LEED Certification.

Advancements in Cladding Support Systems. Design + Performance 

Energy efficiency and sustainability have become a major consideration in building design and construction. The CL-300 cladding support system is an environmentally responsible product that provides high-performance thermal isolation required for effective continuous insulation design.

Basic LEED certification is becoming a requirement for some types of construction in certain jurisdictions. The following pre-requisites and credits apply to LEED v4 Building Design and Construction:

Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design

Energy and Atmosphere Prerequisite

Minimum Energy Performance.

The CL 300 cladding support system has a thermally isolating polyamide clip that provides high-performing thermally broken support across the continuous insulation.

It meets and exceeds ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1–2010 since no conductive element, not even metal fasteners, penetrates the insulation layer.

New Construction.

Energy and Atmosphere Credit

Optimize Energy performance.

CL – 300 System
The credit awards points based on the degree to which the project exceeds performance of the baseline building:
The CL 300 cladding support system not only provides the required thermal break across the insulation layer, but actually exceeds ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1–2010 by eliminating any conductive fastener penetration of the insulation.

Materials and Resources Credit

Building Product Disclosure and Optimization.

Sourcing of Raw Materials Option 2 Leadership Extraction Practices (1 point)

CL 300 System
CLADIATOR systems are made largely of aluminum and can contribute to this credit. The aluminum elements have 30.5% post-consumer recycled content and may be valued at 85% of the cost of those elements in calculating the credit.
