NC 2.2 - MR 5.1, 5.2
A network of manufacturing facilities and fabrication plants allows Hunter Douglas to provide local supply sources for many products to locations across North America and around the world.
