Sound-reduction materials earn LEED credits

USG has announced that the recycled content of its Levelrock brand SRB sound-reduction board and Levelrock SRM-25 sound-reduction mat can help architects and designers qualify for LEED credits from the U.S. Green Building Council.

SRB sound board has a recycled content of 49.7 percent, of which 17 percent is post-consumer material. The SRM-25 sound mat is typically manufactured with 15 percent recycled content, 100 percent of which is preconsumer/ post-industrial material. Because these materials do not contain any CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons), cadmium or mercury, they are nonhazardous and nontoxic.

The sound board and sound mat help attenuate sound and are installed before flooring underlayment is poured. They join USG’s Levelrock 2500 green, 3500 green and RH green floor underlayments, which also contain significant amounts of recycled material, as environmentally friendly flooring products.
