The award-winning business magazine Sustainable Industries announced Bendheim Wall Systems’ LINIT Channel Glass by Lamberts as one of its 2008 Top 10 Green Building Products winners. Sustainable Industries’ Top 10 Green Building Products guide is an annual publication profiling industry-leading green building products selected by a panel of expert judges and the Sustainable Industries editorial team. This year’s Top 10 Green Building Products guide is the first-ever digital publication to contain 3-D images of green building products that can be manipulated by the viewer and plugged directly into actual design sketches.

Lamberts Channel Glass was selected based on its environmental performance, scalability/market impact, innovativeness, design aesthetic, value and compatibility with the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.

Profiled in the guide with accompanying 3-D images, the winners were announced today in a Sustainable Industries Webinar featuring judges from the expert panel.

“In the years Sustainable Industries has produced this trusted and popular independent guide, green building has advanced from cutting-edge to mainstream,” says Brian Back, Founding Editor and Publisher of Sustainable Industries. “But not all products with eco-monikers are as high-performing and innovative as builders and their well-intentioned clients demand. We’re confident the Top 10 Green Building Products guide provides a snapshot of some of the most innovative building materials on the market today.”
Christoph Lamberts, Co-Owner of Glasfabrik Lamberts stated, “For over 20 years Lamberts has focused its efforts on environmentally conscious production methods. As the first to use oxygen-fired furnaces we have greatly reduced the nitrogen oxide emissions by a factor of five; our advanced filtering system further reduces particulates in waste gasses. Lamberts has long focused its efforts on maximizing the use of production and post-consumer recycled glass.”
“Bendheim has long endorsed environmentally friendly production, both in our own processes and in our supplier partners,” stated Robert Jayson, President of S.A. Bendheim and Bendheim Wall Systems. “Lamberts has been one of the most progressive producers of glass for decades and we are proud to have them as our partner.”
