EA Prerequisite 2 Minimum Energy Performance NC CS S

Establish the minimum level of energy efficiency for the proposed building and systems to reduce environmental and economic impacts associated with excessive energy use.Norton door closers insure exterior door openings are latched and closed, reducing airinfiltration and saving 10% or more in improved energy efficiency.

EA Credit 1 Optimize Energy Performance NC CS S

Achieve increasing levels of energy performance beyond the prerequisite standard to reduce environmental and economic impacts associated with excessive energy use. Norton door closers insure exterior door openings are latched and closed, reducing air infiltration and saving 10% or more in improved energy efficiency.

MR Credit 4 Recycled Content NC CS S CI

Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, therebyreducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials. Use materials withrecycled content such that the sum of post consumer recycled content plus 1/2 of the pre-consumercontent constitutes at least 10% or 20%, based on cost, of the total value of the materials in theproject. The recycled content value of a material assembly is determined by weight. The recycledfraction of the assembly is then multiplied by the cost of assembly to determine the recycledcontent value. Almost all NORTON solutions contain recycled content, allowing most of ourproducts to contribute toward this credit.

*Recycled content defined in accordance with industry standards.**Pre-consumer recycled content refers to waste material that is immediately placed back into the production cycle. Waste materials generated by the production of these products are collected and shipped off site where it then reenters the recycle stream. *** Must specify if a metal or ABS cover is needed for 7500 or 8000 closers. Use M for metal, G for ABS.

MR Credit 5 Regional Material NC CS S (CI allows one pointif 20% material by cost is manufactured within 500 miles, second point if 10% is manufactured AND extracted, harvested or recovered)

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. Use building materials or products that have been extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project site for a minimum of 10% or 20%, based on cost, of the total materials value.

All NORTON products are manufactured/assembled in Monroe, NC with the exception of the following:

Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)

IEQ Credit 4.1 & 4.2 Low-Emitting Materials – Adhesives & Sealants, Paints & Coatings NC CS S CI

Reduce the quantity of indoor air contaminants that are odorous, irritating and/or harmful to the comfort and well-being of installers and occupants. This credit only applies to materials applied within the weatherproofing system, NORTON products should have no impact on LEED projects achieving this credit.

IEQ Credit 5 Indoor Chemical & Pollutant Source Control NC CS S CI

Minimize building occupant exposure to potentially hazardous particulates and chemical pollutants. Sufficiently exhaust each space where hazardous gases or chemicals may be present or used (e.g., garages, housekeeping and laundry areas, copying and printing rooms) to create negative pressure with respect to adjacent spaces when the doors to the room are closed. For each of these spaces, provide self-closing doors and deck-to-deck partitions or a hard-lid ceiling. NORTON door closers should be specified on all openings where hazardous particulates and chemical pollutants may be present.

LEED for Schools Specific Credits

IEQ Credit 9 Enhanced Acoustical Performance S (NC can earn Innovation credits for Enhanced Acoustical Performance)

To provide classrooms that facilitates better teacher-to-student and student-to-student communications through effective acoustical design. Design the building shell, classroom partitions and other core learning space partitions to meet the Sound Transmission Class (STC) requirements of ANSI Standard S12.60-2002, Acoustical Performance Criteria, Design Requirements and Guidelines for Schools, except windows, which must meet an STC rating of at least 35. Norton door closers insure STC rated door openings are latched and closed, reducing sound infiltration and helping LEED projects gain credit for Enhanced Acoustical Performance.

LEED EBOM Specific Credits

MR Credit 3 Sustainable Purchasing - Facility Alterations & Additions EBOM

Reduce the environmental and air quality impacts of the materials acquired for use in the upgrade of buildings. Maintain a sustainable purchasing program covering materials for facility renovations, demolitions, refits and new construction additions. NORTON can help sustainable purchasing programs meet many of the requirements to obtain this credit.

MR Credit 9 Solid Waste Management - Facility Alterations & Additions EBOM

To divert construction and demolition debris from disposal to landfills and incineration facilities. Redirect recyclable recovered resources back to the manufacturing process and reusable materials to appropriate sites. Many of NORTON products can be recycled (in the case of our metal products, potentially infinitely) and reused. We strive to make durable sustainable products that can assist projects in attaining this credit.
