YOUR WAY TO YOUR DGNB CERTIFICATE
COLLECT POINTS WITH ARWEI!
With regard to building certification, the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) considers a multitude of
sustainability criteria over the complete life cycle of a building.
Are you planning a DGNB certified building? No matter, if your target is a bronze, silver, gold or platinum award,
you will receive points for your certificate with the correct number and construction of dirt collection areas
(called by DGNB).
As part of the DGNB certification system up to 15 points are given based on the criteria catalogue for avoiding
dirt with a sufficient dirt collection zone in main entrances in front of and behind the door. The DGNB pursues the
target of saving cleaning efforts and resources during the operation of building.
SAVE RESOURCES WITH SUFFIENTLY DIMENSIONED SAUBERLAUF AREAS!
The use of ARWEI-Reinstreifer avoids bringing dirt into the building. The pleasant result: less personal, less
cleaning and less cleaning supplies and water is needed. This saves costs and the environment.
If all main entrances are furnished with dirt collection zones, the DGNB gives 5 points for the certification. Due to
the walking depth of the mat, more points can be achieved. In public buildings, additional 5 points are granted for
a length of 2.4m minimum and 10 points for a length of 4m minimum. According to strain of the dirt collection
areas different walking lengths are reasonable, there is no recommendation by the DGNB. Please consider page
16/17 in this catalogue.
For any questions, please contact us. We will be pleased to give advice.
