Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

for fire dampers, smoke control dampers as well as for volume flow controllers and - limiters

What is a EPD?

Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) form the preferential data basis for sustainable building evaluation. With the standards EN 15804, ISO 14025 and ISO 14044 the basics for the preparation of Environmental Product Declarations are internationally aligned.

The programme-holder of the EPDs in Germany is the IBU institute (Institut für Bauen und Umwelt e.V.; Institute Construction and Environment). On their website (…) the latest versions of the EPD are electronically available. EPDs, which are approved and usable all over Europe, are listed on the ECO Platform (…).

Next to the above-mentioned websites, the data in the EPDs of the products can be abstracted from the ÖKOBAUDAT (…) (a database for building materials of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conversion, Building and Nuclear Safety BMUB, accessible free of charge) as well as from the DGNB Navigator (…) (a product database of DGNB e.V.).

All Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for Wildeboer products can be downloaded at Downloads (...).
