Green Building Credits

Weiser has partnered to provide products that may contribute to various green building credits such as:
LEED Credits (New Construction, Existing Buildings, Commercial Interiors, Core & Shell, and Schools)

  • Materials & Resources Credit 4 Recycled Content (1-2 points):   Use materials such that the sum of the post-consumer recycled content plus one-half of the pre-consumer content constitutes at least 10% (based on cost) of the total value of the materials in the project (20% for 2 points).

The recycled content value of a material assembly is determined by weight.  The recycled fraction of the assembly is then multiplied by the cost of the assembly to determine the recycled content value.  The total recycled content value must make up 10% of the total project cost to obtain 1 point (or 20% for two points).

LEED Canada

  • Materials & Resources Credit 4 Recycled Content (1-2 points):   Use materials such that the sum of the post-consumer recycled content plus one-half of the pre-consumer content constitutes at least 7.5% (based on cost) of the total value of the materials in the project (15% for 2 points).

The recycled content value of a material assembly is determined by weight.  The recycled fraction of the assembly is then multiplied by the cost of the assembly to determine the recycled content value.  The total recycled content value must make up 7.5% of the total project cost to obtain 1 point (or 15% for two points).

LEED for Homes

  • Innovation & Design Credit (potential 1 point): Innovative performance in Green Building categories not specifically addressed by the LEED-H Green Building Rating System.  Recycled content in products not specifically covered in credit MR 2 EPP could achieve this credit (currently hardware products are not covered in the MR 2 EPP Credit). 

NAHB Green Guidelines / National Green Building Standard

  • 604.1(2.4.1 ) Recycled Content (1 point): Use at least 2 recycled-content materials for two minor components. 
  • 610.1(7.1.1) ISO 14001 Certified Plant (1-10 points): Product manufacturer's operations and business practices include environmental management system concepts and the production facility is ISO-14001 Certified or equivalent.  Credit does not apply until all production facilities for a product are certified.

SmartKey Logo
With the introduction of our revolutionary SmartKey cylinder we have created a new platform that helps eliminate waste for future generations. The SmartKey cylinder may qualify for the Green Building Credits with the following sustainability aspects:

1. SmartKey Contributes to a Reduced Carbon Footprint – SmartKey eliminates the need for locksmiths to travel to and from the building.
2. SmartKey Improves Resource Efficiency – SmartKey eliminates waste from rekeying process, including lock pins and key cutting scraps
3. SmartKey Reduces Lock Replacements – The ease of the SmartKey system allows individuals to rekey a lock without buying a new lock assembly or contacting a locksmith
4. SmartKey Includes Recycled Content – SmartKey locks typically contain 24-27% recycled content

At Weiser, we continue to use the highest quality, recycled materials to create our products. To help our builder community reach the maximum efficiency rating we have classified our products that qualify under the following categories that can contribute towards achieving green building points for your projects.
