Tournesol Siteworks, LLC and the FairWeather Site Furnishing division take our responsibility to the environment seriously. We encourage personal recycling by our employees and recycle as much of our production scrap as possible.
Most of our products have a high percentage of recycled content. Recycled content percentages will be posted on our website in the near future. In the interim, please contact us for a recycled content breakdown for specific products.
Bicycle racks, when used in the appropriate quantities and location, can contribute to the Alternative Transportation credit. FairWeather has a wide selection of bike racks ranging from the traditional ribbon racks to our new Bike Guards® which combine creative designs with a unique method of securing bikes.
The energy savings obtained by the use of FairWeather LED lighted bollards can exceed 70% of the energy requirements of traditional outdoor light sources. In addition, these distinctive designs are cool to the touch and virtually sealed against water, bugs and dirt.
FairWeather Multi Cycle containers, when used in appropriate locations, allow recycled materials to be easily collected and sorted.
The materials used in most of our furnishings have a high recycled content. The material used in our steel and cast iron is made primarily from scrap, with a recycled content ranging from 95% – 98%. The steel is generally from 75% post consumer and 20 – 23% post industrial sources. The material normally used to produce our Recycled Plastic is 97% post consumer HDPE (high density polyethylene). This durable and versatile product is a smart choice as an alternative to wood for your specifying needs.
Zero exposure to tobacco smoke is a prerequisite to receiving the Indoor Environmental Quality credit. FairWeather Site Furnishings offers several options for creating attractive, litter free outdoor smoking areas. Our various benches, ash urns, trash receptacles – some with ash pans, tables and chairs can be combined and custom designed to meet any site planning need.
