VELO Leed Qualification

The Fuga & Veltia Hand Dryer LEED Certification

The Velo Fuga & Veltia Hand Dryer qualifies as a green product and as such can help a project achieve a LEED rating. The Velo Fuga & Veltia Hand Dryer is considered green because it conserves energy, manages loads, and reduces operational waste and pollution. Based on these green attributes, buildings with a Velo Fuga & Veltia Hand Dryer installed can apply for LEED energy efficiency points.

Green Cleaning: High Performance Cleaning Program (IAQ Credits 3.1)

Energy and Atmosphere - Minimum Energy Performance (EA Prerequisite 2, Credit 1)

The intent of the Minimum Energy Performance prerequisite is to establish a minimum level of operating energy efficiency performance for the building and systems. The implementation of energy-saving operational and management practices and/or energy-efficiency retrofits to reduce energy use to the required level will satisfy this prerequisite. Once this prerequisite is satisfied, 2 to 15 LEED points can be obtained in the Energy and Atmosphere, Optimize Energy Performance, category depending on the building’s energy efficiency.

Materials and Resources - Sustainable Purchasing and Solid Waste Management (MR Prerequisites 1 & 2, Credits 1.1 – 1.3 and Credits 7.1 – 7.2)

The intent of the Sustainable Purchasing Policy prerequisite (MR Prerequisite 1) is to reduce the environmental impact of materials acquired for use in the operations, maintenance, and upgrades of buildings and the intent of the Solid Waste Management Policy prerequisite (MR Prerequisite 2) is to reduce the amount of waste and toxins that are hauled to and disposed of in landfills or incineration facilities. Once these prerequisites are satisfied, 1 to 5 points may be obtained in the Materials and Resources, Sustainable Purchasing – Ongoing Consumables and Solid Waste Management – Ongoing Consumables categories.

Indoor Environmental QualityGreen Cleaning: High Performance Cleaning Program (IAQ Credits 3.1)

The intent of the indoor environmental quality is to reduce the exposure of building occupants and maintenance personal to potentially hazardous chemical, biological and particulate contaminants, which adversely affect air quality, human health, building finishes, building systems and the environment
