Andersen Corporation announced today its first two Health Product Declarations® (HPDs) for the Andersen® E-Series Casement/Awning window and Andersen® E-Series Auxiliary window.
“Publishing a Health Product Declaration is an important step in Andersen’s product transparency evolution,” said Andersen product sustainability manager Jon Smieja. “Our company has a longstanding commitment to durability, energy efficiency and sustainable materials. These HPDs bolster our continued commitment to expand customer visibility into ingredient health and sourcing.”
Developed by the Health Product Collaborative, an organization that provides a standardized approach to product ingredient transparency, HPDs act as a reporting tool to standardize the disclosure of all ingredients in a product. The tool allows specifiers to make informed decisions on product purchasing specific to sustainability and material health.
HPDs help building industry decision makers including architects, designers, builders and contractors evaluate products based on how they will impact a building’s environment and its occupants.
Andersen’s E-Series HPDs help provide LEED® material ingredients credits for customers pursuing LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) v4 without compromising design aesthetics. With Andersen’s E-Series windows, customers have the freedom to custom-create the space they desire with colors, dramatic sizes, dynamic shapes and exotic woods.
