UL Verified Ventilation & Filtration, powered by SafeTraces
UL’s Verified Ventilation and Filtration program is the first marketing claim evaluation program for aerosol removal in the built environment, powered by SafeTraces.
This assessment and rating program combines a comprehensive desktop review with field verification of ventilation and filtration performance powered by veriDART®, SafeTraces’ patented aerosol tracing technology. veriDART measures the combined impact of outdoor air ventilation, filtration or air cleaning technologies on HVAC recirculated air, and air cleaning technologies within the space. The program consists of the following components:
WELL Health-Safety Rating
veriDART® by SafeTraces tests and verifies effective ventilation and filtration performance for mitigating occupational exposures to airborne infectious aerosols in buildings. veriDART® can be used as an Innovation point for WELL v2 certification.
veriDART® has been approved by IWBI as an Alternative Adherence Path for the WELL Health-Safety Rating’s SA2 Assess and Maintain Air Treatment Systems (AAP-02575).
Project provides an inventory of all filters and UVGI equipment currently used to treat the air in the following locations (if any).
Air Treatment Assessment
A qualified engineer provides the project with an assessment of at least one of the following for occupiable areas.
veriDART approved for U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED v4.0/4.1 O+M rating system
The U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED rating system helps buildings to focus on efficiency and leadership to deliver the triple bottom line returns of people, planet and profit. Today’s version of LEED, LEED v4.1, raises the bar on building standards to address energy efficiency, water conservation, site selection, material selection, day lighting, indoor environmental quality and waste reduction. LEED is the world’s leading green building project and performance management system, delivering a comprehensive framework for green building design, construction, operations and performance.
veriDART®tests and verifies effective ventilation and filtration performance for mitigating occupational exposures to airborne infectious aerosols in buildings as a solution for Indoor Environmental Quality in LEED v4.0/v4.1 projects.
SafeTraces’ veriDART has been approved for use as a Pilot Credit in the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED v4.0/4.1 O+M rating system: “Testing and Verifying Performance of Ventilation and Filtration Controls for Reducing Occupational Exposures to Airborne Infectious Aerosols”.
