KLEER CELLULAR PVC TRIM PRODUCTS ARE GREEN APPROVED BY THE NAHB RESEARCH CENTER
LAS VEGAS (January 22, 2013) — Kleer Lumber, Inc., a leading American manufacturer of cellular PVC
building products, announced today at the International Builders’ Show its National Green Building
Certification for Kleer Cellular PVC Trim Products for residential construction. Kleer Lumber has been
approved for points toward National Green Building Certification to the ICC 700-2008 National Green
Kleer Lumber offers a green solution to those who want an environmentally friendly way to upgrade
their homes. Kleer Cellular PVC Trim Products are Green Approved for the National Green Building
Certification by the NAHB Research Center. These products qualify under Practice Number 602.8,
“Termite-resistant materials are used in portions of the building” and Practice Number 601.7, “Building
materials/assemblies do not require additional site applied material for finishing.”
“It is important to be a good environmental citizen. We are proud to receive the National Green Building
Certification for our Cellular PVC Trim products,” stated Jack Delaney, senior vice president of marketing
and sales for Kleer Lumber.
Manufactured from cellular PVC to look and feel like painted wood, Kleer trimboard is highly resistant to
termites and can be installed in direct contact with the ground. It does not need to be painted for
protection because it does not absorb moisture. Kleer trimboard is the ideal low maintenance product
for all exterior trim applications.
Green Approved products can be used by builders to earn points toward National Green Building
Certification to the National Green Building Standard™. Approval is measured based on the National
Green Building Standard™, which is the best existing standard for green and sustainable residential
Homeowners can be assured that Kleer Cellular PVC Trim Products comply with specific green practice
criteria in the National Green Building Standard. See the product listing at
