Sustainability /Local/DSS/Sustainability-old/park_524x224.jpg Sustainable building practices are the new norm in the construction industry. This growing acceptance of green building standards has led to greater use of building products that minimize the impact on the environment. Doors, frames and hardware can help construction professionals address specific sections of these tough building standards without straying from evidenced based design principles. Doorways can boost energy efficiency by improving building envelope thermal performance. This can be accomplished with doors and hardware designed to block heat/cold transfer, including insulated doors, thermal-brake frames, kerf frames, and gasketing/weatherstripping. Materials and resources sections of sustainable construction standards can be met by selecting doors and hardware made from high percentages of recycled content, certified wood and rapidly renewable materials such as agrifiber.
