CSH (Code for Sustainable Homes)
The Green Guide, which underpins the Materials section of the Code for Sustainable Homes, confirms the strong contribution that PVC building products make towards sustainable construction.
By referring to the Green Guide (www.greenguide.org.uk), specifiers and contractors will find that PVC Roofline and Cladding products from Swish can help them achieve maximum material points under the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Swish Cellular PVC roofline products qualify for 3 points as a Tier 1 product under the section dealing with Responsible Sourcing of Finishing Elements.
PVC Cladding installed over timber framing carries an A+ rating. This allows developers to claim the maximum three points available under the CSH for just such an external wall system (Mat1). In addition, under Responsible Sourcing of Basic Building Elements (Mat2), Swish PVC Cladding qualifies for 3 points as a Tier 1 product.
Tier 1 products in PVC are those where the manufacturer has obtained BES6001 Responsible Sourcing Certification.
