EPD for hinge
29th January 2019
YALE DOOR AND WINDOW SOLUTIONS has gained a product-specific Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certification for its Revolution window hinge which provides environmental information on the product and the materials used to make it.
It also details the manufacturing processes involved, including the environmental implications of the raw material used, energy efficiency, transportation impact, and waste generation.
Paul Atkinson, Sales and Commercial Director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, comments: "This latest EPD certification is a key part of our commitment to providing customers with a range of sustainable products. The Revolution hinge already offers class-leading functionality and quality, so the addition of an EPD positions the product as both an industry and environmental leader."
The hinge is available in 27 sizes that can accommodate sash heights ranging from 300 mm to 1,780 and can form part of a PAS 24 window set. It is also fully BBA certified, made in the UK and compatible with PVCu, timber and aluminium window types.
