New Chicago Faucets Low-Flow Electronic Faucets Brochure Highlights Options to meet LEED v4.

The 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 reduction.
“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.
