Optimize Energy Efficiency with High Performance Openings
Block thermal transmission with doorway products from ASSA ABLOY Group brands
Improve energy efficiency and building envelope performance with doors and hardware that reduce thermal transmission and thwart heat/cold exchange.
According to the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), in the United States alone, buildings account for:
- 72% of electricity consumption
- 39% of energy use
- 38% of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions
In addition, approximately 40% of air infiltration comes from the building envelope. Although doors account for a tiny percentage of the overall surface area of the building envelope, they are responsible for 11% of air infiltration.
This source of energy waste can be easily eliminated with the proper selection of doors and hardware.
