Ametco powder coating process is solvent free. The powder is formulated using finley ground pigments and resins with zero solvents resulting in a clean air finish and next to zero VOCs. The electrostatic powder to substrate process equates to very little overspray, of which 98% can be retrieved and reused. This would qualify for LEED points only if it is used indoors. Ametco is continuing to work on improving their product line. These changes may increase the LEED points your project can earn.


Mapes glazing and extruded aluminum products can perform at higher levels beyond the scope of the standards in the LEED rating system. In such cases, project teams have several options when specifying Mapes high performance architectural systems, including a request for a Credit Interpretation Ruling (CIR) from the USGBC Technical and Scientific Advisory Committee. Another strategy is to document the exemplary performance of Mapes assemblies from a whole building design perspective in the LEED Innovation in Design credit category.


Progressive Design Playgrounds designs and manufactures state-of-the-art and environmentally friendly commercial children's playground equipment and recreation site furnishings. Each Progressive Design Playgrounds play structure is created through a unique process of transforming tens of thousands of recycled milk containers into 100% HDPE (high-density polyethylene) recycled plastic lumber (RPL). By replacing conventional playground materials with this futuristic plastic, each play structure saves anywhere from 10 to 20 trees and effectively utilizes millions of recycled milk containers each year that would otherwise be filling up precious landfill space.
