Walker Glass has released third-party verified Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for both acid-etched glass and acid-etched mirror/unetched mirror. An EPD is a report that states what a product is made of and how it impacts the environment throughout its entire life cycle.
The manufacturer of glazing products says that one EPD covers acid-etched and unetched mirrors, while the other addresses full-surface Walker Textures® acid-etched glass, including etched products with a low-E coating on surface two.
The verification and publication of Type III EPDs were carried out by ISO 14025:2006 and ISO 21930:2017, says Walker.
“These new versions of our EPDs are examples of Walker’s continued commitment to the environment and sustainable development,” says Charles Alexander, vice president of sales and marketing. “These tools will be most helpful for architects and developers in selecting sustainable materials that provide full transparency regarding their makeup – materials that will contribute to a better tomorrow.”
Marc Deschamps, director of products and business development, says that the new EDPs on acid-etched glass is proof that Walker is focused on the needs of architects and their desire for materials that meet the highest environmental standards.
