Launched in 1982, the Ernest C. Manning Awards are widely recognized as the premier innovation awards in Canada.  The Manning Awards Foundation annually salutes Canadians who demonstrate innovative talent in developing and successfully marketing a new concept, process or procedure. 

As founder and president of Electec, Mr. Hyde oversees new product development and the strategic direction of the company.  He holds several patents in the field of modular wiring systems, is a Professional Engineer and possesses over 30 years of diverse construction experience and manufacturing expertise.

Electec is a leading manufacturer of sustainable modular wiring systems for electrical branch circuits.  Products include EZ-Wiring® and EZ-Cabling®, both of which were awarded Top-10 Green Building Products of 2010 by the editors of BuildingGreen and the esteemed GreenSpec directory.

November 2010 - Electec’s eco-friendly modular wiring system selected as a BuildingGreen Top-10 Product

CHICAGO, IL, November 18, 2010 – Electec’s low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) modular wiring system has been selected as one of BuildingGreen’s Top-10 products of the year by the editors of Environmental Building News and GreenSpec®. This ninth annual award recognizes the most innovative and exciting green building products added to the GreenSpec® Directory during the past year or covered in Environmental Building News.

“Our selections of the Top-10 Green Building Products represent a wide range of product types in many different application areas,” noted BuildingGreen founder and GreenSpec executive editor Alex Wilson. This year’s list is particularly diverse, ranging from a decking product made from recycled carpeting, to a window glass with UV-reflective patterning that is highly visible to birds (to minimize collisions), an ingenious toilet that uses a passive vacuum-assist mechanism to achieve excellent performance using just 0.8 gallons, an LED lighting module that offers comparable light quality to that of halogen, and an advanced, cellulose-insulated modular wall system for residential building. “Many of our Top-10 products this year have multiple environmental attributes,” said Wilson.

BuildingGreen’s Top-10 product selections, as in previous years, are drawn primarily from new additions to the company’s GreenSpec Product Directory. Over 170 products have been added to the GreenSpec database during the past year. “New products are being introduced all the time, making it a challenge for our staff to keep up,” said Wilson. The GreenSpec database includes more than 2,200 product listings, representing several times as many actual products.

A big driver in the development of green products continues to be the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Rating System (Management in Energy and Environmental Design), which awards points for the use of certain product types or for the energy or water savings that certain green products can achieve. “Designers of LEED buildings are looking for green products, and manufacturers are responding,” said Wilson. In the online version of GreenSpec, users can find products organized by LEED credits.

Electec’s EZ-Wiring® is a cost-effective plug-and-play modular wiring system that contains no halogens (bromine, chlorine, or fluorine), which are commonly used in cable sheathing, and no heavy metals. Rated as “low-smoke, zero-halogen” (LSZH), these systems are compliant with the European Union’s RoHS and REACH programs. The H-Series is an eight-wire system for applications such as systems furniture, advanced lighting controls, and raised-floor systems. Electec’s EZ-Cabling® is a LSZH steel-shielded voice/data zone cabling system that satisfies requirements for Cat 5e, 6, and 6A cabling. All of these systems are designed for easy reuse and reconfiguration using foolproof, uniquely keyed connections. This provides benefits in the form of resource and cost savings, easier retrofits, and preventing the buildup of abandoned cabling in walls or air-handling spaces, a common fire and health hazard. While the product cost is higher than that of standard cabling systems, the installed cost, according to the manufacturer, is comparable to (or slightly less than) standard construction, because of reduction in installation time.

GreenSpec is the leading national directory of green building products. Products are selected based on criteria developed over the past 18 years. Manufacturers do not pay to be listed in GreenSpec, and neither GreenSpec nor Environmental Building News carry advertising; both are supported by users of the information. “Our policy of not accepting money from product manufacturers allows us to be objective in our review of products,” said Wilson. The GreenSpec product database is also available online as part of the BuildingGreen Suite.

Other BuildingGreen resources include Environmental Building News, the oldest and most widely respected newsletter in the green building field, and LEEDuser.com, a resource for teams pursuing certification through the LEED Rating System. BuildingGreen celebrates its 25th year in business this year. For information on BuildingGreen resources, visit www.BuildingGreen.com or call 800-861-0954.
