LEED Certification Points

SolarFree Sun Control Window Film is a component of LEED Sustainable Design, helping your building earn anywhere from 2 to 11 LEED points.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
, is a 3rd party building certification program output by the US Green Building Council. The program is designed to: 

Transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life. 

With this goal in mind, LEED certifies projects, not products. The purpose of certifying projects instead of products is that it puts an emphasis on the buildings end results instead of a prescriptive requirement. Although some of the credits have prescriptive requirements, the credits have all been written such that if the intent of the credit is achieved a project will receive points. Thus, the LEED handbook is written such that there is a credit title, intent of the credit, and then recommended, but not prescriptive, methods to obtain the credit. Below is a list of areas where Window Films may apply to the intent of a credit, and the recommended documentation/method for applying for the credit. This does not in any way imply that window films will satisfy the requirement for the LEED credit, but the product will work toward the intent of the credit. Credits can only be given by the USGBC. These credits apply to LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations version 2.2.
