Garland Cables and Roadworx Cables, both manufactured by Madison Technologies, were recently identified as compliant with the Vinyl Council’s Best Environmental Practice (BEP) Guidelines.
This compliance means that under the Green Building Council of Australia’s (GBCA) Green Star rating tool, a building project can claim up to two points towards its Green Star rating.
Projects where the vinyl flooring and resilient wall coverings, cable, pipe and conduit (which together account for the majority of PVC use in buildings) meet the compliance requirements of the Best Practice Guidelines for PVC in the Built Environment Guidelines are eligible to claim the two points.
The Vinyl Council of Australia’s criteria have been developed to demonstrate Best Environmental Practice (BEP) PVC. In order to earn points under the credit; PVC pipe, conduit, wire & cable, wall coverings and flooring products must be independently verified as meeting the BEP criteria.
To identify PVC products that are compliant with the BEP guidelines of the new PVC Credit, look for this mark:
A complete range of independently verified BEP compliant cables are available from Madison Technologies, under the Garland Cables and Roadworx Cables brands including: LAN & Data, Coaxial, Instrumentation & Control, Security & Fire Control, Telephone and Audio.
