LEED® Rating System

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) system is a voluntary national standard for developing high-performance sustainable developments. Below is a chart outlining how LEED points can be achieved with the State Window Corporation MC5 Unitized Window Wall System:

Energy & Atmosphere
Materials & Resources
  • Recycled Content

    Intent - Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing the impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials.

    MC5 Performance

    Obtained by using building materials that contain recycled content:

    - Aluminum is (on average) 70% recycled content.

    - Glass in (on average) 20%-25% recycled content.

    - Hardware is (on average) 85%-95% recycled content.

    - Cardboard packaging is (on average) 20%-24% recycled content.

  • Regional Materials

    Intent - Increase demand for building materials and products that are extracted and manufactured within the region, thereby supporting the use of indigenous resources and reducing the environmental impacts resulting from transportation.

    MC5 Performance
