Green Building

Connect the Networks of Environmentally Efficient Buildings, using Garland’s Pro Series Green Star Rated Cables.

In the current world climate, there is the need to both protect the environment and to improve consumer safety. The trend towards green building and construction has been driven by this demand.

So what is green building? A green building incorporates design, construction and operational practices that significantly reduce or eliminate the negative impacts to the environment and building occupants. Building green is an opportunity to use resources efficiently whilst creating a healthier environment. As an added benefit, it can also considerably reduce construction and performance costs.

Some reasons for going green, include:

  • Lower operating costs
  • Attraction and retention of tenants
  • Reduced liability and risk
  • Healthier places to live and work
  • Demonstration of corporate social responsibility
  • Future-proofing of assets

You may be wondering how you can make a difference through your cable choices. How does cabling fit into the green building and eco-friendly equation?

The cables that you choose for your next project can make a huge difference. Madison Express is here to assist you by offering sustainable cable solutions from Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) cables through to Best Environment Practice (BEP) qualified PVC cables. We are the sole distributor of Garland Pro Series cables. Registered by the Vinyl Council of Australia, Garland’s Pro Series can help you achieve your Green Star rating through supplying a leading range of BEP qualified PVC compliant cables. Using the Garland Pro Series range helps to lower the use of non-compliant PVC; the third most widely produced plastic in the world.

Another Green Alternative

Optical fibre is another choice that is more eco-friendly. Fibre technology promotes faster data speeds, uses less power and produces fewer emissions into the environment. Businesses that are interested in attaining an internationally recognised Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification are choosing optical fibre cabling systems.

We are committed to sustainability and reducing our impact on the earth.  Therefore, we are always examining ways to increase our range of Garland Pro Series cables to include more LSZH alternatives, as well as new BEP qualified PVC designs.
