Highlights Options to meet LEED v4.
brochure, Low-Flow Electronic Faucets for LEED® v4,
discusses the new LEED v4 requirements and the corresponding
Public Lavatory (Restroom) Faucet baseline levels.
Specifications for Chicago Faucets products that comply with
the criteria are given as possible solutions, such as the EQ
Series, E-Tronic® 40 and HyTronic® Series faucets that
deliver up to 30% reduction in water usage.
LEED v4, the newest version of the LEED
certification requirements, provides guidance and standards
for green buildings across nine categories. The Water
Efficiency (WE) category comprises three major components:
indoor water use, irrigation water and water metering. LEED
v4 projects can earn up to 6 points for indoor water use
“The biggest change to the WE category is the elimination of
the 0.25 gallons per cycle criteria for metering faucets.
Under the current requirement electronic faucets must meet a
20% GPM reduction from the public lavatory baseline,” says
Adam Molberger, product manager for Chicago Faucets.
