LEED Potential of Flexible Trim Product: DuraFlexTM
Cured Polyurethane


MR Credit 1.3 Building Reuse: Maintain 50% of Interior Non Structural Elements 1 point

The LEED rating system rewards project teams for utilizing reused building products.


Flexible trim as part of the casework or a cabinetry system can be included in the overall calculation for determining the percentage of reused materials in order to comply with MR Credit 1.3.

MR Credit 2.1 Construction Waste Management: Divert 50% from Disposal1 point

MR Credit 2.2 Construction Waste Management: Divert 75% from Disposal1 point

LEED requires 50% of non-structural elements reused in order to gain a point in this credit category with a second point available through reuse of 75% of the products. The calculation is completed either by weight or volume of the materials to be reused.

DuraFlex flexible trim is strong, reusable and the trim can be redirected to another construction site for installation in another building, donated to a charity, or it can be salvaged during deconstruction and resold.

MR Credit 3.1 Materials Reuse 5% 1 point

MR Credit 3.2 Materials Reuse 10% 1 point

This LEED Credit requires salvaged, refurbished or reused materials to be selected by the project team such that the sum of the materials constitute at least 5%, based on cost, of the total value of the materials on the project. A second point is available for using 10% reused materials on the project.

The durability and strength of the DuraFlex Cured Polyurethane flexible trim means project teams can reuse the product in projects where reclaimed building materials are a priority.

MR Credit 5.1 Regional Materials: 10% Extracted, Processed & Manufactured Regionally 1 point

MR Credit 5.2 Regional Materials: 20% Extracted, Processed & Manufactured Regionally 1 point

The product ingredients must be extracted, processed and manufactured all within a 500 mile radius. The regional materials percentage is determined by the cost of the total material value. If only a fraction of a product or material is extracted/ harvested/ recovered and manufactured locally, then only that percentage (by weight) can contribute to the regional value.

ResinArt produces the DuraFlex products in Southern California (Zip Code: 92627) and in North Carolina (Zip Code: 28732). Products shipped within this region have less embodied energy than product from outside the region.

EQ Credit 3.2 Construction IAQ Management Plan¬Before Occupancy 1 point

Perform an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Management Plan with a building flush-out, before or after occupancy; or conduct air quality testing after construction and prior to occupancy according to EPA standards. The VOC levels cannot exceed 500 micrograms per cubic meter.
