All the popular "Green Talk" at this point is becoming a little over the top, and difficult for most of us to follow. We do not know very many products more "Green" than metal. For the one material that is used in everything, and we mean everything, it is 100% recyclable, energy efficient, and has extremely low maintenance requirements. We could write paragraph after paragraph about this agency and that agency but the facts will not change no matter how we report them. Metal has been around for a long time, and will be around for time to come, and is the most sustainable product around. We are proud to manufacture out of this material. If we drill all the way down into how our metal is produced to see how it compares in "Greeness" to other companies metal you will find that ours raw material sources.
The Majority of our material is Hot Dipped Galvanized Product. Hot-dip galvanized (HDG) steel is 100% recyclable and has a reclamation rate for zinc and steel of 80% and 100%, respectively. Based on such a high recycling rate, HDG steel may contribute one point/credit toward LEED® certification under both paragraph 4.1 and 4.2 of the Materials & Resources Credit 4: Recycled Content category.
