PRISM asked building materials manufacturers for information about some of their latest and/or most innovative sustainable products which architects might considering specifying for their next project. We asked manufacturers why an architect would specify their product and where an one could find more information.
PRISM compiled this information in a guide, listing products by category types in alphabetical order. You can read the entire Specifiers’ Guide to Green Building Products or click on a category or company listed below for specific information.
Our goal is to grow this to include additional sustainable building products while listing some of the more innovative products which have proven timeless. We invite architects, specifiers, consultants, facility managers, and anyone else involved in specifying building materials, to give us feedback and make requests for products you are most interested in seeing.

3M™ Commercial Window Film
3M Sun Control Window films reduce the solar heat gain coefficient of current windows to reduce the solar load entering a building. The building HVAC system will have a smaller load to cool, thus reducing operational energy use. 3M™ Thinsulate films can improve the U-value of the windows to reduce the need to run heating systems in the winter as well.
In remodeling projects, 3M Sun Control Films can be used to upgrade the current windows rather than replacing them. This decreases project waste by not sending the windows to a landfill.
