Walker Glass Continues Sustainable Development with Two New EPDs

Walker Glass released a new third-party verified Environmental Product Declarations on acid-etched glass, as well as on acid-etched mirror and unetched mirror.

The verification and publication of Type III Environmental Product Declarations were carried out in accordance with ISO 14025:2006 and ISO 21930:2017 as well as the rules for the product categories c-PCR-009 Flat glass products (EN17074:2019) published by The International EPD System.

One EPD covers acid-etched and unetched mirrors, while the other addresses full-surface Walker Textures acid-etched glass, including etched products with a low-e coating on surface two. According to Walker's research, these two EPDs are the only ones of their kind on the market.

What the company is saying

“These new versions of our EPDs are examples of Walker’s continued commitment to the environment and sustainable development. These tools will be most helpful for architects and developers in selecting sustainable materials that provide full transparency regarding their make up, materials that will contribute to a better tomorrow,” says Charles Alexander, vice president of sales and marketing.

“The new EPDs on acid-etched glass, including the option with energy-efficient coating, are further proof that Walker remains attentive to the needs of architects and their desire for materials that meet the highest environmental standards,” says Marc Deschamps, director of products and business development.
