Specifiers’ Guide to Green Building Products

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.

Guide to Green Building – Product of the Week

3M™ Sun Control Window Films provide a cost-effective solution for meeting building codes for Solar Heat Gain Coefficient or U-value. Window films are effective in reducing glare, providing occupant comfort by reducing hot spots from the sun’s heat and providing UV protection to building interiors. 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.
