Consideration for the circular economy has always been a top priority for Lindner Group KG, a building product manufacturer based in Arnstorf, Germany. Three years ago, the company committed to that mission in a more formal manner by taking the first steps toward Cradle to Cradle certification.
Lindner certified its first product, the NORTEC raised-floor system, in January 2017. The interior system, certified Cradle to Cradle Silver, consists of factory-made, pre-finished, modular components; their assembly and construction allows access to the floor cavity, such as to perform maintenance of HVAC systems, by lifting any panel.
NORTEC was followed this summer by the LMD metal ceiling, a modular system available in hook-on, post-cap, cassette, baffle, corridor, or canopy formats. The Silver-level certification includes a Platinum rating for water stewardship, in part due to a manufacturing process that uses a closed water cycle process, as well as a Gold rating for social fairness.
