Mosa contribution details
Meet Credit Requirement
7.1(LEED CI)1.PATH 4.
Heat Island Effect - Nonroof
Building that uses light-coloured qualifying tiles (Solar Reflectance Index SRI ≥29) for the exterior
1 credit point
Selected types of Mosa tiles contribute to 1 credit point. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for specific SRI test results for the tiles of your choice.
Materials and Resources
1.2 Building re-use
Maintain at least 40% to 60% by area of the existing non-shell, non-structural components (e.g. walls, floor and ceiling systems)
40% of content: 1 point
60% of content: 2 points
50% of content:1 point
Thanks to the very long economic life span of 75 years, Mosa tiles are a good choice for contributing to credit points for future refurbishment of commercial interiors and schools.
2. Construction waste Management
Recycle and/or salvage nonhazardous construction and demolition debris
50% recyclec/salvaged: 1 point
75% recycled/salvaged: 2 points
All Mosa packaging materials are recyclable. Paper and carton is produced from unbleached, recycled paper which can be reused. Goods supplied to the USA are packed on heat treated pallets.
3.1 Material re-use
Use at least 5 to 10% (by cost) of salvaged, reused or refurbished materials as building material
5% reused materials:
1 credit point
10% reused materials:
2 credit points
Thanks to the long life span of 75 years, Mosa tiles are a good choice to get credit points for future refurbishment of CI and schools.
4. Recycled content
Sum of postconsumer recycled content plus 0.5 of preconsumer recycled content constitutes at least 10% or 20% of total cost value of project materials
10% of content:
1 credit point
20% of content:
Floor tiles: all Mosa unglazed floor tiles contain 21% preconsumer recycled material and therefore contribute to 1 point. Globalgrip / Softgrip tiles contain 45% recycled material: 2 points.
Wall tiles: all Mosa wall tiles contain 22% preconsumer recycled material (6x6 inch size: 25%) and contribute to 1 credit point.
Indoor Environmental Quality
4.3 Low-emitting materials - floor systems
Mineral-based finished flooring products meet credit requirement without any IAQ testing needs (according to LEED update April 2012).
Mosa tiles are made of non-toxic, environmentally friendly and durable materials. Main ingredients are clay, minerals and feldspar, pressed together and fired at high temperatures in our patented Ultragres process. Mosa tiles are VOC-free and qualify for 1 point.
