Aug. 3, 2009


WAYLAND, NY – Gunlocke, an industry leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of wood contract furniture, has now made it even easier to include its sustainable product portfolio in projects to earn valuable LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits.

Gunlocke's latest online tool, the Green Calculator, provides designers and facility managers the opportunity to easily calculate how Gunlocke products can contribute to the earning of LEED credits for current and upcoming commercial interiors projects.

"Gunlocke's commitment to the environment and role as a leading resource for sustainable products is evident in our new Green Calculator tool," says Roy Green, Gunlocke’s director of stewardship and sustainability. "It allows decision-makers to easily see and calculate the benefits of using Gunlocke products in his/her next LEED project. Because it takes into consideration all the factors associated with selecting sustainable materials for a project, we're able to make specification simple and extremely efficient."

Located at, the free Green Calculator platform asks users to answer a series of questions that help formulate a customized solution for their LEED project. Users are first asked if they are still browsing for ideas or if they're ready to calculate available credits by using specific Gunlocke products. The product options specified with the Green Calculator include all of Gunlocke's FSC- (Forest Stewardship Council) certified products in contemporary, transitional and traditional styles, meeting the design needs for virtually every space.
