The SmartWood Program of the Rainforest Alliance has certified Hoover Treated Wood Products Inc. as a Multi-Site Chain of Custody company. This assessment is in compliance with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) accreditation manual. As a multi-site SmartWood Chain of Custody company, each of the Hoover manufacturing facilities can process and ship FSC certified wood. This national distribution affords the timely introduction of products to satisfy the requirements for certified wood. As the nation’s largest supplier of fire retardant treated wood for commercial construction projects, Hoover's products are designed to meet the demands of the LEED® building rating system, which requires that wood products carry an FSC chain of custody.
Sto manufactures several products that help reduce a building's overall impact on the environment and thus can contribute to a project's ability to earn points toward LEED certification. Sto offers coatings, waterproofing materials, repair mortars and surface preparation products that can be used to restore surfaces of many types, including masonry, cement block, and even painted surfaces. For a more extensive makeover, StoTherm™ Insulated Wall Claddings can also be applied over most surfaces, providing a new look with the added benefit of increased energy efficiency.
