The Green Product Line
Hensel’s Green Product line incorporates all its non-VOC fire-protection products which have qualified as building materials for ecological construction by virtue of the fact that their percentage of volatile organic compounds (VOC) is below the detection limit. These products thus fulfil the requirements in the 10/2010 DIBt reports on “Zulassungsgrundsätzen zur gesundheitlichen Bewertung von Bauprodukten in Innenräumen” (“Approval principles for the health-related evaluation of building products in indoor spaces”) in conjunction with the LCI values issued by the AgBB (Committee for the health-related evaluation of building products). They are thus also recommended for use in public buildings that must comply with the assessment criteria contained in “Nachhaltiges Bauen für Bundesgebäude” (Guidelines for sustainable building) issued by the German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building, and Urban Development.
Hensel Green Products are free of emissions, VOC-free or at least low-VOC formulations. Depending on the application, these products are, for example, classified in emission class A+, meet the requirements of LEED / LEED v4 or the AgBB evaluation scheme. The product certificates earn architects and planners credit points for the sustainable assessment of buildings and thus enable excellent building certifications according to BREEAM, LEED or the DGNB system.
