Specifying high-performance door openings can be a difficult task while already trying to tackle a Green or NetZero building. To aid in the process, the consultative experts at ASSA ABLOY can help Green your specification for you.

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

Additionally, close to 40% of air infiltration comes from the building envelope. While door openings account for a small amount of these environmental impacts, using the appropriate accessories from ASSA ABLOY accessory lines will help take you to the next step of having a Green or NetZero building.
