See below how Gypsum Ceilings by Gyproc can contribute to LEED criteria: Optimize energy performance
To achieve increasing levels of energy performance beyond the prerequisite standard to reduce environmental and economic harms associated with excessive energy use.
The project’s energy performance is assessed and compared to the baseline. Points are awarded according to the percentage of improvement between the two (see table below).
Read the detailed requirement for Optimize Energy Performance
GYPROC systems help increase the thermal performance of the building, depending on the type of insulation used, and enable energy reduction and cost savings in heating and air-conditioning by minimizing energy loss in winter and overheating in summer.
GYPROC ceiling systems and GYPROC systems incorporating glass mineral wool thermal insulation in buildings can help reduce heat loss in cool climate and heat gains in hot climate.
GYPROC products contribute significantly to drywall and masonry constructions designed to achieve high levels of air-tightness in buildings.
Gyproc products are specially formulated to achieve high levels of air tightness, contributing to a better energy performance
Gypsum plasterboard system
By combining insulation products and plasterboard, we can achieve an advanced level of thermal insulation.
