Designer Pages is a product management platform for architects to search for building products through a health focused lens. It can integrate product information directly into a project for evaluation and specification. Designer Pages allows architects to filter by different health focused transparency certifications including Living Building Challenge DECLARE, Cradle to Cradle, BIFMA, Health Product Declarations and BuildingGreen approved.  Using Designer Pages, product information can be easily searched and filtered to learn more about the product, its transparency documentation and include it in your next project. If you are already using Kawneer products and just need transparency information, please visit the Kawneer Product Transparency page.


Launched in the summer of 2016, mindful MATERIALS (mM) is an industry-wide initiative developed for manufacturers to clearly communicate the transparency and optimization of their building products. The cloud-based mM Library provides designers a way to filter and search for products by CSI division and transparency information.  mindful MATERIALS tracks Cradle to Cradle Product certifications, Living Building Challenge DECLARE products, Health Product Declarations, Environmental Product Declarations and more.  The mM initiative also provides a transparency label that effectively and efficiently conveys transparency information.  Manufacturers fill out and place a transparency label on binders of mM qualified products in architecture firm resource libraries.  Search the cloud-based mM Library for Kawneer products, or find transparency documentation for Kawneer products on the Kawneer Product Transparency page.
