PEP now available for our Free Standing Cabinets!

Monday, November 14, 2016
At Legrand®, our sustainability commitment translates into greater benefits and tangible value for our customers, business partners, employees, and the broader community.  We are happy to announce that a Product Environmental Profile (PEP) is now available for all Legrand Data Communications free standing cabinets. 

Legrand free-standing cabinet systems for data communications can be leveraged to contribute up to 5 points for your building project under the following LEED v4 credits.  Our Product Environmental Profile (PEP), a type of EPD specifically for electronic, electric, and HVAC equipment, is one of three ways Legrand can help our customers on high performance building projects.

  • Building Product Disclosure and Optimization - Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) (1 pt)
    • Credit qualification: Use at least 20 different permanently installed products sourced from at least five different manufacturers that have a product-specific Type III EPD.
    • Legrand free-standing cabinets are covered by a PEP.
  • Building product disclosure and optimization - sourcing of raw materials (1 pt).
    • Credit qualification: Use products that have recycled content for at least 25%, by cost, of the total value of permanently installed building products in the project. Recycled content is the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus one half the pre-consumer recycled content, based on cost. Products meeting recycled content criteria are valued at 100% of their cost for the purposes of credit achievement calculation.
    • Legrand free-standing cabinets contain recycled content. Contact your sales rep to find out more.
  • Construction and Demolition Waste Management (2 pts)
    • Credit qualification: On a project site, do not generate more than 2.5 pounds of construction waste per square foot (12.2 kilograms of waste per square meter) of the building's floor area.
    • Legrand free-standing cabinets are delivered fully assembled with optional accessories, reducing setup time and unnecessary construction waste on your project.
