Recycled Content MR 4.0
Steel studs, MSC connectors and reinforcing mesh contain between 30.47% and 80% recycled content, 23.5% to 30% post consumer scrap, 6.4% to 70% pre consumer scrap (depending on the steel manufacturer). Concrete may contain fly ash when required.
Regional Materials MR 5.0
Locally extracted materials, manufactured within 500 miles of any project in the USA.
Optimize energy performance
Steel stud cavities may be insulated with various insulation products. Exterior joints are backer rod and caulked. Foil faced insulation board installed on the interior decreases inside air flow and thermal transfer, optimizing energy performance.
