The Importance of Health Product Declarations®
HPD® documents provide a comprehensive list of a product’s ingredients and their associated effects on human health. They are prepared based on the Health Product Declaration® (HPD®) Collaborative’s open standards. HPD® documentation is used by architects and other building professionals to make informed choices when selecting building materials. This promotes transparency and consideration of human health within the built environment as a result.
The first declaration covers Walker Textures® full surface and patterned acid-etched glass. Walker’s second HPD® is dedicated to AviProtek® bird safe glass. Walker is the first company in the North American market to offer HPD certifications for its line of full surface, pattern etched and bird friendly solutions.
The declarations are third-party verified by Vertima, experts in sustainable and LEED® certified building practices.
