Energy Efficient Openings at Earth Rangers Centre
The Earth Rangers Centre is double LEED certified, Gold and Platinum, making it the highest rated LEED facility in Canada.
As ASSA ABLOY shares the Earth Rangers’ philosophy to care for the environment, a partnership between the two organizations is a natural fit. ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions Canada and ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems were happy, and more than willing, to assist in the ERC’s pursuit of complete sustainability by installing energy efficient doors.
It’s common sense that a building’s envelope plays a major part in the energy use and thermal comfort of the building. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to maintain and improve the integrity of your doors, windows and insulation systems. This type of maintenance can be much more cost effective than replacing mechanical systems with higher-efficiency units.
The Earth Rangers Centre recently addressed this type of maintenance when working through the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance certification by performing a thermal scan of the building. Learn how this scan identified opportunities to improve building energy efficiency through the use of high performance doorways.
