Sustainable Building Materials

When you choose high-density polyethylene (HDPE) materials from Scranton Products for your restrooms, lockers, and other interior applications, you’re supporting a healthier environment both inside and outside your facility. Our HDPE products help to reduce environmental impact and offer initial and long-term improvements to the indoor air quality of your projects.

Plus all Scranton Products brands are GREENGUARD Gold Certified, which means they meet the strict certification requirements and important safety guidelines for use in schools and healthcare facilities. In fact, all of our products have a zero volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions rating thanks to their solid color throughout and no need for painting or repainting. This prestigious certification is used by the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) as well as the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building rating system.

What Makes HDPE So Eco-Friendly?

Scranton Products’ HDPE brands are made from recycled materials and are themselves also 100% recyclable. Our lockers, vanities, and partitions contain both pre- and post-consumer content and are available in 100% post-consumer material. Plus, even in our manufacturing process, we’re conscious of our impact on the environment and practice factory-responsible recycling.

Our HDPE products require no painting, which means no VOC emissions. So you can enjoy improved air quality as well as additional points that can contribute to your facility’s LEED certification. On top of all that, HDPE naturally resists mold, mildew, fungus, and bacteria, making for a safer and healthier environment inside your facility.
