Toronto, ON (October 06, 2011)

BuildingGreen, Inc., publisher of GreenSpec and Environmental Building News, announced that Altro/Upo Floors CS Line/Life Line product is one of the Top-10 Green Building Products for 2012. This tenth annual award, announced at the U.S. Green Building Council’s Greenbuild Conference in Toronto, recognizes the building products representing important green building innovations for the year ahead.

“There are more ‘green’ building products than ever, but not all of them address a real need—or worse, some of them may create new problems down the road,” says BuildingGreen founder and GreenSpec executive editor Alex Wilson. “In selecting this year’s Top-10 products, we looked for companies that solved pressing needs in energy efficiency, reduced toxicity in building materials, enhanced retrofit applications and offered unique solutions in other areas.”

CS Line was chosen for its alternative to hazardous components (no halogens, phthalates, etc), its low VOCs, and its exceptional durability and low-maintenance.  The article cites Upo as the manufacturer and Altro as the supplier for North America.
