Harbinger Flooring in Canada: LEED CERTIFICATION

We recommend that you use the following information regarding Harbinger and LEED certification for your LEED-related projects when you submit a bid or in the event that your end user seeks LEED certification following the completion of installation.

LEED is the world's leading system for certifying green buildings. Harbinger products qualify for LEED credits under these LEED programs: NC (new construction) and CI (commercial interiors).  

All Harbinger products meet the following qualifications: 

  1. MR 4.2 NC/CI Recycled Content: 60% (post-consumer + 1/2 pre-consumer)
  2. EQ 4.1 NC/CI Low-Emitting Materials: adhesives and sealants

The Harbinger flooring products have been independently tested and certified and have met the requirements of the State of California Section 01350 regarding volatile organic compound emissions, thereby qualifying them for use in schools and offices within the state of California.

Furthermore, Harbinger certifies that our adhesive S600 complies with the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) limits set by the South Coast Air Quality Management District.  It is mandatory that these limits be met in order to meet the requirements of the U.S. National Green Building Council LEED program for Indoor Environmental Quality. Harbinger S600 adhesive goes beyond complying with VOC limits by inhibiting the growth of a variety of molds, mildews, and bacteria within its adhesive. 

Harbinger has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to recycling and reusing 100% of its pre-consumer waste in accordance with LEED for the Materials and Resources category.  A large portion of the weight of our product may be comprised of this pre-consumer waste, which is recycled during our manufacturing process. The production and manufacturing process of Harbinger S600 adhesive incorporates approximately 8 to 10% post-consumer recycled materials. 

Harbinger Floors manufacturing facilities have traditionally streamlined their operational requirements to minimize material waste and to maximize the recycling and reuse the pre-consumer waste materials and post-consumer waste materials.  In addition, all raw materials used in the manufacture of our product are sourced within 200 kilometers of our manufacturing facility.

The goal of our company is to develop products that will provide the best indoor air quality, aesthetics, and performance for decades to come.
