Trio-E Energy Efficient Door Earns Design Recognition

Ceco Door has won a 2013 Platinum Award for Design Excellence (ADEX) for the Trio-E Energy Efficient Door.

The Trio-E Door received the highest Platinum award honors in the Building Products Doors and Windows category.

We are excited to be recognized with ADEX Platinum by Design Journal Magazine,” stated Trent Turner, Brand Manager for Ceco Door. “With approximately 2,000 nominations from nearly 500 companies seeking the ADEX honor, it is a true accomplishment that our Trio-E door received the highest honor of the ADEX awards".

The Trio-E door from Ceco is the most energy efficient steel stiffened door on the commercial market today. The Trio-E has achieved an operable U Factor of 0.29 which is 50% better than other steel stiffened doors currently available on the market today. The U-Factor of 0.29 was achieved in an operable condition (ASTM 1363) using the Ceco Thermal Break Frame and Pemko 273x3AFG Thermal Barrier Saddle. Air infiltration was tested (ASTM E283) with Ceco Thermal Break Frame and measured 0.04 CFM/SQ FT and 0.06 CFM/LN FT. This door and frame combination provides a superior air infiltration solution.

The Trio-E will provide years of strength and sustainable energy savings for any building. Many building owners spend millions of dollars a year on energy bills and the Trio-E represents a chance for them to realize significant savings on a new or retrofit project.
