Recycled Bronze Hardware from Rocky Mountain Hardware
Wednesday August 06, 2008 - Rocky Mountain Hardware is certified by third-party Scientific Certification Services to contain a minimum of 72% recycled bronze. This percentage breaks down to a minimum of 50% post-consumer recycled bronze with the balance contributed from pre-consumer recycled bronze. Beyond being eco-conscious, this fine hardware boasts precision craftsmanship and attention to detail, along with a lifetime warranty.
Family-owned and operated, Rocky Mountain Hardware is made in the U.S, at an Idaho facility that extends the companyâ€™s green commitment. When the company expanded their headquarters, they turned to LEED certification standards for guidance. The result: the use of potable water was reduced by 42%, 79% of the construction waste was recycled, 31% of the total building materials include recycled content and the manufacturing closed loop water recycling system saves an estimated 700,000 gallons per year. In addition, 86% of regularly occupied work spaces are illuminated by daylight. Rocky Mountain Hardware is currently seeking LEED certification for new construction.
