IAPMO R&T Provides First Green Certification for Commercial Plumbing Systems to Sloan
Ontario, Calif. — IAPMO R&T, a leading provider of third-party certification services for a wide range of construction-related products throughout North America, has completed Green Certification for Sloan Valve Company’s high-efficiency toilets (HET) and high-efficiency urinals (HEU). Sloan is the first manufacturer to earn this certification for non-residential, commercial plumbing products.
Sloan similarly received a listing under IAPMO R&T’s Green Certification program for its new HMA7000 model of the AQUS® water reuse system for residential and light commercial projects.
Green Certification through IAPMO R&T, an ANSI-accredited independent third party certification body, provides qualifying manufacturers with an optional product listing to green codes, standards and rating systems. The program identifies and tests products that are water-efficient based on water use reduction when compared to the water use baseline indicated in each specification. Green Certification helps contractors, inspectors, architects and engineers quickly identify products that satisfy the requirements of the various green rating systems and standards that govern the building industry.
Sloan’s Green Certification shows each of the applicable products to be compliant with:
• IAPMO’s Green Plumbing and Mechanical Code Supplement
• 2010 California Green Building Standards (CALGreen)
• Green Building Initiative’s Green Globes®
