The AWS™ Pedestal System promotes a 'green' environment! Sustainably designed, it is constructed of fully recyclable, durable ABS and PVC plastics and 100% recycled rubber. The AWS™ Pedestal System is the natural solution for ecological concerns. That's why the AWS™ Pedestal System was chosen for the Atlanta City Hall Green Roof Project, The Built Green Idea Home 2004 (2004 winner of the Gold Nugget Grand Award for Sustainable/Green Residential Project of the Year), and the New American Home at the 2004 International Builders Show in Las Vegas. That's also why the Introductory Manual for Greening Roofs (.PDF) commissioned by the Canadian government in 2002 lists the AWS™ Pedestal System as an integral part of the green solution.
