The product

Since September 2010, HI-MACS® has offered Eden a wide range of colours, 12% to 40% of which comes from recycling. The Eden collection is certified by the Scientific  Certification System (SCS) and allows a building to earn 1 or 2 LEED credits. A definite benefit for constructing a sustainable building.

The environmentally-friendly properties of HI-MACS® are supported by internationally recognised certificates: without exception all HI-MACS® products are manufactured to comply with the ISO 9001 quality process for systems and processes and conform to the environmental standards laid down in ISO 14001.
