Credits 1.2 & 1.3 ( Building Reuse)
In renovation projects, Nelplas® crash rails and handrails can be installed over existing retainers, maintaining the existing walls.

By recycling wall protection products through the Korogreen Recycling Program, customers are able to divert construction waste from landfills.
Credits 4.1 & 4.2 (Recycled Content)
Several standard Nelplas® corner guards, crash rails, and handrails contain more than 40% pre-consumer recycled material, and can contribute to a building achieving recycled content points.
