Style Partitions has become the first ever UK supplier of EPD certified moveable walls.
The EPD (Environmental Product Declaration), which applies to DORMA’s Variflex, Moveo and Varitrans products, is the pinnacle of product sustainability and of importance to anyone seeking sustainable solutions for BREEAM, LEED and SKA rating certification.
The announcement has seen Style receive huge plaudit from many of the architects, specifiers and contractors it works with, making this one of the most significant developments in the moveable wall sector for many years.
“We cannot underestimate what a significant advancement this is,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director.
“An EPD communicates the environmental performance of a product. For each product a life cycle analysis (LCA) is carried out in accordance with ISO 14040, and by having an EPD means architects and contractors can participate in tenders involving sustainable building certification procedures.
“A huge amount of work has been put into achieving this certification, confirming our position as market leader in the provision of sustainable operable wall systems.”
The EPD covers a number of key criteria including global warming potential (GWP), the cumulative energy demand (CED) arising from each products’ manufacture, the total weight of the production waste recycled at the pre-consumer stage and the post-consumer recycling at the end of the product’s life.
“This underpins our commitment to delivering sustainable solutions,” said Julian, “and we would be delighted to hear from anyone who would like more information regarding the benefits EPD offers.”
